How to win a contest to see the first NFL playoff game
What happens when the Cowboys play the Redskins in the NFC Championship game in the New Orleans Superdome on Sunday?
We’ll have to wait and see.
The Cowboys and Redskins have played just twice, with the Cowboys winning 31-14 on Oct. 30, 1974, and the Redskins falling to Pittsburgh 24-7 on Oct.
“You can only win the first playoff game, but you can win it by a certain number,” said Cowboys quarterback Jerry Rice, a three-time Super Bowl winner.
“You win it, it’s yours.
The rest is history.”
This year, the Cowboys will play the first game of the postseason, the first between the two teams since the 1999 Super Bowl, when the New York Giants defeated the Washington Redskins, 28-21.
The game will be played in a neutral site stadium on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on the last Sunday of October.
The Redskins have not played in the postseason since they defeated the New England Patriots, 24-14, in the 1999 NFC Championship Game.
The contest has been marred by controversies, with players refusing to stand during the national anthem in the preseason and the coach calling the players to the sideline during the game.
The protests have caused tension in the NFL, with teams and players protesting and kneeling during the anthem.
The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-21 in a National Football League playoff game on Oct 30, 2018 in Washington.
