Redskins-Cowboys: what time, TV channel, how to watch

October 21, 2018 GMT

The Redskins seek their first NFC East win Sunday when they take on the Dallas Cowboys. Here’s what you need to know:

Opponent: Dallas Cowboys (3-3, 1-0 NFC East)

Where: FedEx Field, Landover, Maryland

When: Sunday, Oct. 21, 4:25 p.m.

Television: CBS

Radio: The Team 980

What to watch for: Can the Redskins string together consecutive victories for the first time this season? They’re out to prove they’re better than a .500 team. ... Wide receiver Jamison Crowder has already been ruled out, but running back Chris Thompson (rib, knee) and wideout Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) are unlikely to play, as well. ... The Cowboys have struggled offensively on the road, so this could be a favorable matchup for the Redskins’ defense. ... Hello friends, Jim Nantz will be calling his first Redskins game in 25 years. Sunday’s matchup is on CBS, not FOX.
