It's the Boys vs. the Indigenous Persons on FOX!

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings, Raider Nation! I hope you all are having a fantastic Thanksgiving and stuffing yourselves full of turkey, mashes potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce. This afternoon's game features two long-standing NFC East rivals, the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Indigenous Persons. The Cowboys are the unquestioned best team in football at 9-1, but Washington is hot on their heels and coming off a great performance against Green Bay on Sunday Night Football.

Ezekiel Elliott may be the most serious challenger for Derek Carr's rightful MVP award this season, and Dak Prescott has quickly turned into a franchise quarterback and made Tony Romo completely expendable. Dallas' defense will have its hands full today against a Persons attack led by Kirk Cousins that put up a Mayflower full of points against the Packers earlier this week. While Robert Griffin III is trying to duct-tape his knee back together in Cleveland, Cousins is the franchise signal-caller that Washington has been searching for for so long.

This game will start around 1:30 PM Pacific Time on FOX.
