Week 7 Primer: Cowboys @ Football Team

Nobody expected there to be this many similarities between Dallas and Washington at the start of the year. Washington was undergoing a complete structural rebuild under new head coach Ron Rivera, who was given complete control over the front office as well as football operations.
