The Cowboys were pretty shorthanded and banged up when they faced the Redskins at home on Sept. 26, but found a way to win.
Now it'll be the Redskins likely having even bigger problems when they face the Cowboys on Nov. 20 at FedEx Field. Longtime Cowboys nemesis Santana Moss is expected to miss 5-7 weeks with a broken hand that required surgery.
While there are just three games in between now and the Cowboys-Redskins' rematch, Moss likely won't be rushed back in time, especially considering the nature of the injury and the position he plays.
Add that to running back Tim Hightower being lost for the season with a torn ACL, and the fact they've already switched quarterbacks from Rex Grossman to John Beck, and the Cowboys appear to have caught a break in their next game with the Skins.
In 13 career games against Dallas, Moss has 78 catches for 1,125 yards and six touchdowns.
Obviously, that's not the focus this week as the Cowboys head to Philadelphia to face a talented Eagles team coming off a bye week, which followed a road win over those Redskins.
