First place in the NFC East is on the line as the Washington Redskins (6-4) play the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) at AT&T Stadium for Thanksgiving as Week 12 action begins on Thursday.
The game is scheduled to start at 4:40 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on Fox. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch a live stream of the game (or DVR it) on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
Fox (live in all 32 NFL markets) is included in FuboTV’s main package, which includes 85 total channels and is largely tailored towards sports fans. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the FuboTV website, or on your tablet or streaming device via the FuboTV app.
If you can’t watch live, FuboTV comes with 30 hours of Cloud DVR (with the ability to upgrade to 500 hours), as well as a handy “72-Hour Lookback” feature, which will allow you to watch the game on-demand up to three days after it airs even if you forgot to record it.
In addition to their extensive Netflix-like streaming library, Hulu now also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including Fox (live in all 32 NFL markets). You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).

The Cowboys fell flat against the Tennessee Titans in a disappointing effort on Monday Night Football in Week 9. Head coach Jason Garrett’s seat started getting hotter, even though it has been reported owner Jerry Jones wouldn’t make an in-season coaching change. Since, the Cowboys have impressively put back-to-back one-score road victories against the Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons together to revive their season.
Dallas has returned to the style of offense which was responsible for a 13-win season just a few short years ago. Ezekiel Elliott has carried the Cowboys on offense over the past two weeks, rushing for 151 against the Eagles and 122 against the Falcons; Zeke has three touchdowns (one rushing and receiving vs. Philadelphia, one rushing vs. Atlanta) as well.
Washington’s hope for a division championship run sustained a serious setback on Sunday when Alex Smith was carted off with a gruesome leg injury in the third quarter of a 23-21 loss to the Houston Texans. 33 years to the day Joe Theismann’s career ended eerily on a similar hit — in a game that was also 23-21, ironically — the 34-year old Smith suffered a season-ender.
Backup Colt McCoy will take over starting duties, something he has been used to in the past. Garrett spoke about preparing for McCoy with reporters this week.
“I don’t see them changing very much in what they do because (McCoy is) capable of doing everything physically and he’s got a good command of what they want to do.”
McCoy completed 6 of 12 passes and took a sack in relief of Smith against the Texans on Sunday. For “insurance,” the Redskins signed Mark Sanchez this week. Sanchez will serve as McCoy’s backup against the Cowboys on Thursday.
