The Dallas Cowboys were back at practice on Friday, preparing for their final game of the regular season against Washington. Fortunately, this won't be the final game for the Cowboys, or even be a Week 17 play-in game for the playoffs, a tradition they upheld over the past three years. The Cowboys took care of business last week and come into this game with the security of an NFC East crown and a playoff berth. The big question surrounding this week's game is how much should Dallas pursue the remote chance on improving their playoff seeding? If you listen to Jason Garrett, there's no question. They will go all out to win the game.
As far as practice goes, almost everybody is participating and likely to play. DeMarco Murray returned to practice today after being sent home sick yesterday. That left only two players who aren't practicing this week and likely to miss Sunday's game against Washington. Right tackle Doug Free will miss another game and Jeremy Parnell will get another chance to show what he can do. Linebacker Dekoda Watson will also miss the game.
So BTB, would you play everybody and go all out? Or would you be careful and rest some starters?
