Each matchup in the NFC East has the feel of a major-time rivalry game, especially during December. The Washington Football Team and the Dallas Cowboys are as intense as any of the others, with Sunday being the most recent example.
Dak Prescott was moving towards the sideline when he lost control of the ball and threw it downfield. Will Bradley-King, a Washington defensive end, pushed Prescott just before he stepped out of bounds. The Cowboys reacted with outrage, and La’el Collins came in to fight Bradley-King.
Ezekiel Elliot, the running back, was also involved.
Collins was kicked out of the game after he threw a punch. This will be the latest in a long line of games that the right tackle has missed this year. The full incident can be viewed.

Tyron Smith , Dallas Cowboys offensive tackle, was forced to withdraw from Sunday’s game against Washington Football Team because of a left knee injury. Jon Machota, Cowboys reporter tweeted Smith was seen struggling to walk it off.
At the start of the fourth quarter, the Cowboys (14-4) had a comfortable lead of 27-8. It would be logical to allow Smith to rest since Dallas appears to have the game in its hands.
The Cowboys are now down to two losses after a blistering 6-1 start. It is their second consecutive victory.
In just two weeks, the two teams will be meeting again at AT&T Stadium. Each team has NFC East games between them, with Dallas hosting the New York Giants and Washington hosting the Philadelphia Eagles.
