The Washington Redskins and rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III have their biggest test of the season in week 17.

The Redskins (9-6) host the Dallas Cowboys (8-7) on Sunday Night Football. It's a crucial game for both teams, as the winner will clinch the NFC East.

The Redskins can lose but still get into the playoffs if the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings lose, too.

If the Cowboys lose Sunday, they won't make the playoffs.

The Redskins will try for their second win of the season against the Cowboys. On Nov. 22, Washington won a shootout, 38-31. That was the second win in a six-game winning streak the team is currently riding.
