LANDOVER, Md. - Any given Sunday, one NFL team can tie another.If youre the Dallas Cowboys, thats one of your top motivations for playing Tony Romo and DeMarco Murray, and otherwise giving your all in the season finale against the Washington Redskins.For the Cowboys-Redskins outcome to have any significance in the playoff picture, at least one other game Sunday has to end in a draw. The Cowboys have already clinched the NFC East and will earn a first-round bye with losses by Seattle and Arizona — regardless of what they do against their division rival.But they can also get a bye through multiple other scenarios. For example, a Dallas win and a Detroit-Green Bay tie would do the trick. Add in a loss or tie by Arizona, and the Cowboys would become the No. 1 seed in the conference.So, even though Romo could probably use a week off to rest his nagging back, and even though Murray broke his hand two weeks ago, look for both to be out there.Theres a playoff scenario with us winning the game that will give us an opportunity to get a first-round bye, Dallas coach Jason Garrett said, so were going to take advantage of what we can take advantage of.Its quite the contrast from seasons past, when the Cowboys didnt care what happened elsewhere. Three years running, they needed a win on the final weekend of the regular season to clinch a playoff berth — and failed each time.Now theyre in with a week to spare, and the last thing they want to hear is that their game might be meaningless.I think really you think about momentum, tight end Jason Witten said. This game is a crazy game. You want to play well every opportunity you get. For one, theres still stuff out there for us. And then, two, you want to be playing well going into the playoffs. You never want to back door your way into it. I think this team has been playing well, and we want to continue to do that.Heres more thats in store Sunday as the Cowboys (11-4) and Redskins (4-11) wrap up the regular season:RECORDS TO BREAK: Another reason for playing Murray is his pursuit of Emmitt Smiths franchise rushing record. Murray leads the NFL with 1,745 yards and needs 29 to surpass Smiths mark of 1,773 from 1995.Also, Romo has a chance to finish with one of the five best passer ratings in NFL history. Hes sixth right now at 114.4, and a stellar game would move him past Peyton Mannings 115.1 last year with Denver.Then theres Dez Bryant, who leads the league with 14 touchdown catches and needs one to tie Terrell Owens franchise record from 2007.OH, ITS YOU AGAIN: The Cowboys-Redskins rivalry loses much of its sting when one or both of the teams are struggling, but Washingtons signature victory in an otherwise tough season was a Monday night win at Dallas in October.One of the oldest one-liners in D.C. is that its permissible for Washington to go 2-14 if both wins come against the Cowboys. The Redskins wouldnt be far off the mark with a victory on Sunday.I know we are 4-11, not a whole lot of excitement after this game happening, Washington coach Jay Gruden said. But, still, to beat Dallas, to play Dallas is a great opportunity for a lot of guys to get more work and go against a heck of a football team. Thats always great.COWBOYS GOT D: Sure, everyone knows Romo, Murray and Bryant — and the young offensive line has received its props as well — but the Dallas defence might be the most improved of all.The Cowboys allowed 1 yard rushing last week against the Colts and have held five of their last six opponents to 89 yards rushing or fewer. A defence that was worst in the league last year is ranked 16th with one game to go — not bad considering that all six Dallas players selected to the Pro Bowl came from the other side of the ball.RG3S CASE: The game represents one last chance this season for Washingtons Robert Griffin III to show that hes making progress as a pocket passer.There was improvement last week in a win over Philadelphia that broke a six-game skid, although Griffin sprained his shoulder late in the game and was limited in practice this week. Hes expected to play Sunday.HISTORY LESSON: In 2007, the Cowboys had already clinched a playoff spot when they sleepwalked through a 27-6 loss at Washington in the final weekend of the regular season. That Dallas team was 13-3 and appeared poised for a Super Bowl run, but it lost to the New York Giants in its first playoff game.___AP NFL websites: and Joseph White on Twitter: Jose Juan Barea Jersey. Louis, MO (SportsNetwork. Justin Anderson Jersey. -- John Senden never imagined it would take more than seven years to win again. TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie tweeted on Monday that Hemsky will be going to market as an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Swingman Jason Kidd Jersey. -- The Minnesota Vikings released reserve cornerback A. Swingman Jose Juan Barea Jersey. Sam, who joined the Cowboys in early September, has spent the entire season on the practice roster.Roberto Luongo will looking to erase some painful memories as he leads the Vancouver Canucks against the Bruins tonight. Luongo will be making his first start at the TD Garden since Game 6 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Final when he surrendered three first period goals in a potential Cup-clinching game for the Canucks. The Canucks will try to avoid matching their longest winless streak of the season on Tuesday night as they visit the Atlantic Division-leading Bruins. The Canucks have lost four straight in regulation, one setback shy of their longest stretch without a win this season done twice before. Vancouver was able to earn some points over those earlier droughts, going 0-3-2 from Nov. 9-19 and 0-2-3 from Dec. 30-Jan. 7. Vancouver is holding on to the eighth spot in the Western Conference by just a single point over the Phoenix Coyotes and were unable to get a spark from the return of both coach John Tortorella and captain Henrik Sedin on Monday. Tortorella returned to the bench after serving a 15-day suspension for his actions in a game versus the Calgary Flames on Jan. 18, missing six games. Sedin was absent for each one due to a rib injury that halted his consecutive games played streak at 679 and was held off the scoresheet in last nights 2-0 setback to the Detroit Red Wings. Eddie Lack made 28 saves in the second contest of a five-game road trip, but Detroit got eight saves from Jonas Gustavsson in the first period before he exited due to dizziness. Jimmy Howard stopped all 16 Vancouver shots he faced the rest of the way. "We cant buy a win right now," Lack said. "Im trying to do my job and keep us in every game. Its tough." After Detroit scored the games first goal early in the second period, David Booth was hooked on a breakaway and awarded a penalty shot. However, Howard turned his chance aside to leave the Canucks and Tortorella frustrated. "We need to change the complexion of our hockey club, either with our play or with different people, because we looked like a slow hockey team tonight," noted Tortorella. "Were going to keep on banging away to try and get better, but its very frustrating to see the same looks. It worries me. Ill leave it at that." One change that could happen tonight is the insertion of defenseman Raphael Diaz into the lineup. He was acquiredd in a trade with the Montreal Canadiens on Monday for forward Dale Weise.dddddddddddd Diaz could make his debut with the Canucks tonight after notching 11 assists and a minus-4 rating in 43 games with the Habs this season. Hell help fill a void on the back end left by injuries to Kevin Bieksa (foot) and Christopher Tanev (thumb). The Bruins will host the Canucks to close a four-game homestand and are 6-1-1 in their last eight games. That stretch includes a disappointing and lackluster 4-1 loss to Montreal on Thursday, but Boston rebounded to secure a 4-0 triumph over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday. Chad Johnson made 22 saves in his first shutout of the season and second of his career, while Boston scored three times in the third period to break open a close game. Dougie Hamilton started the burst 6:43 into the frame before Carl Soderberg and Torey Krug followed with goals. David Krejci also lit the lamp and Zdeno Chara added a pair of assists for the Bruins, who posted 19 of their 41 shots in the third period. "Well, I think so -- a much better game tonight in all aspects of it," said Bruins head coach Claude Julien comparing the game to Thursdays loss to Montreal. "Thought that goal by Dougie kind of made everybody relax a little bit more and our game seemed to get better after that too." Boston leads the Tampa Bay Lightning by four points for the top spot in the division and will have Chara in the lineup tonight for the last time before the Olympic break. The hulking defenseman will not play on Thursday in St. Louis or Saturday versus Ottawa as he had earlier been selected to carry Slovakias flag during the Opening Ceremonies on Friday for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. The Bruins have lost three of their last four versus the Canucks, including a 6-2 setback on Dec. 14 that marked the first time the two clubs met in Vancouver since Boston won Game 7 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. Tuukka Rask got the start for the Bruins, but was pulled early in the second period after allowing four goals on 23 shots. He fell to 0-1-1 with a 3.38 goals against average in his career versus the Canucks. Sedin had a goal and an assist in the victory, while Roberto Luongo posted 39 saves to improve to 12-10-3 in his career versus Boston with a 2.38 GAA and four shutouts. china nfl jerseys ' ' '
