Washington Redskins: Look to the results of the last Redskins home game before the election to see which candidate will come out ahead -- a Redskins win predicts a victory for the incumbent, while a loss means the challenger will win. This rule has held in 17 out of 18 elections since 1940, according to CNN. The Redskins have a home game against the Panthers on Sunday.


 Robert Griffin III threw for 311 yards and four touchdowns, helping the Washington Redskins beat the Dallas Cowboys 38-31 on Thursday.
The Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor made the Cowboys (5-6) look like an overmatched college team during the decisive second quarter in his first trip to Texas as a pro.
Griffin was 8 of 8 for 178 yards with three touchdowns to key the first 28-point quarter in 13 years for the Redskins (5-6). The rookie became the first Washington quarterback to throw four touchdown passes in consecutive games.
Tony Romo lost for the first time in six starts on Thanksgiving, despite a career-high 441 yards and three second-half touchdowns, including a career-long 85-yarder to Dez Bryant.
