The Washington Redskins' 38-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving was a feel-good story (and that's not the tryptophan talking). Robert Griffin III made his triumphant return to Texas, well, triumphant, throwing four touchdowns in leading the 'Skins to their first-ever victory on Turkey Day in Dallas.
There were plenty of other feel-good moments during Thursday's game, but more in the "we're laughing at you, not with you" kind of the way.
Like when DeAngelo Hall and Dez Bryant almost came to blows on the sideline. Key word being "almost."
After jawing at each other throughout the game, the two finally had had enough of each other. There was some pushing and some finger-wagging, but the magic happens when Hall gives Bryant a hard shove in the facemask. Bryant then looks around like that drunk guy at the bar looking for his friends to "hold me back, bro!" before winding up a fake punch. Hall never flinches and Bryant walks away defiantly.
As you can see in the video, the two later patch things up, proving that even two of the NFL's biggest hotheads -- I mean, Hall was just fined $30,000 for verbally abusing an official and had to be restrained during an argument with a reporter, while Bryant is a 24-year-old man who has a midnight curfew and is not allowed to attend strip clubs -- can work things out.
