If the Washington Football Team was not feeling motivated enough by Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy essentially guaranteeing a victory on Sunday, they could merely look across the field for a reminder of what their opponents think of them.

The Cowboys flew in their own benches from Dallas for Sunday’s game at FedExField. They are the first team to ever do that, according to Mitchell Tischler of NBC Sports Washington.

Tischler noted that the opposing team controls their own sideline, so there was nothing Washington could have done even if they didn’t like the move. Here’s another look:

It’s unclear why the Cowboys went through the trouble of flying in their own benches. Temperatures were expected to be in the 40s for the game, and some speculated that Washington’s benches might not be properly heated. There has been no confirmation of that, though.

Final Score:Dallas 27, Washington 20
