This coming Sunday will be a huge day for D.C. sports, as the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys will face off in an epic NFC East battle in the final game of the 2012 NFL regular season. The showdown will take place at FedEx field in Landover, MD and Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has decided to extended metro hours by an hour now that the game has been moved to the 8:20 p.m. prime time position.

Here's a statement from WMATA:

Fans leaving FedEx Field for Morgan Boulevard station will find the last Blue Line train headed toward Franconia-Springfield at 12:25 a.m., and the last Blue Line train to Largo Town Center at 1:33 a.m. Customers will be able to make connections to other lines as follows:

• Orange Line – transfer at Stadium-Armory

• Green or Yellow line – transfer at L’Enfant Plaza

• Red Line – transfer at Metro Center

Entrances at all other Metro stations will close at their normal times, but customers will be able to exit at all stations during the additional hour of service.

The extended Metrorail service is funded by an agreement with the Washington Redskins.

It's goin' down Sunday night.
