John Wall has spent his entire NBA career with the Washington Wizards, although that hasn’t prevented him from showing what NFL team he truly supports.

On Sunday, the 26-year-old point guard arrived at the Dallas Cowboys’ 27-23 road win over the Redskins at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland donning a throwback Emmitt Smith Cowboys jersey.


 The move surely drew anger from the mostly-Redskins-fans stadium.


Wall even went so far as to throw up the “X” before talking to wide receiver Dez Bryant on the sidelines before the game.


The Redskins quickly noted, however, that Wall has supported both teams. He has been shown wearing a Redskins jersey in the past, although many believe his true loyalties lie with Dallas.


Redskins (0-2) fans roasted Wall for donning a Cowboys jersey Sunday in Washington territory, given that the North Carolina native has always played in D.C.


The Cowboys (1-1) won after Alfred Morris scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 4-yard run with less than five minutes remaining. Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins threw an end-zone interception.

With rookie Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott scrambling for a 6-yard TD in the second half, the Cowboys won for only the second time in their past 16 games without the injured Tony Romo– and both of those wins came at Washington.

Prescott finished 22 for 30 for 292 yards.

Cousins went 28 for 46 for 364 yards, with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jamison Crowder in the third quarter that gave Washington its first lead, 17-13 in the third quarter.

The Cowboys will next host the Chicago Bears on Sunday, while the Redskins will visit the New York Giants on Sunday.
