The Dallas Cowboys (8-4) and Washington Football Team (6-6) will square off for the first time this season, pitting the top two teams in the NFC East against each other Sunday. Kickoff will be at 1 p.m. ET from FedExField as Dallas tries to pull further ahead in the division. The Cowboys should be well-rested after getting some extra time off following their win over the Saints last Thursday night, snapping their two-game losing streak. Dallas is still only 2-3 in the last five games with those losses coming against the Broncos, Chiefs and Raiders, though the Cowboys did win comfortably against the Saints and the Falcons.
Washington has caught fire as of late, winning its last four games after losing four in a row in October. The Football Team’s most impressive win came Nov. 14 vs. the Buccaneers, blowing them out 29-19 at home. Washington’s numbers aren’t all that impressive, ranking 21st in scoring offense and 23rd in points allowed, but it has found ways to get it done in order to claw back to .500.
