Dallas looks like the most complete team in the NFC at the moment while the Redskins enter this week wondering – who is going to start at quarterback? Will Washington provide the shock of the year thus far or will Dallas keep the roll going?

Let’s break it down.


The oddsmakers certainly aren’t giving the Redskins a whole lotta love this week – they are 9 1/2 point underdogs and seemingly rightfully so. The Skins are coming off a 19-17 win against Tennessee but the win was hardly inspiring.

Kirk Cousins was benched after an utterly ineffective first half and the underwhelming Colt McCoy was thrust into action. McCoy was OK in guiding the Skins back for the win but he is a third string QB for a reason – he’s just not that great.

There is a chance that RG3 could return to action this week but it is unlikely meaning that Cousins and his nine interceptions so far (4 in his last 6 quarters of action) or McCoy will start on Monday – ugh!

Washington’s defense has been a surprise this season – they certainly aren’t the reason the team is 2-5. The Skins 12th ranked rushing defense will have their hands full with DeMarco Murray and company and the pass defense will be tasked with slowing the efficient and effective Tony Romo and his quality stable of pass catchers – Dez Bryant and Terrence Williams.

The Skins are allowing just 218 yards per game through the air but they have yet to face the quality they are about to face this week.


Simply put, the advantage goes to Dallas’s offense over Washington’s OK defense.


I like may have been waiting for the Dallas collapse – but it doesn’t appear as though that is going to come any time soon.

DeMarco Murray is officially the record holder for consecutive 100+ rushing yards per game to start a season – seven straight after a 128 yard rushing effort against the Giants last week. Murray and the Cowboys bring the league’s beat rushing offense into Monday night’s game – awfully hard to stop even for some of the best run-stopping units like the Seattle Seahawks.

And then there’s Tony Romo who threw for 279 yards and three TDs last week. Romo is gladly being overshadowed by Murray. He is quietly putting up Pro-Bowl numbers, he is taking care of the ball and he is distributing the ball to a stellar group of receivers. Heck even Gavin Escobar caught two TDs last week.

Dallas continues to play solid defense – the offense can take some of the credit as teams are being forced to play from behind and are frequently being dominated in the time of possession battles.

NFL Week 8 Betting Trends

• WAS are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 Mon. games.
• WAS are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games.
• DAL are 8-20 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.
• Over is 10-4-1 in DAL last 15 Mon. games.
• Over is 7-3 in DAL last 10 games on fieldturf.
• WAS are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings.
• Underdog is 24-8 ATS in their last 32 meetings.

The Redskins are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games at Dallas. That said the Skins have a real chance of heading into Monday night’s game with their third string quarterback. To beat the Cowboys right now – a team has to be at the top of their game.

NFL Week 8 Betting Prediction:

Washington without a top tier pivot certainly won’t be at the top of their game.
