Coming off losses both teams are desperate for a win in this one.
There is not expected to be a dominant team in the NFC East so there is going to be even more pressure on these two pointer games.
Especially for Dallas which is already 0-1 in the division after a close loss at home to the Giants last week.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with Dallas hitting the road in search of some hope. Washington can’t afford another loss either as two home losses to start the season would
You have to hand it to the Cowboys, they are certainly never boring. Amidst a lot of hoopla they were thisclose to beating the Giants in their home opener. Whether that is indicative of their luck or not will be determined by how they respond this week.
Rookie QB Dak Prescott was solid but unspectacular in his NFL debut.
They might have a bonafide starter in their midst but the is certainly not Romo.
Their other touted rookie, RB Ezekiel Elliott was meh in his first action.
He scored a touchdown but ran for just 51 yards. If the Cowboys are supposed to have the best offensive line in the league it didn’t show much in this one.
The Dallas defense is going to have to be better than expected if they are going to compete in the NFC East. Against New York they were alright but unspectactular.
Kicker Dan Bailey is a weapon, he had two 50+ yard field goals last week. However, the chip shots he made showed that Dallas had trouble converting from in close.
After winning the first quarter in Monday night the Redskins were a dud.
They could not convert in the red zone and ultimately go far down that they could not have any sense of a balanced attack. It was definitely not a good start to the season.
Washington had no running game against Pittsburgh. Matt Jones is supposed to be a sleeper back but we did not see a lot of that in this one.
Kirk Cousins is a competent passer but I think he needs the threat of running to be effective.
The defense was pushed around up front and they have to be concerned that Dallas will follow that approach in this one.
They have proven to be one of the most effective rushing teams in the league when they want to be.
Ryan Kerrigan got one big sack against Big Ben on Monday.
Against a rookie quarterback, even one that is mobile like Dak Prescott they might want to really get after him and force him to beat them…if he can.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Dallas +3.5
If you read my Bengals/Steelers piece you will see some similarities here. Division game with the underdog getting that crucial extra half point on the road….for now. If you like them like I do don’t let this number get away.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Dallas 24 – Washington 20
Unlike Cincinnati I think that Dallas can win this one outright. I am not sure they are the better team but I like the way they matchup.
In another strange similarity, both teams split and won on the road last season too.
