The battle for the top spot in the NFC East right now is closer than ever with three teams tied and half a game separating them from first place. Philadelphia currently is the leader in the division, but that will change when the Washington Football Team takes on the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Week 12.
The Cowboys are coming off a close win against the Vikings 31-28, while the Football team took down the Bengals 20-9 their last time out.
Washington Football Team
The Football team snapped a two-game losing streak after getting a win over Cincinnati on Sunday. The NFC East is now wide open with Philadelphia dropping the last two games. Washington will try to sweep the season series from the Cowboys for the first time since 2012 and the winner of this game will control sole possession of first place (unless there is a tie).
On the season, the Football Team is 24th in the league in passing offense with 224.9 yards per game. Washington stands 25th in the league in rushing offense with 99.1 yards per contest. The Football Team is just 29th in scoring offense by putting up 20 points per game this year.
Alex Smith is 1-3 since taking over as the starting quarterback in Washington and it seems like he is not going to be the long-term solution to this offense. Smith has completed 88 of 129 passes for 918 yards to go along with two touchdowns and four interceptions this season.
One rookie that isn’t getting any love for the OROY is Antonio Gibson. He is the lead back in the ground game for Washington with 119 carries for 530 yards plus eight touchdowns. He is second amongst rookies in rushing yards and first in touchdowns this season.
If there has been a bright spot for this Washington team, it’s most definitely their defense this season. As a team, they’re limiting opponents to 22.7 points per game this season which is the 10th best mark in the NFL. Chase Young has been a monster upfront for the Washington front seven and leads all rookies in sacks this season.
Dallas broke a four-game losing streak as they welcomed Andy Dalton back under center after he missed three games with a concussion and COVID-19. The Cowboys moved into a three-way tie for second place in the NFC East with the Giants and Washington after a win over the Vikings in their last time out. Dallas was outgained 430-376 and lost the time of possession battle 31:49 to 28:11 in the game, but somehow still managed to leave Minnesota with a win.
On the year, the Cowboys are the seventh-best team in the league in passing with 276.1 yards per contest. Dallas is 13th in rushing offense with 117 yards per game this season. The Cowboys are the 20th best scoring offense as they average 23.5 points a night.
Andy Dalton had his first start in a Cowboys uniform where he was a serviceable quarterback. Dalton completed 22 of 32 passes for 203 yards to go along with three touchdowns and one interception. With Dalton under center, they are averaging 14.6 points per game through three starts.
Ezekiel Elliott leads the team with 171 carries for 675 yards and five touchdowns on the season. Tony Pollard adds 52 carries for 266 yards and two touchdowns this season. Amari Cooper leads the team with 65 receptions and 713 yards this season.
The Cowboys have had a strong attack offensively of advancing the ball with their variety of threats to work with. Dallas is going to have a challenge here as Washington leads the league in pass defense by allowing only 195.4 yards per contest. Washington is tied for third in NFL with 32 sacks, including six sacks in the first meeting earlier this season.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Cowboys -2.5
I think the Cowboys are the right pick in this game. Washington has not beaten Dallas twice since the 2012 season and I don’t think it’s going to happen this year. Even though the Football Team has been very productive against the pass this season they are still one of the worst teams that are stopping the run this season. They have allowed 1200 yards on the ground for nine touchdowns and 4.3 yards per attempt to opposing this season. Dallas has got to establish the running game early and command a lead so they do not have to rely on Andy passing the ball much. Kyle Allen was the starter for Washington in the first game, so it’ll be interesting to see how Alex Smith does against this revamped Dallas defensive front. Give me the Cowboys at home to get the cover by the skin of their teeth.
