With their win on Saturday night over the Eagles the Redskins clinched the NFC East crown and will be in the post-season for the first time since 2012.
This game does not mean anything to them in terms of the standings, but any game against the rival Cowboys is a big one and this is especially the case since Washington lost at home to Dallas a few weeks ago.
Earlier this season in Washington the Cowboys beat the Redskins 19-16.
The Cowboys have lost 3 in a row while the Redskins have won 3 straight.
In their last games the Redskins beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-24 and the Cowboys lost to the Buffalo Bills 16-6.
On the season the Cowboys are 1-6 at home and the Redskins are 2-5.
The Redskins were 0-5 on the road this season, but they have won their last 2 games away from the Nation’s Capital.
Kirk Cousins has been en fuego as of late and in the win over Philly he passed for a season high 365 yards with 0 INT. He has a great set of targets in Jordan Reed,
Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson and in Cousins last 2 games he has nearly 700 yards passing with 8 TD and 0 INT.
While Dallas has had their issues on the season, mainly at the QB position, their pass D has been solid on the season ranking 5th in the league.
The Redskins have not had a great rushing attack this season and Alfred Morris has been up and down and in the Eagles game he struggled. He will be facing a Dallas run defense that has been the weakness on that side of the ball ranking 22nd in the league.
The Redskins have lost 7 of their last 10 games facing the Cowboys.
The main reason that the Cowboys only have 4 wins is they have been without Tony Romo for most of the season and the backups have not gotten it done.
They have used 4 different starting QB’s this season and last week Kellen Moore was only 13/31 for 186 yards with 0 TD and 1 INT. He should get the start again and while he has some solid targets the key for Dallas winning this game may be running the ball.
Darren McFadden ranks 5th in the league in rushing yards and he has been playing well as of late with 310 rushing yards in the last 3 games.
Washington’s defense has been bailed out by Cousins and the offense this season and they rank 22nd in the league defending the pass and 26th defending the run.
The Cowboys have lost their last 5 home games.

NFL Free Score Prediction: Washington 31 – Cowboys 24
Not sure how long Cousins will play in this game since it does not mean anything, but they will still move the ball on offense and get their 4th straight win by beating the Dallas ending their very disappointing season.
