Washington Football Team @ Dallas Cowboys:

This is a battle for first place in the NFC East! After a solid performance last week versus the Minnesota Vikings, the Cowboys will look to stay hot against the WFT.

Washington destroyed Dallas back in Week 7, 25-3, and have won just one game since, that being last week versus the Cinncinati Bengals.

Both of these teams have struggled in their own right; however, there are also some bright spots on both teams. The Washington pass rush is elite, led by rookie Chase Young. The Cowboys wide receiver corps is the deepest in the league and has been trouble for opposing secondaries all season.

The Cowboys are the -3 betting favorite for this one, and the point total is set at 46.

The public is slightly backing the Cowboys (57% ATS) and the over (59%). This game is set to get going at 2:30p MST.
