The Washington Football Team face the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday, November 26th at AT&T Stadium for an NFL Week 12 NFC East matchup.
The tradition of the Dallas Cowboys hosting an afternoon Thanksgiving game continues this season. This year's matchup features the Washington Football Team in a game that could have serious playoff implications in the NFC East standings.
The Washington Football Team is coming off a 20-9 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11 at home. Washington is now 3-7 on the year, which puts it in a three-way tie for second place in the NFC East with the Giants and Cowboys. Washington snapped a two-game skid with the win over Cincy, a victory that was also the team's first against a non-divisional opponent. Washington scores 20.0 points per game on 345.8 total yards of offense per contest. Washington may not be sharp on offense, but the defense has been a different story. Washington only allows 22.7 points per game, which is above the league's average in terms of total defense. Washington is 0-4 away from home so far this season, so the Football Team will look to find its first road win of the season in one of its most important contests.
The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a big-time upset win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11. Andy Dalton and the Cowboys went toe-to-toe with Dalvin Cook and Kirk Cousins of the Vikings on offense, winning the game 31-28 on the road. With the win, the Cowboys are now back into a playoff hunt, which many did not think was possible when Dak Prescott was ruled out for the season. The Cowboys score 23.5 points per game on 415.4 total yards of offense per contest. The Cowboy's offense took a big hit when Prescott got injured, but a promising performance by Andy Dalton may lead to a resurgence for this Cowboys offense. Dallas allows 31.8 points per game to its opposition, which is well below the league's average. The Cowboys will have to be stronger on the defensive side of the ball if they want to earn back-to-back wins and even the season series with Washington on Thanksgiving.
The Cowboys open as 3-point favorites and the total is set at 46.5. I like the Washington Football Team to win this game outright on the road, therefore taking Washington and the points is the play here. Washington's defense should be able to keep Zeke and company off of the scoreboard more often than not.
