Shane’s Free Pick

The interceptions are a big concern for Sam Howelll, and it’s going to be what hurts him here. The Cowboys have done a good job of creating turnovers, and one of those is probably going to be returned for a touchdown. Prescott is going to have another big game here, and the Commanders just don’t have much of a chance to keep this game close. Back the Cowboys to win this game and cover the spread.
