Dallas Cowboys Vs. Washington Redskins: 7:30 PM CDT, NBC, Live Stream and More
Tonight the Dallas Cowboys host the Washington Redskins in a battle of the NFC East. Both teams desperately need wins and both teams have a history of success against one another. Let’s see what our experts think…
Justin Thomas, Staff Writer, Sport DFW
The Cowboys try right the ship against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night. The Redskins have the worst rushing defense and their pass defense is nothing to brag about. I think the Cowboys Defensive took the Broncos loss personally. Look for the Cowboys defense to have a better game. What concerns me is the long number of plays we are not seeing Demarcus Ware. He is losing effectiveness with his stinger. This could pose a problem if they cannot get any pass rush.
Prediction: Cowboys 33 Redskins 23

Reid Hanson, Editor, Sport DFW
I expect the Cowboys to pick up where they left off both offensively and defensively. The Cowboys offense should come out of the gate quickly using relying primarily on the passing game. Look for Romo and Witten to have big days.
The Cowboys defense will still have issues in the secondary. Unable to disguise coverages and leaving large gaps in the zone defense the Cowboys will allow RGIII to move the ball with his arm. It remains to be seen if Dallas can stop the read option offense so look for the Redskins to test them right away as Dallas plays with 8 in the box.
