The Dallas Cowboys will take on the Washington Football team his Sunday afternoon in what is a fairly important matchup for both teams at this point in the season. Dallas had a rough stretch of results in November but was able to start December with a win against the New Orleans Saints. Washington is currently riding a four-game win streak against teams the Cowboys lost to earlier in the season. After Dallas’s 6-1 start to the season, now they’re only two games ahead of Washington in the NFC East standings.

Earlier in the week, Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy was quoted saying he expects the team to beat Washington this week. Intentions unclear, Washington head coach Ron Rivera replied to his remarks highlighting that McCarthy would only say such a thing to: motivate a team that is currently lacking a sense of urgency or to provides the team with the false hope that they can beat their opposition.

In all fairness to the former Carolina Panthers head coach, Rivera hasn’t lost to the Dallas Cowboys as head coach of Washington while Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is currently 7-1 against Washington in his career. (Granted, he’s currently 0-0 against the Washington Football Team specifically)

It goes without saying, there is definitely a lot of bragging rights up for grabs this weekend!
