The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins are bitter NFC East rivals and are set to face off this week. What better way for football fans to enjoy Thanksgiving Day than watching two enemies fight it out on the gridiron?
Dak Prescott and the Cowboys have won nine straight games and are the best team in the NFL at this point in the season at 9-1. They still have a long way to go, but they look to be a complete football team. Ezekiel Elliott’s star-studded running and the improved defense has made the Cowboys a Super Bowl favorite.
Kirk Cousins and the Redskins, on the other hand, are finding their groove. After destroying the Green Bay Packers in Week 11, Washington has their sights set on snapping their arch rivals’ winning streak. It won’t be easy, but the Redskins have the talent necessary to give the Cowboys some trouble.
These two teams are going to put on a show for all football fans. Even if you don’t like one of these two teams, this is going to be a must-watch game. It wouldn’t be surprising to see these two teams take their battle to the last drive of regulation or even into overtime.
All of that being said, what bold predictions can be made for the Cowboys vs. Redskins game in NFL Week 12 action?
Ezekiel Elliott Rushes for 110 Yards, Two Touchdowns
If the Cowboys want to win their 10th straight game, Ezekiel Elliott is going to have to be a big part of their offensive game plan. He is viewed as the best running back in the NFL by many, although some still think Le’Veon Bell is the best. Elliott will be a dominating force for Dallas against the Redskins, breaking out for 110 yards and two touchdowns in the game.
Kirk Cousins Rips the Dallas Secondary for 300 Yards, Three Touchdowns
There is no denying the fact that Kirk Cousins has earned himself a lot of money this season. He will continue doing so this week against the Cowboys. Cousins will rip the Dallas secondary for 300 yards and three touchdowns and will give his team a fighting chance to come through with a huge win.
Dak Prescott Totals 275 Yards, Two Touchdowns, No Turnovers
One of the most impressive aspects of Dak Prescott’s game has been his lack of turnovers. He will continue that trend this week with 275 yards, two touchdowns, and no turnovers. Prescott has taken over the starting spot convincingly from Tony Romo and will not look back anytime soon.
Robert Kelley Racks Up 100 Yards, Touchdown
Washington has been pleasantly surprised by rookie running back Robert Kelley. Last week against the Packers, Kelley ended up carrying the football 24 times for 137 yards and three touchdowns. He won’t do that much against a tough Dallas defense, but he will rack up 100 yards and a touchdown.
Dallas Continues Their Streak to 10 Straight Wins
While the Redskins are going to put up a tough fight, the Cowboys will win their 10th straight game. Prescott and Elliott will be too much for the Washington defense to handle, and Cousins won’t be able to outscore them. Dallas will win a hard fought game and improve to 10-1 on the season, while the Redskins will drop to 6-4-1.
Expect to see this NFC East rivalry live up to the hype that it is receiving. Both of these teams are playing at a very high level. Dallas and Washington will not disappoint the viewers on Thanksgiving afternoon.
