Washington Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys Prediction and Preview

Week 17 of the NFL regular season has finally arrived. Included in the final slate of games is an NFC East matchup between Dallas and Washington. The Cowboys (7-8) are battling the Eagles (8-7) for the division title, needing a win over the Redskins (3-12) and for Philadelphia to lose to the Giants (4-11) to get into the playoffs.

Dallas is just 4-3 at home this season but does already have a victory over Washington, beating the Redskins 31-21 on the road back in Week 2. Much has changed since then, however. Regardless of the outcome, changes are definitely coming for the Redskins this offseason, and the same is probably true for the Cowboys too.

Washington at Dallas

Kickoff: Sunday, Dec. 29 at 4:25 p.m. ET

TV: FOX

Spread: Cowboys -10.5

Three Things to Watch

1. Case Keenum back in the starting lineup

Rookie first-round pick Dwayne Haskins has proven that he’s the future at the quarterback position for the Redskins. But unfortunately for him and the team, he won’t be suiting up against the Cowboys on Sunday due to an ankle injury.
