There is no Thanksgiving without Dallas Cowboys football. There is always a Cowboy game during the Thanksgiving football special and this year is not an exception. This time, we will get the chance to watch one of the most heated rivalries in the NFL as Redskins are traveling to Texas to meet their divisional foe.
Cowboys playing against the Redskins is as big of a game as there is in the NFL. It’s always tight, and it’s always more than a match in which the team gets a win. It’s a duel after which the winner gets the bragging rights.
Dallas Cowboys are the winners of nine straight games. First of their nine consecutive wins came against the Redskins in Week 2 when they stole the game from FedEx Field in Washington. They are a much better team now than they were then and it’s going to be even harder for the Washington to get the job done in Arlington.
Dallas’ defense is improved, but they struggled a bit against some good offensive teams. Kirk Cousins is a gun-slinger and is going to make some big-time plays just like he has done all season long. He is also bound to make some mistakes, but there are matches in which we see much more of Kirk’s good side.
That side needs to show up in Dallas if Washington wants to win this game. They will also have to stop Ezekiel Elliot and Dallas’ running game in order to get the job done on the road.
Dallas is favored to win this duel, and we think they will succeed and get their 10th straight victory. It’s going to be a high-scoring and highly entertaining game that will end with Prescott’s TD pass and Dallas will escape with a 34:27 win against their divisional rivals.
