Oddsmakers currently have the WASHINGTON listed as -2 point favorites versus the DALLAS, while the game’s total is sitting at 41.
The Dallas Cowboys attempt to break their cycle of alternating wins and losses this season and continue their recent dominance in the all-time series when they visit the NFC East-rival Washington Redskins on Sunday. Dallas is looking to post consecutive victories for the first time in 2018 after trouncing Jacksonville 40-7 last week.
The Cowboys, who have won four straight meetings with the Redskins and eight of the last 10, are winless on the road this season but have been victorious in each of their last five visits to the nation’s capital. Washington is in the same position as its bitter rival, looking to snap an identical trend and record back-to-back triumphs for the first time this year after defeating Carolina 23-17 in Week 6. The Redskins sit atop the NFC East, one-half game ahead of both Dallas and Philadelphia, but will be playing their first divisional contest of the season. Washington has not been two games over .500 since owning an 8-6-1 record in 2016 and has gone 1-7 in its last eight contests following a victory.

ABOUT THE COWBOYS (3-3): Dak Prescott is tied with Jack Kemp for the fourth-most games with at least one passing and one rushing touchdown in his first three seasons with nine after throwing two and running for another against Jacksonville. The 25-year-old, who rushed for a career-high 82 yards last week, is one away from tying Mark Sanchez and two shy of matching Steve Grogan for second. Ezekiel Elliott, who leads the NFL with 3,200 rushing yards since 2016, ranks second in the league this year with 586 and is third in scrimmage yards with 752.
ABOUT THE REDSKINS (3-2): Adrian Peterson has gained 217 of his 339 rushing yards this season in his last two home games. The former league MVP hasn’t faced the Cowboys since Nov. 3, 2013 while with Minnesota but has rushed for a touchdown in each of his last three meetings against the club. Alex Smith, who has been sacked three times in four of his five games – fumbling in each of those contests – has thrown four of his six scoring passes this season at home.
1. Elliott has registered 361 yards from scrimmage and five rushing touchdowns in three career meetings versus the Redskins.
2. Washington released DL Ziggy Hood and promoted WR Jehu Chesson from the practice squad.
3. Dallas WR Terrance Williams (foot), who is on injured reserve, was handed a three-game suspension by the NFL on Thursday for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
PREDICTION: Cowboys 31, Redskins 24
