The Washington Football Team looks to get back on track in Week 16’s rematch vs. the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. After the Cowboys snapped Washington’s four-game winning streak two weeks ago, Washington has now lost two games in a row.
Sunday’s rematch is all about staying in the race for the NFC’s final wild-card spot for Washington. As for Dallas, it can clinch the NFC East with either a win or a Philadelphia loss.
So, both teams have a lot to play for Sunday night at AT&T Stadium.
Unfortunately for Washington, it will be without several key performers. Safety Landon Collins and running back J.D. McKissic were placed on injured reserve last week, while cornerback William Jackson III will miss the game. Washington could also be without All-Pro guard Brandon Scherff and linebacker Cole Holcomb.
The Cowboys jumped out to a 24-0 lead in the first meeting. However, Washington slowly climbed back into the game in the second half before coming up short in a 27-20 loss.
Who wins the rematch?
According to the experts, via NFL Pickwatch, 97% of the picks are for Dallas. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, as Washington has been the underdog for most of its games this season.
Washington’s performance in the first meeting and all the team has lost in recent weeks means the Cowboys are the smart choice for Week 16.
