Dallas-Washington won’t have a horse on the field — or fans in the stands — this time, but it could go a long way to determining which team wins a bad division. The Cowboys (2-4) and now nick-nameless Washington (1-5) are in the thick of the race, even though each team has a different starting quarterback than it began the season with. Dak Prescott’s broken ankle forced Andy Dalton into action for Dallas under first-year coach Mike McCarthy.
It’s time for a classic NFL matchup. Two of the league’s biggest rivals will meet Sunday at Fed Ex Field in the early afternoon. It’s the burgundy and gold against the blue and silver.
Ezekiel Elliott better have strong shoulders, because the Dallas Cowboys' 2020 season outcome is resting firmly on his back. He'll also need to find a better grip on the football. Dallas is leading the terrible NFC East, but now Dak Prescott is out for the year.
