On Thursday night, the Washington Redskins faces the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday Night Football. The will kick off at 8:25 pm on NBC.

Both teams come into this contest with a 5-6 record. The Cowboys have lost three straight games since Ezekiel Elliott withdrew his six-game suspension appeal for violation the league’s personal conduct policy.Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins (Getty Images)

The Redskins are coming into this contest following a 20-10 win over the woeful New York Giants on Thanksgiving night.

Dallas are 2-4 at Jerry’s World this season. The Redskins are 3-3 on the road this season.

The Redskins have a 65% chance of winning in their public poll. Their expert poll; however, says the Cowboys have a 58% chance of winning the game.

Washington is averaging 23.5 points per game. Dallas is just below them with 22.5 points per game.

The Cowboys have won the past three meetings between these two teams in this rivalry. However, since Elliott went out of the lineup, the Cowboys offense has been hideous.

They only have one offensive touchdown, which was scored against the Atlanta Falcons three weeks ago. Since then, in the past two games, the team has had to rely on Mike Nugent’s foot, as he has made six field goals.

The Redskins have not won a game in this rivalry since September 18th, 2016. In that game, they won 34-23.

In the past 10 meetings, Dallas holds a 7-3 advantage. To take advantage of Dallas’s fine form and understand more on how backing them works, Sports Betting Dime’s NFL section has money-line breakdowns and upcoming games featured here.

The Redskins are coming into this game with a one-game-win streak, as we documented above. They lost to the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints in their prior two games before the win over the Giants.

As we previously mentioned, the Cowboys have lost three straight games. They have not won a game since November 12th when they defeated the Kansas City Chiefs, a 28-17 win with Elliott in the lineup.

Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has gone 249 of 376 for 3,038 passing yards. He has 19 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Samaje Perine, a rookie, has 113 carries for 427 rushing yards and a touchdown. Jamison Crowder has 46 receptions for 561 yards and a touchdown.
