Week 13 of the 2015 NFL season wraps up on Monday evening as Washington hosts the Dallas Cowboys in a big NFC East matchup on Monday Night Football. The game kicks off at 5:30 p.m. PT, and airs on ESPN. Jon Gruden, Mike Tirico, and Lisa Salters have the call. If you aren't in front of a television, you can watch the game on WatchESPN.
This is a noteworthy game for 49ers fans due to draft order. The 49ers win dropped them a couple spots in the 2016 NFL Draft order, but a Cowboys win would help the 49ers. Dallas is 3-8, and a win would improve them to 4-8, with a strength of schedule currently higher than that of the 49ers. It looks like a Cowboys win would drop their strength of schedule into a tie with the 49ers and Lions at .526.
This game is also a big deal for the ugly NFC East. Washington currently leads the division with a 5-6 record. If they win, they take a one-game lead on the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. If they lose, they drop into a tie with the Giants and Eagles, and the Cowboys would only be a game back of the three teams. It's kind of crazy how mediocre the NFC East is.
