The NFC East kicks things off in Week 13, with the Dallas Cowboys hosting Washington on Thursday Night Football. The game kicks off at 5:30 p.m. PT on NBC, with Mike Tirico, Cris Collinsworth, and Heather Cox on the broadcast.
Washington and Dallas were expected to contend in the NFC East, but both have had their share of issues this season. Dallas is without running back Ezekiel Elliott, and the offensive line has had some inconsistency we did not see last year. Washington is getting solid play from Kirk Cousins, but he is losing skill position players left and right, and the offensive line has been a problem.
Both teams are 5-6, well behind the Philadelphia Eagles, who have already clinched no worse than a tie for the division. A Cowboys loss will lock up the division for Philadelphia due to various tiebreakers. The Cowboys are a 1.5-point underdog in this one, but I’m thinking we see the outright upset.
