Offensively, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is having another strong season, completing 365-of-563 passes for 4,599 yards and 26 touchdowns. Against the Redskins in Washington earlier in the year, Prescott completed 26-of-30 passes for 269 yards and three TDs. He has thrown for 300 or more yards in six games this season.
But just because Dallas has had Washington’s number over the years does not guarantee it will cover the Cowboys vs. Redskins spread on Sunday.
That’s because Washington would like nothing better than to put an end to any hopes Dallas has of making the postseason. Starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins (ankle) has been ruled out and the Redskins will turn to former starter Case Keenum. In nine games this season, Keenum has thrown for 1,501 yards and 10 touchdowns.
Washington’s ground attack is led by running back Adrian Peterson, who leads the team in rushing with 820 yards on 198 carries. He’s also scored five touchdowns. Peterson has rushed for more than 100 yards in two games this season, including 118 at Miami and 108 at Buffalo.
