The Skins are a hot ticket against a Dallas squad in full collapse mode for Week 13 TNF!
The public has jumped ship on DAL with 3-straight losses, no Zeke and no Sean Lee. But falling in love with QB Cousins on the road in a big game is risky business.
Washington’s D-Line can’t stop the run and RB Morris and Dak will have to make things happen behind that big O-Line. We need big games from Witten and Dez, too, and it will come down to game script (something DAL has been bad at lately), but their losses haven’t exactly come against chopped liver.
Dallas losses were against the Chargers, Eagles, and Falcons.
Washington’s win last week was over the Giants. Yeah, the ones who just benched Eli Manning.
Special teams advantage goes to DAL and while both of these teams can play disciplined football, I’ll give the advantage there to DAL for being at home.
I think the variables for this game could come down to WSH O-Line — where 4 of 5 starters are listed as questionable — and Dallas D. Their LB corps is in rough shape but if the D-Line can get pressure it will be up to the secondary to force some turnovers.
Revenge is another thing to consider but road teams off a home win seeking revenge from an earlier season loss are just 4-10 ATS against slumping teams like Dallas. Get a look at that list with this SDQL code from SportsDatabase.com.
SDQL: A and p:HW and DIV and o:streak < -1 and P:L and season = P:season and -3 < line <= 3
It’s just a bear and pizza play but take Dallas to cover.
