This is a tale of two teams heading in opposite directions. Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys have not scored more than nine points in each of the last three games - all losses. Meanwhile, the Washington Redskins are beating teams they should and losing close, high scoring games against premier NFC playoff contenders.
At 5-6, the team that wins this game keeps their playoff hopes alive in a very strong NFC this year. The Redskins have the best chance here as they have a very soft schedule with the Chargers, Cardinals, Broncos, and Giants down the stretch. If they win out, they could find themselves in play for a Wild Card.
The Cowboys will likely limp along until Ezekiel Elliot returns and by then it should be too late for them.
