Cowboys set for crucial tilt in DC
By Harry Hodge
One of the oldest rivalries in the National Football League could set the tone for the playoff aspirations of two of sports’ most storied franchises. The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins both sit at 3-3 in the standings, with the season nearing the halfway mark. A win over a division rival will be crucial in a division with the Philadelphia Eagles also playing well of late.
Kirk Cousins has been the man in DC, passing for over 1,600 yards so far and 12 touchdowns, with a potent receiving corps of Chris Thompson, Terrelle Pryor and Vernon Davis.
The Cowboys have had an up-and-down start to the year, especially with Ezekiel Elliott’s legal woes hanging over him. This hasn’t stopped him from shredding opposing defences, with more than 700 all-purpose yards to his credit, including a dazzling 72-yard catch-and-run against the Niners last week.
Dak Prescott is on pace to throw more than 30 touchdowns on the year, with weapons like Dez Bryant and the ageless Jason Witten at his disposal.
