WFT vs Cowboys Vegas Odds

Game Preview

Washington Desperate for a Win

The WFT lost their previous two games, both of which they played against their divisional rivals. First, they lost to the Cowboys, then, they lost to the Eagles. As a result, Washington no longer has a chance to win the NFC East. However, this team still has a chance to get to the postseason through Wild Card.

With a 6-8 record, the WFT are in the #10 position in the NFC Rankings, which isn’t good enough for the playoffs. However, they can easily climb a few spots above if they win a few games in the remainder of the season.

The three games they have to play are all against their NFC East rivals. After the Week 16 clash with the cowboys, they play against the Eagles at home before traveling to East Rutherford to play against the New York Giants.

It’s not going to be easy, but they do have a chance to get to the postseason for the first time since the 2015 season. The reason why it won’t be easy is that they have a sort of a COVID-19 crisis in the squad.

The biggest problem is that their quarterbacks Taylor Heinicke and Kyle Allen remain in isolation and it’s not sure whether they’ll be cleared by Sunday.

Further, the WFT also have problems with injuries, with wide receivers J.D. McKissic and Curtis Samuel doubtful for the Week 16 clash.

The Cowboys Want to Win the NFC East at Home

With a 10-4 record, the Cowboys are just one step away from clinching the NFC East title. If they win in Week 16, no one will be able to take the division from them.

Can they win? Sure, they can! Their impressive record didn’t happen by chance. Plus, they’ve been playing terrific football over the course of the past couple of weeks. The Cowboys are coming into Week 16 after three straight wins.

Further, they’re going to have tens of thousands of their fans to cheer them on, which wasn’t the case the last time they welcomed the WFT. It happened last November when only a limited number of spectators was allowed at AT&T Stadium.

Washington won that game, but before that, the hosts beat them in the four previous games played in Texas.
