NFL Week 12: Washington Commanders vs Dallas Cowboys Odds, and Picks (Nov 23)
- The Commanders suffered a shock 31-19 loss to the Giants in week 11.
- The Cowboys overcame the Panthers 33-10 on Sunday.
- These two teams will meet again in week 18.
The 4-7 Washington Commanders take on the 7-3 Dallas Cowboys in this NFC East divisional matchup. The Cowboys look the most likely challengers to first placed Philadelphia with the Commanders having lost back-to-back games to slip out of contention.
How To Watch
It was a tough week for the Commanders, as they lost 31-19 to the Giants in week 11. Although the defense managed to sack New York’s rookie QB, Tommy DeVito, nine times, the offense let them down. QB Sam Howell completed 31 out of 45 passes for 255 yards and a touchdown, but his three interceptions played a significant role in the defeat. Washington’s schedule doesn’t get any easier, as they face Dallas and Miami before their week 14 bye.
The Cowboys had a comfortable victory over the Panthers on Sunday, winning 33-10. Running back Tony Pollard took advantage of the weak Panther’s run defense, rushing 12 times for 61 yards and scoring his first touchdown since week one of the season. The defense was in top form, recording seven sacks, forcing a fumble with recovery, and scoring a defensive touchdown with an interception. Although star receiver Ceedee Lamb is listed as limited with an ankle injury, he is expected to play in Thursday’s game.
The defense of Dallas is exceptional, while that of Washington is one of the weakest in the league. It will be an exciting match, with the Commanders putting up a good fight. However, I anticipate that Dallas will win by at least a couple of scores.
