NFL Betting Lines: Washington -3
Cowboys vs. Redskins On TV: NBC
The last game of the regular season is going to be a do or die situation for both the Cowboys and the Redskins. The winner will be in the playoffs as the No. 4 seed in the NFC as the NFC East champs, while the loser will almost certainly be going home. The Skins have covered five in a row in this series dating back to the start of the 2010 season, including winning 38-31 in Arlington on Thanksgiving Day in a real bust out game for QB Robert Griffin III. There’s just a point that Washington has to crash back to earth, though, and that point has to be coming soon. QB Tony Romo and the offense have played exceptionally well over the course of the last few weeks, and in spite of the fact that last week’s game against the Saints was ultimately lost at home in overtime, we still think that this is a game that Romo can win. It will be a revitalizing game for the Dallas franchise, and it will be the one that ultimately gives Head Coach Jason Garrett a free pass into next season as the team’s head coach. There is nothing to be ashamed of if you’re the Redskins this year, knowing that they really came out of their bye week with their heads held high against some of the best that the NFL has to offer, but it just isn’t going to happen when push comes to shove.
Cowboys @ Redskins Pick: Dallas Cowboys +3
Dallas @ Washington Score Prediction: Dallas 27 – Washington 21
