Washington Commanders 

NFL Team Washington CommandersThe Commanders are looking to rebound from their defeat and cause a divisional upset. They’ve had a tough run, losing four of their last five games and now sit 12th in the NFC playoff picture. The recent loss to the Giants was marked by missed opportunities and costly errors, despite Washington having a 403-292 total offense edge and controlling the clock. Quarterback Sam Howell, who’s been sacked a staggering 51 times this season, threw for 3,038 yards with 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Brian Robinson Jr. has been the primary rusher, while Terry McLaurin leads in receiving. The team’s injury report lists several players as questionable, so bettors should keep an eye out for updates.

Dallas Cowboys

NFL Team Dallas CowboysOn the other side, the Dallas Cowboys are looking to maintain their winning momentum and keep pace in the NFC East race. With two consecutive wins and four victories in their last five games, the Cowboys seem well-positioned to secure another win. They’ve been efficient on both ends of the field, ranking 6th in passing offense and 5th in scoring defense. Dak Prescott has had a solid season, passing for 2,604 yards and 19 touchdowns. Tony Pollard has spearheaded the running game, and CeeDee Lamb has been Prescott’s top target. Dallas’ defense, featuring the formidable Micah Parsons, will pose a significant challenge to the Commanders’ offense.



As for the prediction, given the Commanders’ recent performance and the Cowboys’ defensive prowess, Dallas is favored to secure a victory at home. Washington’s ability to compete may be hindered by their lack of a robust run game and the pressure Dallas’ defense can exert. Expect the Cowboys to leverage their home-field advantage and aim for a comfortable win in this Thanksgiving matchup.
