A must win and help needed. That’s the playoff scenario for the Dallas Cowboys entering week 17 of the NFL’s regular season.

Dallas will be using a full roster for this game as they have been all season long. The same cannot be said about Washington, who is battling to win only their fourth game of the year.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Washington has struggled against the Cowboys as of late going 1-4 against the spread in their last five meetings. But, they have played well in Dallas, going 9-3 ATS in their last 12 meetings when the visiting team.

The road team in this series is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 games, while the over is 7-1 in the last eight games in this series.

Believe it or not but Washington is still looking for their first divisional win of the season. They are 0-5 against the NFC East and the only team in the division not to have won a game within it.

The Cowboys are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against teams with a losing record.


Washington received some bad news earlier in the practice week when Head Coach Bill Callahan announced Dwayne Haskins will not play against the Cowboys in week 17. Haskins left last week’s game with an ankle injury, and that same injury will keep him out of the lineup for this final matchup with the Cowboys. Before the injury, Haskins completed 12 of 15 passes for 133 yards and two touchdowns. He finishes his rookie season with a 58.6% completion rate for 1,365 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in seven games.

Expect Case Keenum to start this game with Colt McCoy backing him up.

Dallas Cowboys

Even after their 17-9 loss to the Eagles, the Cowboys can still make the playoffs, but they do not control their own playoff destiny. First, the Cowboys must beat Washington and then hope the Giants can knock off the Eagles.

The Cowboys struggled throughout the game against the Eagles and did not score a touchdown, settling for three Kai Forbath field goals.

Dak Prescott played the entire game but is still nursing a sore shoulder. He is likely to play against Washington, but will not hit the practice field this week. The Cowboys hope he can duplicate his week two performance against Washington where he threw for 269 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-21 win.
