Fans are making their NFL Week 7 picks, and by a small majority, the money is behind the Washington Redskins beating the Dallas Cowboys as far as the books go. NFL experts have made their Week 7 picks, and also by a slim amount, the majority is with the Dallas Cowboys losing to the Washington Redskins. On Sunday, the 3-3 Cowboys will hit the road to FedEx Field to face the 3-2 Redskins in an NFC East division rivalry game.
The last times these two teams met was just under a year ago in November of 2017, and Dallas beat Washington 38-14 in a very convincing victory. The Cowboys have gotten the W over the Redskins four games in a row. However, with a new defense, signal caller, and with acquiring future NFL Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson, Washington is a different team than they were last year. Including two postseason games, these two teams have played each other a total of 116 times in NFL history, and the Cowboys lead the Redskins 70-44-2.
Jamison Crowder has been ruled out of Washington due to an ankle injury and Chris Thompson is not expected to play because of his rib and knee issues. The Redskins have two players listed as doubtful: Troy Apke (hamstring) and Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee). Once again, Adrian Peterson is listed as questionable, though he is reportedly healthier than he was in his last showing. No players have been ruled as doubtful for Dallas, but the Cowboys do have two players out: Tavon Austin (groin) and Joe Thomas (foot). In addition, wide receiver Terrance Williams has been suspended for three games for substance abuse, as ESPN documented.
