One of the biggest rivalries in the NFL will play out on NFL Monday Night Football when the Dallas Cowboys visit NFC East rivals the Washington Redskins, with playoff implications for each team in this matchup..
There are few teams in the NFL with a wider disparity in performance between game played at home and those on the road than Washington. The Redskins hope to extend their lead in the division with a win at home against Dallas.
Washington is riding a five-game winning streak at home after beating the New York Giants last weekend 20-14. The Redskins lead the Giants in the division as New York lost to the Jets on Sunday and can extend that lead with a victory over the Cowboys Monday night.
With a win Monday night, Dallas would still have a chance to win the division title, as they are only two games back even though they have lost 8 of their 11 games this season. However, Tony Romo was lost last week for the remainder of the season after reinjuring his collarbone.
Matt Cassel will take Romo’s place under center. The Cowboys this season are 0-7 when a backup quarterback starts. Cassel started 4 of the games Romo missed earlier in the season. Dallas needs to establish a running attack or else the Washington defense will just play pass and pressure Cassel.
During the home winning streak, Kirk Cousins the Washington starting quarterback has 10 touchdown passes and no interceptions.
