Dallas Cowboys Control Their Own Fate To The Playoffs Against RG3 And Redskins
The Dallas Cowboys control their own fate to the playoffs tonight when they match-up against rookie QB RG3 and the Redskins. Should they win in what will be a tough game on the road for the Cowboys which BetDSI Sportsbook have as a slight dog against the Redskins at home, then Dallas will win the division and be playoff bound.
Last week the Cowboys lost a hard fought shootout 34-31 in Dallas at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. QB Tony Romo played great throwing 26 completions on 43 attempts for 416 yards and an impressive 4 touchdowns, he has really shined the last few games. So hasen’t his best target Dez Bryant who had a ridiculous day against the Saints with 9 catches for 224 yards and two touchdowns including a 58 yard score. The running game still hasn’t found any consistency, against New Orleans DeMarco Murray running just 11 times for 40 yards.
If the Cowboys had shown even a shred of resiliency on defense they would have easily won the game against New Orelans the way their offense was moving. Instead Dallas defense gave up 562 total yards, 116 rushing, and 446 in the air and allowed the Saints to convert on 57% of their third downs.
The Washington Redskins have sealed their playoff spot but seeing they are led by a rookie QB RG3 that is just returning from injury (concussion) it is not outside the realm of possibility that he plays the whole game despite the playoff lock. Griffin has been a tremendous talent at the quarterback position this year and should easily run away with rookie of the year behind his 20 touchdowns to only 5 interceptions, a 104.1 passer rating, and 114 carries for 752 yards and another six scores.
RG3 has also had the help of a really talented rookie running back who has rushed 302 times for 1413 yards and ten touchdowns. The defense however is nothing to write home about with it ranking 22nd in points allowed, 28th in yardage allowed, 30th in passing defense, with the only solid part of the defense being its ability to stuff the run. They only allowe 95.5 yards per a game on the ground, good for fifth in the league.
With the Dallas Cowboys having more on the line than the Redskins and Tony Romo playing great lately, I look for the Boys to pull off a tough win on the road against Washington and their near league worst pass defense. Take the Cowboys with the points or via money line and bank some profits as they fight their way into the playoffs.
