In their last four games, the Cowboys cannot lose to the Redskins. There have been blowouts and there have been nailbiters, but all with the same result, a Dallas win.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott has never lost to the Redskins, and neither has running back Ezekiel Elliott. Embattled Dallas head coach Jason Garrett holds a 6-2 record against Redskins head coach Jay Gruden.
Despite all that, two 2018 stats might matter the most when the two teams play on Sunday in D.C.
At 0-3, the Cowboys are yet to win on the road this season, and Washington is 2-1 so far this year at FedEx field.
In three road games so far this season, Dallas is averaging just more than 12 points-per-game.
Further, Dallas takes care of the ball when playing at home. They've committed zero turnovers at Jerry World, er, AT&T Stadium.
On the road, the Cowboys average two turnovers-per-game.
The key to the Redskins victory last week over Carolina was generating three turnovers, and Washington will look to do the same this week.
In fact, there are other similarities between the Redskins Week 6 matchup with the Panthers and the Week 7 game against the Cowboys. Going into the Carolina contest, Cam Newton had never lost to Washington and the Panthers held a long win streak against the ‘Skins dating back to 2006.
With strong run defense and creating turnovers, the Redskins snapped that streak. Washington held the top-ranked run game in the NFL to almost half of their weekly total, and nearly eliminated RB Christian McCaffrey from the gameplan.
Maybe the same happens on Sunday against Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys.
