The Redskins (6-3-1) head to Dallas on Thanksgiving to take on the Cowboys (9-1) in a pivotal rivalry game on Thursday afternoon.
The Cowboys beat the Redskins 27-23 in Week 2, the first of Dallas' nine consecutive victories.
But since Week 2, the Redskins are 6-1-1 and are coming off their best performance of the season, a Sunday Night Football drubbing of the Green Bay Packers.
The Cowboys are -6.5 favorites to beat the Redskins on Thursday, and are 9-0-1 ATS this season. But the Redskins are clicking on all cylinders, which means anything goes when the bitter rivals take the field.

That being said, the analysts at the NFL Network don't like the Redskins' chances. On their Thursday morning pregame show, analyst Steve Mariucci gave the Cowboys the advantage in every category: quarterback, receivers, running backs and defense.
The running back position is not up for debate. While Robert Kelley has done a solid job solidifying the ground game, Ezekiel Elliott is one of —if not the — best running backs in the NFL and is almost a lock to win the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.
The only person who could dethrone him from that is his teammate, quarterback Dak Prescott. But is Prescott playing better than Kirk Cousins? It's hard to give the edge to either team given they are being asked to do different things. The jury is out on that.
Cole Beasley has emerged as a strong threat in the passing game for Dallas and a healthy Dez Bryant is a dangerous weapon, but it's hard to go against the Redskins' receiving corps. Jamison Crowder is having a sensational season, and Pierre Garcon is as reliable as ever. Add in a healthy DeSean Jackson and physical freak Jordan Reed and there just aren't many teams with a more talented passing attack than that.
The Redskins' defense certainly isn't great, but it's much improved. Dallas' defense is probably a bit better, but not by much.
Needless to say, the tale of the tape should still lean in the Cowboys' favor, but not 4-0.
It won't be too long before we find out whether or not the NFL Network was right or wrong.
