Dallas hoped they would be in the hunt coming into MNF week 13, but they're without Tony Romo again & they're now 3-8. Washington is 5-6 & they might be in the driver's seat in the NFC East.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -4 -105 at Pinnacle
The Redskins opened up as 4-point favorites at home and the NFL odds have moved to -4.5, but it could go up more. The Cowboys haven't played since a 33-14 rout at the hands of Carolina at home on Thanksgiving, and Romo was playing terribly before he got hurt. The Redskins pulled off a massive 20-14 win at home against the New York Giants, and they now lead the NFC East due to that win over the Giants, who are also 5-6. All is not completely lost for the Cowboys, who are still only two games out of the lead in the East, but they had so many problems moving the ball without Romo that it probably hasn't gotten much better.  Washington's defense is only 20th in points allowed and 22nd in yards allowed, but they did extremely well against a Giants offense that is one of the most explosive in the league. That doesn't bode well for the Cowboys.

Injuries
The Cowboys won't put Romo on injured reserve with another broken collarbone, just in case they make it to the playoffs. That is a lot to ask from Romo, especially at 35 and it isn't even a guarantee that he'll be ready if they do make it. DE Ryan Russell is out for the season with an abdominal injury.

The Redskins had a few players not practicing on Monday, starting with WR Andre Roberts because of his ankle and knee. He has been out for a few weeks now and the Redskins would love to give QB Kirk Cousins another weapon. TE Derek Carrier didn't practice due to his Achilles, while DE Jason Hatcher and S Dashon Goldson also sat out. However, Hatcher doesn't usually practice until Friday, while Goldson was given a day off.

 

Trends
Dallas comes into this game at 3-8 ATS, going 2-3 ATS on the road, while Washington is 5-6 ATS and 4-2 ATS at home. The total comes in at 42, and both teams have gone under six times.

The Cowboys are 6-4 SU and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 meetings with the Redskins, who are 5-5 SU and 7-3 ATS in 10 home games with Dallas.
