Jerry World has Been More Like Scary World Since Zeke’s Departure

Things are getting dire for the Cowboys and Redskins. They both sit one game below .500 in a division that’s all but locked up by the 10-1 Philadelphia Eagles and it’s looking like it’s going to take at least 10 wins to earn one of the NFC’s wild-card spots, making Thursday’s matchup a virtual must-win.

  • The Redskins are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 road games against the Cowboys.
  • The Cowboys are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 divisional home games.
  • The Redskins have posted OVERs in 7 straight divisional road games.

With that said, can the Cowboys win? They opened as a 2.5-point favorite but early money has pushed that line closer to EVEN and I’m a little surprised they’re still laying points at all.

Dallas has been a different, much worse team since the Ezekiel Elliott suspension became official. They’ve been outscored by 70 points in the three games without him and it’s irrational to think they’ll be much better on Thursday.

They’ll still be without Sean Lee in the middle and because of that, the Cowboys will not be able to stop a Redskins offense that has been clicking ever since Jamison Crowder pulled his head out of the sand. He’s been targeted 42 times the last four games, catching 27 of those for 412 yards, and in that span the Redskins are seventh in yards per game.

Crowder plays a very similar game to that of Keenan Allen, a slot receiver who just torched Dallas for 172 yards, and when the D.C. pass-catcher last faced the Cowboys, he reeled in nine passes for 123 yards.

If he does that again and is complemented by another solid performance from running back Samaje Perine, the Redskins are winning and covering this football game easily.
