Cowboys vs. Washington Football Team: Live score, updates, highlights from Thanksgiving game

Even though it’s a matchup between two teams with losing records, the division lead in the NFC East is up for grabs when the Cowboys play the Washington Football Team on Thanksgiving.

Dallas (3-7) and Washington (3-7) both enter the game tied along with the Giants for second in the division, half a game behind the Eagles. Yes, the NFC East has been a dumpster fire this season, but someone has to come out of the division to make the playoffs, and it could very well be one of these two teams.

The Cowboys looked strong coming into the year but have struggled in the wake of Dak Prescott’s season-ending ankle injury back in Week 5. Andy Dalton will get the start at QB on Thanksgiving, which should be a welcome sight for Dallas’ offense after having Ben DiNucci and Garrett Gilbert start the last couple of games. Dalton’s return from a concussion should provide a bigger threat in the passing game and open up running lanes for Ezekiel Elliott, who has struggled to find consistency without Prescott.

Washington’s offense will be led by Alex Smith, who is a strong candidate for comeback player of the year after returning from a broken leg injury suffered back in 2018. Washington has looked much better since Smith’s return and picked up a win last week over the Bengals.
