3. Will the Dallas Cowboys feast on Thanksgiving?

The Dallas Cowboys are rounding the corner. Nothing is certain in the NFL, but it seems this collection of players are responding to head coach Mike McCarthy. This is all strange to me; a few weeks ago I inked that this team is done for.

Now, the Cowboys enter the turkey contest with a lot of meat to bite for. No team in the NFC East is beyond three wins, which yes, is sad when you think about it. But let’s bypass that for a second.

Do you want to know if I think the Dallas Cowboys will topple the Washington Football Team on the national stage? Here goes. I’m telling you to eat all the turkey and sides you want on Thursday because the Dallas Cowboys won’t make you vomit.

Remember, this is a revenge game of sorts. The last time the Cowboys met Washington was on a rainy Sunday. Dalton got knocked out on a senseless play while his neighbors practically checked their tweets and their Instagram feed.

Yes, that was embarrassing to witness. Nobody cared then. But this isn’t the same Dallas Cowboys, and I expect them to prove that come Thursday.

Dalton will aim for another solid game, offering a couple of touchdowns in the air. The offensive line will hold up again, giving Zeke clearance in the pocket to find holes. CeeDee Lamb posts two touchdown catches. The defense wrecks havoc on Smith, who coughs up the ball on the turf and commits an interception or two.

The game starts slow, with a halftime score of 10-3, Dallas. From there, the Cowboys drive on the ground with Elliott and Pollard at the helm. The Dallas Cowboys experience no lead changes, winning handily.

Give me Dallas Cowboys 27, Washington Football Team 17. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
