The Dallas Cowboys will host the Washington Commanders on Thanksgiving Day in an NFL Week 12 showdown in the NFC East.

The Cowboys are still in the hunt for the NFC East title so a win against the Commanders is going to be pivotal on that journey. Meanwhile, if the Commanders aren't able to upset the Cowboys, their playoff hopes will be all but dead.

In this article, I'm going to attempt the impossible and predict the exact final score of the game. Let's dive into it.

Commanders vs. Cowboys odds, spread, and total

Cowboys exact score prediction

If you read my betting preview, you know I like the Cowboys to run away with this game. Their offense is going to be too much for the Commanders' defense to handle and the Washington offensive line is going to be eaten up by the Dallas pass rush.

So, knowing that I think the Cowboys will win by double-digits, the next question to answer regards the total.

The Cowboys' defense does have some issues that Washington could exploit to at least score a couple of times in this game. For example, the Cowboys' defense ranks 31st in the league in opponent rush success rate, so the Commanders may be able to run the ball. Washington's wide receiver depth can also cause some issues for any defense in the NFL.

So, the Commanders may not score a ton, but i think they'll be able to find the end zone a couple of times to contribute to the total.

Final score prediction: Commanders 17, Cowboys 34
