The Cowboys are a win away from clinching the NFC East and the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs, all that's in the team's way is the Washington Commanders.

Dallas lost in this same situation last season, but will look to redeem themselves with a resounding win on the road. You can count on CeeDee Lamb to meet his All-Pro standards, but will it be the Cowboys defense that generates enough big plays to keep Washington at bay?

I got three player props for you, but you can find our best bets for this one from our betting expert Iain MacMillian here!

CeeDee Lamb OVER 93.5 Receiving Yards

Lamb has an outside shot at Offensive Player of the Year following 200-plus yards last week against the Cowboys. He is second in the NFL in receiving yards, 66 behind Tyreek Hill, and has a stranglehold on the receptions lead.

I believe that the Cowboys target Lamb early and often in this one against a poor Cowboys secondary that is 31st in EPA/Dropback.

Dallas may not play its starters a full 60 minutes given the result may be in hand early, but I expect Lamb to get his full serving of targets and put together a big game.

Sam Howell OVER 215.5 passing yards

This prop is based around the Commanders being in a negative game script for much of this game, forcing Howell to throw a ton.

In the team's Week 12 blowout loss to Dallas, Howell passed the ball 44 times for 300 yards. While Jacoby Brissett is set to be back on the field this week backing up Howell in case he struggles again, I believe that the Commanders give the young quarterback a longer than expected leash given its Week 18 and losing actually increases the team's chances of getting the No. 2 pick.

Howell hasn't cleared this mark since that Thanksgiving loss, but I'm going to go back over in a likely blowout.
