OUR PREDICTION: The Cowboys have struggled on Thanksgiving over the past two seasons but the Redskins are about to deal with a different animal. Last week the Cowboys were held somewhat in check on the ground by the Ravens, who own the No. 1 run defense in the league. But in the fourth quarter when Baltimore's defense started to tire out, Dallas was able to sustain long drives to pull away. Today against the Redskins, the Cowboys can run right down Washington's throats and keep Kirk Cousins on the sidelines. (This is also a tough spot for the Redskins, who played on Sunday night at home and now have to travel to Dallas on a short week.) Look for Ezekiel Elliott to have another big game on the ground and for the Cowboys to win by a touchdown-plus.
