Washington has won six straight but will probably need this game to win the NFC East and make the playoffs (though could be in if Chicago and Minnesota lose earlier as a wild card). They still want to win the division. They have to do against their rival on a Sunday night. The Cowboys have made it tougher on themselves by getting behind early and coming back late. They beat Pittsburgh in OT two weeks ago, 27-24 but lost last week at home to New Orleans, 34-31 in OT. Robert Griffin III has 20 TDs to just five picks and has a 104.1 passer rating. Dallas has dropped eight of nine Sunday night games.
