NFL Week 1 Preview, Prediction: Dallas Cowboys Vs. Washington Redskins

Dallas Cowboys (0-0) vs. Washington Redskins (0-0)

When: 8:20 p.m. Sunday, NBC

SB Nation Cowboys: Blogging The Boys

SB Nation Redskins: Hogs Haven

Breakdown: It's hard to find any advantage the Redskins have in this game. They're out-matched at almost every position. The key for them in this game is to get to QB Tony Romo early and often in order to avoid him getting into a rhythm. For the Cowboys, it's about showing why they're one of the best offenses in the NFL.

Player to Watch: QB Donovan McNabb is entering his first regular season game as a Redskin so he'll be the focal point. How he makes this weak Redskins receiving corps better will be a key to the game. If this were the Jason Campbell-led Redskins, then the Cowboys would be more than a touchdown favorite so McNabb's influence is important to note.

Line: Cowboys are 3.5 point favorites.

Prediction: The Cowboys should be able to take care of business in this game even with McNabb leading the Redskins. This is a rivalry game so look for it to stay close but the Cowboys will come out by a field goal or more.
