After pulling off two consecutive wins, some now believe that the Dallas Cowboys are in the driver's seat in the NFC East. Both of those wins came at home, and this week they travel to face the Washington Redskins. Washington has lost five straight games, the worst skid in the NFL besides the Colts. Injuries have taken their toll, but some will wonder if Mike Shanahan can get his team up for a home game against a bitter division rival.
Peter King picks the Cowboys in his week 11 picks.
In the past -- oh, way back in the pre-DeMarco days -- I'd be picking Dallas to lose this game, because they just do weird things to lose games they certainly should win, particularly rivalry games. But with Murray, life is different in Dallas. The sun is warmer. The sky is bluer. Murray has changed everything with the Cowboys. Last four games: 150.3 rushing yards per game -- and a ridiculous eight yards per rush. Rest, Felix. Rest.
Most are predicting a one-sided win for Dallas, but Vinnie Iyer at the Sporting News sees a close game, ultimately won by the Cowboys. Pete Prisco picks Dallas to win a laugher. ESPN's panel all pick the Cowboys, so does CBS' group of experts.
