The Washington Redskins are undefeated, but they head to Dallas as clear underdogs to the Cowboys according to experts.

Apparently concerns over Tony Romo's cracked ribs hasn't dissuaded oddsmakers much. The Washington Redskins head to Jerryworld as five-point underdogs to the Dallas Cowboys and NFL experts around the internet are, for the most part, in agreement. 

SB Nation's own Andrew Sharp likes Dallas and the points in this one despite their questions on offense. In addition to Romo, the Cowboys have injury concerns surrounding Miles Austin, Dez Bryant and Felix Jones as well. Peter King isn't worried either, predicting Jesse Holley to ride in on a white steed and save the Cowboys' receiving corps. 

ESPN's panel has the Cowboys winning among six of nine experts, with Accuscore giving Washington just a 42 percent chance of winnning. CBSSports, too, likes Dallas, with all but one expert siding with the Cowboys. Pete Prisco is putting his money on Romo playing, and assuming he does he sees Washington heading home with an eight-point loss hanging over their heads.

Judging from opinions around the web, you wouldn't guess that the Redskins are the only undefeated team playing in this game. Romo will be the key. With all signs pointing to him playing Monday night, the Cowboys are the comfortable favorite.
