The Dallas Cowboys are looking to set themselves apart from the Denver Broncos and prove they are the best team in the NFL as they hold a 6-1 record.
They will face the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football after putting on another prolific offensive performance against the New York Giants.
Quarterback Tony Romo continued to play well as he completed 17-of-23 of his passes for 279 yards and three touchdowns with one interception.
Running back DeMarco Murray continued to build a case for MVP as he ran for 128 yards and a touchdown on 28 carries, and wide receiver Dez Bryant caught nine passes for 151 yards.
Meanwhile, the Redskins are looking to keep their slim chances of winning the NFC East alive as they hold a 2-5 record. They came away with a narrow victory over the Tennessee Titans while Colt McCoy filled in for the benched Kirk Cousins at quarterback.
Running back Alfred Morris is looking to get back on track after failing to run for more than 54 yards or a touchdown in each of his last three games.
The Redskins offense may be able to put points on the board even if McCoy starts as assumed, but the Cowboys will be too much for them with their offense, and their defense has been solid as well.
Prediction: Cowboys 34, Redskins 20
