Redskins-Cowboys Predictions

Screen Shot 2015-12-29 at 11.32.56 AM

As ever, these are our crackerjack staff’s predictions for Week 17. Make yours down in the comments. Whoever comes closest gets to make a guest post on this here weblog.

JP Finlay: Redskins, 30-13

Skins win. Dallas suuuuuuucks. D-line pressure will keep it going against whoever is the Cowboys QB.

Matt Terl: Cowboys, 27-24

I mean, I dunno. It’s a meaningless game for GOOD reasons for once. I’m sure something awful will happen (RIP, someone’s knee, probably), but they’ll still be in the playoffs afterwards! That’s cool! (I’m trying Kirk Cousins-style earnestness on for size.)

Todd Davis: Redskins, 23-20

Even the backups have to be more motivated than the Cowboys playing out the string with Moore or Cassel. Also bet we see some inspired RB play given Pierre’s sudden emergence and the almost certain possibility that one of the Alf/Thompson/Jones/Thomas quartet won’t make the playoff roster. And I really hope we see as many backups as possible.

Andy Peden: Redskins, 27-16

Colt McCoy lights up the Cowboys again. Dallas gets the third pick in the draft.

Jack Kogod: Redskins, 17-13

[Peden’s prediction] sounds about right.

Chris Mottram: Redskins, 31-13

After losing in Atlanta and proving that they are total frauds who can only win 14 games, the Panthers now are playing a meaningful game in Week 17 — if they lose and the Cardinals win, Carolina is the 2-seed. But that ain’t happening at home against the Bucs. The road to the Super Bowl goes through the Queen City.

Jamie Mottram: Redskins, 27-17

Washington is rolling and Dallas is rolling over, which is a role reversal from last year, when the 11-4 Cowboys visited the 4-11 Redskins in Week 17 with nothing at stake. They won 44-17.

Composite prediction: Redskins, 26-15

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    A reversal of the norm: the Cowboys, with nothing to play for, get a meaningless win and spend the offseason self-satisfied that at least they beat the Redskins twice. Bonus: they ruin their draft position in the process.

    Cowboys: 20
    Redskins: 18

    Regardless of the score, pull the starters at halftime.

    I don’t give a rat’s ass who wins this game.
