Three staff writers for dallascowboys.com recently posted their gut feeling for this week’s road game against the Washington Redskins. While that might not seem too out of the ordinary, one of the writers feels that his Cowboys will not walk off the field with a victory when the final whistle blows.
Both David Helman and Rowan Kavner believe the Cowboys are poised for a victory, but Nick Eatman’s gut is feeling a bit more uneasy when it comes to this NFC East showdown on Sunday.
“My gut for this game isn’t so great. Somehow, I have a hard time seeing the Cowboys get out this place with a win. Then again, I really don’t think the season and playoff hopes will be over after Sunday. Whatever the Cowboys do, I see the Eagles doing as well, setting up a showdown next week like we all expected,” wrote Eatman on dallascowboys.com. “I think the Cowboys can definitely win this game, but I worry about the defense stopping the run, especially if it gets rainy and turns into a sloppy-field game. I don’t think you can dismiss the fact Washington has just three wins. A three-win team is a bad team.”
The Cowboys are 7-7 on the season and may need to win out in order to make it into the playoffs.
