Cowboys vs. Washington live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Sunday Night Football’ game

As the NFL season gets into its final weeks the playoff picture is coming into clearer focus. Two teams in the NFC — Dallas and Green Bay — have punched their tickets to the postseason, with five more playoff spots up for grabs.

One of those teams vying for a playoff spot is Washington, though they’ll have their work cut out for them. At 6-8, they currently sit in 10th place in the NFC and will need to win out to have a chance at a playoff spot. 

That includes a win Sunday against Dallas, who beat Washington 27-20 with a fourth quarter comeback two weeks ago. Washington has been one of the teams hardest hit by the league’s COVID-19 protocols, with 12 of their players in the league’s protocol as of game time.

Washington has lost two in a row, but won four in a row before that, showing they’re capable of putting streaks together. But, they’ve been fairly pedestrian in terms of offensive and defensive output, ranking 23rd in total offense and 20th in total defense.

Dallas, meanwhile, has won three in a row, but hasn’t had a really resounding or dominant win that stretch. Unlike their NFC East counterparts, the Cowboys rank second in scoring offense and first in total offense and seventh in scoring defense and first in third down defense.

Dak Prescott is enjoying a good sesaon, with 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, but the real star is linebacker/defensive end Micah Parsons, a rookie out of Penn State. Parsons has 12 sacks, three forced fumbles and 17 tackles for loss this season as he campaigns to become the first rookie to win NFL Defensive Player of the Year since Lawrence Taylor.
