By Kevin Cooney
There’s a three-way tie for second place in the NFC East, and two of those teams – the Washington Football Team and Dallas Cowboys – will duel on Thanksgiving Thursday for sole possession of the lead.

1. What will the last scoring play of the first half be?
The options: Dallas TD, Dallas FG, Washington TD, Washington FG, any other score, or no score
Both teams featured drastically different offenses on Sunday, largely due to the two quarterbacks that have taken control. Alex Smith has the Washington offense back on track, while Andy Dalton’s return provided life to a Cowboys attack that had struggled since Dak Prescott went down with a season-ending injury.
2. How will the first touchdown of the third quarter be scored?
The options: Dallas rushing, Dallas passing, Washington rushing, Washington passing, any other way (which includes special teams), and no touchdowns
When these two met in Landover, Md. on Oct. 25, no touchdowns were scored in the second half. Washington dominated before the break and added on a field goal late en route to a 25-3 victory – that may have been the lowest point for the Cowboys this season.
But remember, these offenses looked vastly different. Another fact to keep in mind: Dallas’ defense has been much improved in recent weeks, especially against the run.

3. How many players will score a touchdown in the game?
The options: 1-2, 3, 4, 5, at least 6, or none
Both teams are loaded with offensive weapons, especially Dallas who can run Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard, or toss to Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb. So the number might be higher than you think with Andy Dalton effectively slinging the pigskin.
4. How many total points will be scored in the game?
The options: 40 or fewer, 41-45, 46-50, 51-55, 56-60, and at least 61
Washington holds the defensive advantage with a strong defensive front lead by Ryan Kerrigan and Chase Young, which has become more and more of a factor each week. And the entire organization is continuing to improve under new leadership and coach Ron Rivera.
If Washington is going to win, the number total could be in that 40 to 45 range, while Dallas needs over 50 to win. In other words, this pick probably depends on the ultimate winner.
5. Who has the most total yards, and how many will they finish with?
The options: 0-340, 341-360, 361-380, 381-400, 401-420 and at least 421
This is where Dallas’ offense shines. While Dalton is not Prescott, he is still an experienced, veteran quarterback who has a roster loaded with talent. The question is: can the Dallas defense hold up its end of the bargain? They did on Sunday in Minnesota. Now, they have to do it again for the top spot in the NFC East.
6. Which team wins, and by how many points?
The options: Either team by 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-9, 10-14, or 15+
The Cowboys have been given a second life by the mediocrity of the struggling NFC East. But the Big D need to take advantage of the opportunity. Washington’s time may be coming, but Dallas needs this game now.
