Coming off a bye week, the Redskins travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys in a nationally-televised matchup. Dallas is coming off a devastating 48-51 loss to the Broncos where Tony Romo threw for over 500 yards and 5 touchdowns.
Here is a full breakdown of Sunday’s night’s game.

Cowboys Player to Watch: Terrance Williams
Although Miles Austin is returning to the lineup, which could take snaps away from Williams, Dallas could be expected to rely on Williams to pick up first downs over the middle if Dez Bryant and Austin are double-teamed on the outside.
Williams actually created more separation on slants and comeback routes last week against Denver, and he is slowly evolving into a reliable target for Romo.
Redskins Player to Watch: Alfred Morris
Morris is a go for Sunday night after injuring his ribs last week at Oakland. The Redskins’ gameplan will involve controlling the clock, so expect a heavy dose of Morris early and often.
Matchup to Watch: Tony Romo vs. London Fletcher
This matchup between the offensive and defensive signal callers of the Cowboys and Redskins, respectively, is more of a mental game than a physical matchup. Fletcher’s defensive adjustments will be critical as the Redskins’ defensive scheme may be the factor in deciding the game.
If Romo can put up 500 yards against Denver’s secondary, which is much better than Washington’s, imagine what he can do against a depleted unit on Sunday night. Cowboys 31, Redskins 17
