WASHINGTON REDSKINS (PK)

The Redskins may be the most underrated team in the league. If you skim over Washington's schedule, you'll notice they haven't had it easy by any means this season. Their combined 2017 opponents record amounts to 61-49. They've taken teams like the Vikings and Saints to the brink, and have come away with victories over the mighty Rams and the Seahawks in Seattle! The teams they have lost to have a combined record of 38-17, and are all serious playoff contenders except Dallas (with Elliott). In the mist of all this, Washington ranks as a top 10 offense in yards per game and have taken care of every team they were supposed to take care of without a letdown. I don't see the Cowboys improving anytime soon, even if they are home in primetime. Dallas has averaged 7.3 points per game since running back Ezekiel Elliott's suspension, and rank dead last in yards per play and yards per game. The Cowboys are a cupcake opponent compared to what the Redskins have been through, Captain Kirk gets this one done!
