The Las Vegas Raiders are looking to improve to 3-1 this season against the NFC East, after upsetting the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving in Dallas.
After a dominating performance over the Philadelphia Eagles, the Raiders faltered in a shocking loss to the horrific New York Giants after the bye week. That started a trend of losing, as they then lost back-to-back home games against Kansas City and Cincinnati.
However, the Raiders got back on track in Week 12, and with the win over the banged-up, but formidable Cowboys team, it will hopefully get the Raiders (6-5) back into contention after suffering three straight losses before the contest. The AFC is wide open heading into Week 13, and the Raiders got help on Sunday, but now they have to take care of business against another NFC East foe.
Facing off against the Washington Football Team should not be an easy task. They have not been one of the strongest teams this season, but are riding high on a two-game winning streak, with one of those wins being over the defending super bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Here, we will look at three things to watch in this crucial Week 13 matchup.
