Can Dak Prescott Continue His Washington Domination On Sunday?

There has been a lot of change within the since 2016.

Veteran playmakers like and are no longer around, lost his starting job, and Dallas has jumped from league best to worst to average seemingly every week.

One thing hasn't changed these past two years, however, and that is the Cowboys beating the . In fact, since took over as the starting quarterback in Dallas the Cowboys are 4-0 against Washington. Even as the sky was falling in Dallas a year ago, and the Cowboys looked like the worst in football, they still found a way to dominate Washington 38-14 and snap their then-three game losing streak.

In his four career games against Washington, Dak Prescott has quarterback ratings of 103.7, 108.9, 82.2, and 93.4. To put this into context, Prescott's average quarterback rating this season is 85.5 and that is really driven by his outlier positive rating of 118.6 against the . To be fair, however, his 54.5 rating against Seattle was also a heavy outlier.

Prescott isn't the only Cowboy who has exercised this dominance over Washington, though. As Staff Writer John Williams has pointed out, is 11-4 against the Redskins since becoming the Cowboys , and Dallas has won six of their last eight against Washington since 2014.

So heading into Sunday's rematch with their division foe, says the Cowboys should be feeling rather confident, right?

Well there's another streak occurring the Cowboys will actually be looking to break on Sunday. That, of course, is their winless start on the road this season.

Ironically the Dak Prescott-led Cowboys have actually been a good road team until now, going a combined 12-4 the past two seasons. And, since the new stadium opened in 2009, the Cowboys have been historically better on the road than at home, making this year's 3-3 start even more bizarre.

To put it simply, “somethings gotta give” on Sunday. Either Dak Prescott and the Cowboys will continue to beat up on the Redskins and get a leg up in the East, or this horrendous road start will continue for another week.

Either way, I'm sure the takes will be hot on Monday morning.
