Dallas Cowboys Wishlist VS Washington Redskins

With playoff contention at play, the 5-6 Cowboys will host the 5-6 Redskins for a classic East match. For both teams, this is a “make-or-break” kind of game. With the Cowboys coming from three straight blowout losses, the expectations for this football team aren't as high as one would like them to be.

Instead of arguing if the Cowboys can be contenders, the discussion among 's members revolves around firing coaches, pointing fingers at players and more.

That's why, as every game day, I share with you my . Let's try to take our minds off of the staff, the injured players and more by hoping these wishes come true.

If you have any wishes yourself, don't hesitate to use the comments section below to share them with Cowboys Nation!  

Wish #1: Keep Hope Alive

Every week, the main wish is to get the W. But now, it's more about just winning a football game. The were supposed to be one of the best teams in the . But through 13 weeks, they have a losing record and need a win to stay alive.

Dez Bryant, Jason Witten

Before, I'm sure Cowboys Nation's would have high hopes on this team's chances of turning things around. Today though, that may not be the case.

I wish someway, somehow, the Cowboys come out tonight ready to surprise everyone by putting on a show and beating the .

Wish #2: Chidobe Awuzie Gets an INT

Will Chidobe Awuzie's Return Benefit The Cowboys' Defense?Earlier this week, it was announced that was being demoted. The sophomore was one of the Cowboys' starting , and after an impressive rookie season, we expected it to remain that way.

However, Brown has had a rough year as he's been burned by a lot of WRs throughout the year. So now, it may be second-round pick 's time to shine.

After dealing with an at the start of the season, Chido is now healthy and he'll surely get his chance to prove himself tonight. With a lot more changes coming to the , I wish Awuzie gets away with an interception, giving every Cowboys fan out there a taste of what he can do.

Bonus Wish: Anthony Brown may have been disappointing as CB1, but what if he gets back on track by being tried on different spots of the secondary? Now, that would be awesome.

Wish #3: Rod Smith Gets More Carries and Scores Again

Has RB Rod Smith Emerged As Ezekiel Elliott's Primary Backup?The Cowboys have barely been able to score points without super star . Last week, was able to score a TD against the Chargers as he was handed the ball nine times by QB .

After releasing , the battle for the back-up running back position in Dallas is all between and Rod Smith.

Personally, I'm a fan of Smith. I really think he's got more upside and potential than Morris, and I like the idea of him becoming a long-term back-up for Zeke down the road.

Hopefully, with a desperate to make some changes, Smith will get more opportunities to shine, maybe even score another touchdown. I wish he does.

Wish #4: Dak Bounces Back

No one is safe from this . Not even Dak Prescott. Naturally, he's being slandered by a large portion of NFL fans. Earlier this week, Brian Martin wrote about how this team could get Dak back on track.

Without Zeke, it is imperative to see 4 back at it again. He'll need a lot of help from his teammates, specially since is expected to start at RT.

While many fans are quick to judge Dak's short throws on third-and-long downs, the truth is these receivers are not getting open. I get that Prescott is to blame for a lot of things, but it's not all on him.

I wish that not only Dak Prescott gets back on track, but the whole becomes effective once again.

Wish #5:  Dan Bailey Splits The Uprights

Last Thursday, we were excited to see , and active to play versus the . But even though he was out there, we didn't get to see any field goal or extra point attempt by the most accurate in NFL .

Hopefully, we get the chance to see 5 do his thing and kick FGs making it like the easiest thing on Earth today.

Not only would it mean that Automatic Bailey is officially back, but also that Dallas is scoring points and is actually in the game and not getting blown-out again.
