RB Antonio Gibson is a Problem the Cowboys Must Contain in Week 12

    A lot has changed for both the and the Washington Football Team since Week 7 when these two teams last met. The one thing that hasn't though is the fact the Cowboys were completely trounced 25-3 in that last meeting and that lingering embarrassment should still hold true heading into Week 12. If nothing else, Dallas will be looking to get a little revenge against their division rival.

    In order to get a little of their own back though the Dallas Cowboys are going to have to play much better than they did back in that Week 7 meeting against Washington. A measly field goal this time around isn't going to get the job done just like it it didn't in their previous meeting. Putting more points up on the board is a must, but so is keeping Washington from doing the same.

    In the first meeting the rookie out of Memphis was a problem for the Dallas Cowboys. 's former teammate had a career day against the Cowboys and turned 20 carries into 128 rushing yards and one touchdown. It just so happens that's the only 100-yard game he's had thus far in 2020 and Dallas would love to make sure it stays that way.

    After giving up 115 yards and a touchdown on the ground and another 45 yards through the air to someone as talented as , containing Antonio Gibson should be relatively easy for the Cowboys . I however am not so sure though. Gibson is talented in his own right as both a runner and receiver out of the backfield and could yet again be a problem for Dallas.

    You may not be aware of it, but Antonio Gibson is playing really well right now for Washington. Four of his eight rushing touchdowns have come in the last three weeks and he was also just six measly yards shy of his second 100-yard game last week against the . Whether it's as a runner or receiver he is someone Dallas' defense must account for on any given play.

    Antonio Gibson of course is just one player and can't lead Washington to victory by himself. But, if the Dallas Cowboys truly want to crown themselves the champs they can't afford No. 24 to run wild like he did in their previous meeting. If it does, that would all but end any hopes the Cowboys had of reaching the as strange as that sounds.

    Do you think the Dallas Cowboys defense can contain Antonio Gibson?
