The Dallas Cowboys enter their Week 18 matchup with the Washington Commanders will plenty to play for.
At worst they will enter the playoffs as the fifth seed in the NFC.
But, they can even vault up to the first or second seed if they get some help on Sunday.
The only thing the Cowboys can control this week is how they play against the Commanders.
Luckily for them, Dak Prescott has been amazing against NFC East opponents in his career.
His 27-6 record against division opponents, just goes to show how well he has played.

In those 33 games, Prescott has thrown 60 touchdowns to only 18 interceptions while having a passer rating of 101.4.
There is no reason to believe that Prescott will not add another win this weekend.
Prescott has won 10 straight games against NFC East opponents as well.
This level of dominance against one’s division is rarely seen in the league.
While the Cowboys still have plenty to play for, the Commanders on the other hand do not.
They were eliminated from playoff contention last week, and it is still a question as to who they will play at quarterback in Week 18.
Against Washington in his career, Prescott has a record of 9-1, with the only loss coming in 2018.
One key reason for Prescott’s success has been a distinct quarterback advantage over Washington.
While the Commanders have fumbled over different quarterbacks for the past few seasons, Prescott has been the driving force in Dallas.
As most know, the team with the quarterback advantage is going to win more often than not in the NFL.
Prescott has been on the winning side of almost all the NFC East games he has played.
Now they need him to come through again in Week 18.
