The Dallas Cowboys are set to play their Week 18 game against the Washington Commanders.
With plenty still on the line the Cowboys will play all of their starters, with hopes of improving their playoff seed.
Washington has already announced they will start rookie quarterback Sam Howell in the game.
The Cowboys have a chance to end the regular season on the right foot by getting their 13th win.
One player we know is going to show up in this game is Dak Prescott.
Prescott has a 27-6 career record against NFC East opponents.
Likewise, he is 9-1 in his career against Washington.
But, this weekend’s game could see Prescott make Cowboys history.
He needs only one touchdown pass to supplant Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman for second most in Cowboys history.

This is an impressive feat for Prescott who has accomplished this mark in 95 games, when it took Aikman 165.
Even though the NFL is much more of a passing league now than when Aikman played.
Once Prescott presumably passes Aikman on Sunday, the only player he will be chasing is Tony Romo.
Romo threw for 248 touchdowns in 156 games, Prescott will need another three good seasons to pass him.
But, where Prescott hopes to be remembered is for his playoff success in Dallas.
So far in his career, he is 1-3 in the playoffs.
But, will get another opportunity this season right make a deep postseason run.
Plenty of pressure will be on the Cowboys as they enter the NFC playoffs as one of the three favorites to win the conference.
One great playoff run from Dak could staple him as a Cowboys legend.NEXT: Dak Prescott Has An Unbelievable Record Against The NFC East
