Happy Thanksgiving to your and yours. As always, if you're sitting down to watch some football today, the Dallas Cowboys will be playing.

Dallas' opponent in its annual Turkey Day game is NFC East rival Washington. The Redskins enter today leading the NFC East with a 6-4 record, with Dallas in second place at 5-5.

Obviously, this is a meaningful matchup, and one that can swing the divisional race moving forward. Even though the Cowboys are trailing the Redskins in the standings, many view Dallas as the favorite in the NFC East because Washington lost its starting quarterback Alex Smith to a brutal leg injury.

ESPN has weighed in with its prediction for the game. The FPI likes the Cowboys at home.

Dallas has a 74.2 percent chance of winning, according to the computer.
