Dallas tries to calm a scorching Washington


NFL Week 14 Latest (All Time EST):

12:15 p.m.

The Dallas Cowboys will have the chance to calm the burgeoning Washington football team down when their longtime rivals meet at FedEx Field.

Washington is leading a four-game winning streak that took it to 6-6, two games behind Dallas (8-4). The football team will be shorthanded along the defensive line. Montez Sweat and James Smith-Williams are both absent after being placed on the COVID-19 list. Washington is already without star Chase Young, sidelined for the season with a knee injury.

Washington swept the Dallas seasonal streak last year en route to the NFC East title.

In Cleveland, Baltimore will try to beat the Browns for the second time in three weeks. The Ravens beat Cleveland 16-10 in Baltimore late last month. A victory for the Ravens would end any hope the Browns (6-6) have of capturing AFC North.

The Browns will be deprived of their two best tight ends. David Njoku, who leads the team in receiving yards, is out after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this week. Harrison Bryant will also miss the game with a high ankle sprain.

The first window also includes Kansas City (8-4) looking for a fifth straight win as it hosts Las Vegas (6-6). Tennessee (8-4) is at home against modest Jacksonville (2-10) while Atlanta (5-7) travels to Carolina (5-7), Seattle (4-8) visits Houston (2-10) ) and New Orleans (5-7) face the New York Jets (3-9).

The Kansas City Chiefs will be without L’Jarius Sneed when they face the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday after their starting cornerback’s brother was stabbed to death in his hometown of Minden, La. .

T’Qarontarion Harrison, who was largely responsible for Sneed’s education as a child, was killed in an incident on Friday. Minden Police said a woman, Angela Washington, had been charged with second degree homicide.

Sneed stayed in Louisiana on Sunday to be with his family.

Sneed has played 756 snaps this season, more than anyone in the Chiefs’ defense, and his emergence as one of their best defensive backs has been crucial to an astonishing turnaround on this side of the ball. Kansas City was historically incompetent on defense earlier this season, but held five consecutive opponents 17 points or less. ___
