The Redskins will be without four of their most important players in their first big division game of the season.

When the first-place Redskins (3-2) line up against the second-place Cowboys (3-3) on Sunday, they'll be without Quinton Dunbar, Jamison Crowder, Chris Thompson and Paul Richardson.

Dunbar didn't appear to be himself when he came out for pregame warmups. Without him on the field, Josh Norman will need to have a huge game to keep Dak Prescott in check.

The Redskins are missing three huge offensive weapons in Crowder, Thompson and Richardson, which means Jordan Reed must get open early and often, and Alex Smith needs to find him. On the ground, the offense will likely run through a combination of Adrian Peterson, Samaje Perine and Kapri Bibbs.

Somewhere, between Michael Floyd and Josh Doctson, the Redskins will need to find some passing offense.

In all, Washington is extremely limited on both sides of the ball heading into its most important game of the season. Terrible luck.
