Dallas Cowboys. Washington Redskins. One of the greatest rivalries in NFL history continues this Sunday as the Cowboys travel to Washington with hopes to continue their hot start.
Last week was a huge win for Dallas on many levels, and especially for the offense. Dak Prescott’s 400-yard and four-touchdown game against the Giants showed huge promise as the quarterback heads into his fourth season. Ezekiel Elliott looked sharp coming off of his offseason holdout, with a touchdown and 53 yards on 13 carries.
As for the Redskins, Washington came out of the gate strong against Phillidalphia but were unable to finish, bringing home a loss in week one. Case Keenum had an amazing 380 yards and three touchdowns, most of which came in the first half. The defense looked strong through the first two quarters, before finally allowing 32 points to the Wentz led Eagles.
DAL 20 – WAS 13
This should be a good matchup for the simple reason that it is a rivalry game. The Cowboys are a much better team than Washington at this moment, and I think that they will be able to virtually shut down the Redskins’ young offense. The Dallas defense had a weak showing in week one, and I think that coach Jason Garrett will be able to fire up his team and get them playing like super bowl contenders.
As for the offense, Dak will likely not throw for 400-4 again, but 300 yards and three touchdowns is very reasonable. Expect a lower scoring game in this one, but the Cowboys still improve to a strong two-and-zero on the year.
