The Dallas Cowboys turned out an impressive opening week performance against the New York Giants. The offense appeared to be projecting upwards under the leadership of Kellen Moore. Dak Prescott looked like a quarterback worth his asking price, while the receiving core is arguably the best it has been under Jason Garrett. However, many people doubt Dallas can repeat their offensive explosion. Our writers give their prediction on how things will shake out against the Washington Redskins:
Corey: Before the season, everyone was saying how the Cowboys should win their first three games, completely overlooking the Washington Redskins game in Washington. Before last weeks game, I expected the Cowboys to actually lose a hard fought battle. Now, after the teams week 1 performance and Josh Normans comments, I expect Dak Prescott to make enough plays for the Cowboys to sneak out of Washington with a win to improve to 6-1 against Washington in his career. I also expect to see more Ezekiel Elliott in this game. Cowboys 24-21.
Dylan: The dynamic in Washington sure is an interesting one right now. The franchise is probably at an all-time low point in prestige and in-house functionality. However, they still were able to go on the road and get out to a 17-0 lead last weekend in Philadelphia. I don’t think this week will be as easy as last for the Cowboys, but it should still be a win on the road. I think the takes a mild step back against slightly better competition, but we still see plenty to keep us excited about the Kellen Moore offense. I would think there is a lot more Zeke this week and that might lead to longer and fewer possessions overall as the Cowboys control the time of possession. Dallas 24-13.
Juwan: A lot of people are skeptical of just how good this Cowboys offense is after their performance against the Giants, and, rightly so. I didn’t instantly crown the Cowboys super bowl winners but there was a huge positive takeaway from their week 1 win. The offense moved without a great day, by Ezekiel Elliott’s standards, from their star running back. Dak looked more confident. And, instead of “imposing their will,” they simply took what the defense gave them. In fact, they “aggressively” took what was there. The Redskins presents a better defense than the Gaints. However, teams will want to see the Cowboys consistently beat them through the air. Judging by how successful the Eagles were at getting the ball downfield I see another good day from Michael Gallup. Washington’s defensive front is full of talent, so I don’t see that big day from Zeke quite yet. But he will be more involved in the passing game. Also, this Cowboys defense wants to prove their a better unit than last year. I see them making a statement this Sunday following a subpar performance against the Giants. Give me Dallas on the road, 28-14.
