Week 2 Preview: Cowboys at Redskins

Well if we weren’t disappointed in a heart breaking loss last week, we face another divisional rival where the game could go either way. Washington is coming off a humiliating loss to the Steelers and the Redskins looked horrible. No running game, no passing game, no anything, and Josh Norman looked to be Antonio Brown Island (bad joke?). Dallas on the other hand had a very efficient week 1 but could not get the ball in the endzone enough to win. Prescott was placed in a conservative gameplan and Dez was quiet. Now if there is one game where I see the rookie unleashed some more, this could be it. After taking a lot of heat during the week, Dallas coaches know they have to let Prescott play. Dez has been mentioned as a player who will not get force fed the ball, and if we know Dez he just wants to win. Let’s take a look at some keys for both teams.

  • Washington will need to establish the run and build off short yardage passes.
  • The Redskins defense will have to stay honest and if they do, it could allow there D line to pressure Prescott all day.
  • Norman will probably have the assignment of Dez Bryant, and if he cancels Dez out, there is not going to be a WR that the skins will be afraid of.
  • Dallas will also need to establish the run. This will open up the passing game and ease pressure off Prescott in the pocket.
  • Get Dak running a little more to keep the defense guessing.
  • The Cowboys have to get Dez involved with screens or slants. You cannot have your best offensive player duplicate the horrible performance he had week 1.
  • Do some toss running plays and screens to get Zeke in space.
  • Blitz the Redskins.

Tell us what you think Cowboys fans in regards to our preview. The last piece of info we want to add is that we see a Dallas win by a good margin of about 10 points.
