Early season divisional matchups can get funky, but this game sets up promisingly for the visiting Cowboys. The Cowboys have won five of this past six in this rivalry, and their injury report is in better shape than that of the Redskins. The ’Skins have Jordan Reed dealing with another concussion, could be without multiple defensive lineman and will be without projected starting running back Derrius Guice.
The Cowboys offense was explosive in Week 1, though, granted, that was against the lowly Giants. They had the second-most passing yards and the third-most total yards. Meanwhile, the Redskins allowed amongst the most favorable starting field positions for their opponent, with the Eagles’ average drive starting at 48-yard line. Washington’s defense was solidly average in 2018, and they’ll need to be at least that good in order to keep up with Dallas on Sunday. Offensively, though the Redskins rushed out to an early lead in the opener, they were scoreless through the second half until a meaningless touchdown down 12 with just 12 seconds left in the contest.
