This season the NFC East might be determined.
Two weeks into this year, the Cowboys and Redskins may have played one third of the program.
The’boys opened together using the Giants, winning 35-17, Sunday. The Skins fell to the.
Now, the two classic competitions play with each other, with the Cowboys getting the opportunity to go up two full games on Washington until the dust has even settled on the season.
The Redskins hope to get back some reinforcements .
The team published tight end J.P. Holtz before this week, and this leads many to speculate that tight end Jordan Reed might be prepared to return.
This past year reed had 54 catches for yards, however he missed the opener.
Coach Jay Gruden was optimistic on Monday that Reed will be prepared to go.
The Skins may get back All-Pro left tackle.
Tackle Morgan Moses told a Washington sports radio channel that it was”50/50″ which Williams would return in time to the Cowboys.
Former Skin DeAngelo Hall, who says he has been connected Williams, reported that he’d be back”earlier rather than later.”
“We have heard whispers about perhaps Week 2,” he said, without naming a particular date.
Washington should also have running back Adrian Peterson in the lineup. He had been inactive for week one, however with Derrius Guice heading to injury, the Skins will require Peterson to play.
The Skins aren’t convinced about end Jonathan Allen, who hurt his leg. Gruden called him”week to week.”
Things couldn’t have gone better at Week One for Dallas.
The Cowboys reunite Ezekiel Elliott, who finished his holdout in the time to rush for 53 yards and a touchdown.
He also missed the entire preseason, so there is reason to expect him to improve as he shakes the offseason rust off.
It is safe to state the existence of Elliott helped take pressure off the passing game. Quarterback Dak Prescott turned at the opener into a passer rating.
Prescott finished 25 of 32 passes for 402 yards and four touchdowns, becoming the first Cowboy ever to post a match.
Unlike the Skins, the Cowboys were able to remain mostly healthy from the opener.
Safety Jeff Heath and receiver Randall Cobb equally suffered injuries that may be best termed as”nagging,” but is expected to miss time.
The Cowboys will not continue to be ideal at passer, but there is reason to believe Dallas still has room to improve.
The Redskins are still unsettled. If they reunite their players, it will take time.
Start looking for Dallas to roll in week two.
