Redskins vs. Cowboys Monday Night Football Free Pick And Preview
With numerous teams capping 50 points this weekend, you look at this dominant Dallas offense and wonder why they cannot tonight. If they stick to what has got them to this point, that means they will run first and pass second, and that eats clock. Washington’s defense is injury riddled and ranked 25th in the NFL in points allowed and they have allowed more points than anyone in the division to date.
The Cowboys shit hammered them last year in Dallas 31-16 and Dallas was not near as sharp as they are this year. The Redskins themselves cannot run the ball, ranked 22nd in the NFL at 99 ypg and tonight Colt McCoy gets the start for the first time as a Redskin as the Kirk Cousins experiment failed miserably, no thanks to his offensive line. Bear in mind McCoy is a 3rd team backup for a reason folks.
The Cowboys defense is better solely because the offense is re-vamped and running the ball and controlling the clock, and taking the pressure off QB Romo and giving the defense long lapses before returning to the field and they are fresh. Since Washington will struggle against the run, I see more domination from the Dallas OL tonight, and ample opportunity for Dallas to score, especially at home here tonight.
I do not see The Redskins scoring a ton here, and I see a clock eating, in your face, down your throat run attack with a few big play action plays to Dez Bryant and company and Witten thrown in on seam routes when the run is working. Washington is a work in progress for first year coach Jay Gruden, and Dallas trying to really step up and win this division with NY and Philly falling from grace.
The Free Pick Is A Play On: Under 49.5 Points
