Cowboys Host Redskins In Early Season Divisional Matchup

Posted by Stan Simmons on 2/4/2014 5:24:56 AM

The Washington Redskins have been slow going because of the return of Robert Griffin III to the field after tearing his ACL last season. Griffin has gotten better as the season has progressed but he still is nowhere near the level he was at last season, which is a large reason why the Redskins are 1-3. The Cowboys on the other hand are getting excellent quarterback play from Tony Romo which has helped the offense score an average of 30 points per game, which is the second highest scoring average in the NFL..

What To Watch For From The Dallas Cowboys

Romo has been getting solid offense line play all season long which is a large reason why he is in the middle of a career year. Romo is completing more than 70% of his passes and has thrown 13 touchdown passes and just two interceptions. Dez Bryant is another offensive player having a great season as the wide receiver has over 400 yards receiving and six receiving touchdowns. Romo has a strong supporting cast which is why sports bettors need to take notice as the Cowboys could become a contender very soon despite their 2-3 record. The defense for the Cowboys has struggled against the pass this season as the unit is giving up an average of 326 yards per game through the air, which has equated to giving up an average of 27 points per game.

What To Watch For From The Washington Redskins

While Griffin has had limited success passing the ball this season, the run game for the Redskins has been underused even though Alfred Morris is averaging 5.3 yards per carry. Morris however is averaging just 14 carries per game, which has further hindered the offense and has contributed to the Redskins’ tough start. Griffin lacks a true number one receiving threat which has made it tougher for him to come back from his injury, but he still appears to be uncomfortable in the pocket at times which could be a problem this weekend going up against DeMarcus Ware and a Cowboys defense that has 14 sacks on the season. The Redskins’ defense isn’t much better than that of the Cowboys’ as they give up an average of 28 points per game and nearly 400 total yards as well, meaning Sunday nights game could be a high scoring one.

Outlook

The Redskins are coming off a bye week which hopefully will help their struggling offense, but the Cowboys are coming off a shootout with the Denver Broncos in a game in which they scored 48 points behind the strong arm of Romo. The Cowboys have proven all season long they are capable of outscoring almost any offense in the league which is why I am picking them to cover the spread and beat their divisional rival.
