Cowboys Looking To Maintain Excellent Start
The Dallas Cowboys have been the standout team in the NFC East to this point, but their record is still below the standard that has been set by the remainder of the Super Bowl-chasing sides in the National Football Conference. The Cowboys have won two of their six games to this point. With their last win coming against the New York Giants, as they won 37-34. That was an excellent performance by the Cowboys, as they took control of the game in the second quarter by outscoring the Giants 21-6.
However, they will come into this match against Washington after being beaten in their last match in the NFL against the Arizona Cardinals. Dallas had little answer in that match against the high-flying Cardinals, as they suffered a 38-10 defeat. Dallas currently have a 2-4 record in the NFL, with both of their wins to this point coming at the AT&T Stadium. Dak Prescott has completed 1,856 passing yards so far this season, while Ezekiel Elliot and Amari Cooper lead the terms in terms of rushing yards and receiving yards. Jaylon Smith has made the most tackles for the Cowboys this season, as he has already made 63.
Washington’s Stuttering Form
Washington have endured a season to forget to this point, as they are currently rock-bottom of the NFC East. They have lost five of their six games in the NFL so far this season, but their only win so far has come in their home stadium. However, Washington will come into this having lost their last five games. During that run, they have been beaten by the Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Rams and the New York Giants.
That defeat against the Giants was their last match in the NFL, as they suffered a tight 20-19 defeat. Washington did well to get back into the game at the MetLife Stadium, as they trailed 10-0 after the opening quarter. They managed to get back into the contest with high scoring quarters in the second and fourth. That kind of performance is what Washington must repeat against the Cowboys.
