Cowboys news: Final injury report, matchups to watch, and game predictions for the Washington game

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Here is your Sunday edition of Cowboys news... Brett Favre’s biting Cowboys critique; 10 other notes - Jon Machota, The Athletic How offensive coordinator Kellen Moore feels about the team’s backup quarterback. 9. Start No. 2 for Andy Dalton. The Cowboys starting QB is hoping his second start in Dallas goes much better than the first. The problem is that Washington’s defensive front is more talented than the one that was all over Dalton Monday night. “We’re feeling like we made some tremendous strides this week, this second week with this group...

The pressure is squarely on Ezekiel Elliott’s shoulders this week

The pressure is squarely on Ezekiel Elliott’s shoulders this week

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The Cowboys running back needs to turn things around. Ezekiel Elliott’s past football life consisted of raw, consistent production. The man was a pillar of the grit and grind attitude that embodied countless Cowboy teams of yesteryear. Whether it was yard-crunching displays that vaulted him to a league rushing title, suction cup catches that made him a favorite reliable target for his quarterback, or the emotional sparks that flooded his team’s sideline after Zeke performed his trademark “eating” celebration before signaling a first down, his impact...

Know your history: The Cowboys-Football Team matchup

Know your history: The Cowboys-Football Team matchup

Washington’s name change is only the latest wrinkle in this historic rivalry. The rivalry between the Dallas and Washington teams has been one of the NFL’s longest lasting rivalries, but this week for the first time, the game will be played specifically between the Cowboys and the Football Team. It’s a strange name change, which will make for an interesting discussion regarding these two teams. The Cowboys have played the Football Team a grand total of 118 times. That’s tied with the Eagles for most ever matchups against Dallas. It’s also the second-highest win percentage against...

Don’t look now, but Joe Philbin has done a great job with this Cowboys offensive line

Don’t look now, but Joe Philbin has done a great job with this Cowboys offensive line

Photo by Steven Ryan/ You know, within reason. Sunday’s game against a very good Washington pass rush could dramatically change things, but the fact is Joe Philbin is doing yeoman’s work in his first year as the Cowboys’ offensive line coach. Back in August, it was noted that the offensive line was in a very precarious position and that Philbin would have his hands full. But no one could predict the complete and total injury collapse we’ve since witnessed, but the underlying point remains. Tyron Smith and La’el Collins are gone for the year, and swing tackle Cam Erving is...

We are going to learn a lot about the Cowboys’ chances in the NFC East over the next 10 days

We are going to learn a lot about the Cowboys’ chances in the NFC East over the next 10 days

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Can the Cowboys win it? Week 7 brought with it one of the most fun/awful experiences of Thursday Night Football to date. The Philadelphia Eagles managed to outlast the New York Giants by a score of 22-21, Daniel Jones fell on his own, it was quite the thrill. Thanks to their comeback victory the Eagles now have two wins to their name through Week 7. Collectively the NFC East will finish the week with as many wins as the digit of the week itself, regardless of who wins on Sunday between the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Football Team. The NFC East is bad....

What the Cowboys offense should expect from the Washington defense

What the Cowboys offense should expect from the Washington defense

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Pain. The Cowboys should expect pain. Last week, the Cowboys’ depleted offensive line was shredded by the aggressive 3-4 defense of the Cardinals, who utilized an exotic array of blitzes to isolate the worst linemen and force them into mistakes. This week, the Cowboys will be without Zack Martin for the whole game as they face a 4-3 defense that blitzes less than Dallas but still gets to the quarterback with ease. Poor, poor Andy Dalton. The Washington Football Team may have a silly name and a bad offense, but their defense is no joke. Head coach Ron Rivera and...

Evaluating the Washington offense ahead of week seven’s NFC East showdown with the Cowboys

Evaluating the Washington offense ahead of week seven’s NFC East showdown with the Cowboys

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports Will the Cowboys defense continue to struggle against the Washington offense Sunday? The Football Team’s offense is bad. The Cowboys defense might be worse. A moveable object meets a stoppable force. We’re in for a treat on Sunday, and it isn’t going to be a treat any of us enjoy. A few weeks ago, we wrote about the Giants offense heading into the Cowboys week five matchup versus New York. A lot of the same things we wrote that week we will talk about again today. It all starts with the struggles at quarterback, and the ability to move the football...

Five things to watch when the Cowboys play the Washington Football Team

Five things to watch when the Cowboys play the Washington Football Team

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports What will you be watching on Sunday? After three straight games at AT&T Stadium, the Dallas Cowboys now travel to Washington to play the Football Team. Although things have not gone well for the Cowboys thus far, Dallas has a great opportunity to put a strangle hold on the division over the next two weeks if they can come away with wins against Washington and Philadelphia. Before the season started, this game against Washington was seen as one of the easier games on the schedule, but some poor football by Dallas has made things interesting as this game is now...

Let’s see which of these are the biggest reason for the Cowboys failures so far this season by taking a poll. Let’s kick this off on the offensive side of the football.

Week 7 Primer: Cowboys @ Football Team

Photo by Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportswire via These two teams are much more alike than they should be. Nobody expected there to be this many similarities between Dallas and Washington at the start of the year. Washington was undergoing a complete structural rebuild under new head coach Ron Rivera, who was given complete control over the front office as well as football operations. On top of that, owner Dan Snyder remains the focal point of multiple different controversies - including the laziest name change ever - that have led the minority shareholders of the franchise to sell their stake...

Cowboys @ Football Team final injury report: Zack Martin officially ruled out

Cowboys @ Football Team final injury report: Zack Martin officially ruled out

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports The final injury report for the Cowboys and Washington this week. The bad news for the Dallas Cowboys was delivered earlier today by coach Mike McCarthy. As the team heads over to play the Washington Football Team, they will do so without right guard Zack Martin. He has been in concussion protocol since the Cardinals game and will not play this weekend. Presumably Connor McGovern will fill in for him. The Cowboys designated both Chidobe Awuzie and Sean Lee for return from injured reserve, but neither will play this weekend and there isn’t a specific...

Point-counterpoint: Looking for culprits as the Cowboys implode

Photo by Andrew Dieb/Icon Sportswire via After leaks about player frustrations with the coaching staff, our dueling writers debate who’s at fault for the Cowboys woes. This is not what we signed on for. As fans of the Dallas Cowboys, we were convinced that change was going to be a big help after the frustrations of the Jason Garrett years. A new coaching staff under Mike McCarthy was seen as a breath of fresh air that would blow some of the disappointments away. Then we had an apparently very successful free agency to go with an exciting draft class. The limitations of the pandemic...

Three players outside the organization that could help the Cowboys turn their season around

Photo by Eric Espada/ Which player would you most like to see the Cowboys acquire? For the Dallas Cowboys, the 2020 regular season has gotten off to a dreadful start. It seems like everything that could go wrong, has gone wrong, and Dallas sits with an unimpressive 2-4 record six games in. The Dallas defense is making history, in all the wrong ways. The unit has given up the fifth most points in NFL history in the first six games, giving up 35 plus points five games in a row. So if you’re the Cowboys where do you go now? Well, lucky enough for Dallas, there are some players potentially...
