2. Dallas Cowboys
As much as it may pain any Eagles fan to say this, the Dallas Cowboys are good. This isn’t the usual media hype machine that overdoes it with their promotion. This isn’t representative of some slanted or biased opinions. This definitely isn’t based on the blind observations of Skip Bayless and one of his rants. These are just facts.
The Cowboys can play.
Now, of course, there are quite a few teams who can put on a monster showcase when they play the Giants. Sure, that probably aided them to some extent, but Dallas, in Week 1, overcame the shortcomings of their coach and rode a strong performance from Dak Prescott as he appeared to be unphased by pressure, the contract talks, or anything else.
Prescott went 25 for 32 (that’s 78 percent) as he carved up the Giants for 405 yards and four touchdowns. The Cowboys did exactly what they were supposed to do. They took care of business at home against a bad football team.
Next, they head to FedExField to face a reeling Redskins team. How will that one turn out? We won’t have to wait long. Sunday will be here before you know it.
