Cowboys Seahawks, was one of the best games of the season thus far. The Cowboys did lose Sunday, but I was very proud with how the team performed, considering all of the injuries. The Cowboys were without Tyron Smith, and La’el Collins again. Brandon Knight started at LT, and Terence Steele started at RT. The Cowboys had to do some shuffling along the Offensive Line. Terence Steele had food poisoning, and was in and out of the lineup. RG Zack Martin moved to RT. C Joe Looney moved to RG, and rookie Tyler Biadasz stepped in at C.
The Cowboys have allowed 77 points the past 2 games, which is their highest two-week total in franchise history. They’ve allowed 97 points this year, their most ever through a season’s first 3 games. To say the Defense is in shambles, would be an understatement. Leighton Vander Esch, who’s arguably our top player on Defense, is hurt, and we’re really missing him on the 2nd level of our Defense. Chidobe Awuzie, and Anthony Brown, didn’t play Sunday, and our Secondary really struggled as a result. Rookie Trevon Diggs made one of the plays of the year, when he punched the Football from D.K. Metcalf, before he crossed the goal line, saving a Touchdown, and forcing a touchback. Diggs has been stellar so far for us, and I’m really excited to see how he develops over the years. Aldon Smith had 3 sacks on Sunday, bringing his total to 4, which leads the NFL. He’s back, and he’s going to be huge down the stretch.
The Offense continues to stay red hot, and I see it staying that way the rest of the season. Cedrick Wilson, is finally healthy, and had the best game so far of his career, catching 5 passes for 107 yards, and scoring 2 Touchdowns. He’s going to be a nice complement to Cooper, Gallup, and Lamb. Our running game wasn’t really clicking Sunday, so Prescott had to throw it 57 times. Prescott is starting to elevate his game, and it’s evident. He threw for 472 yards, 3 Touchdowns, and threw 2 Interceptions. He played really well, considering all the changes along the Offensive Line. This Offense, is gonna be even more lethal, once we get Smith, and Collins back.
The Browns are coming to town on Sunday, coming off a win over the Bengals last Thursday night, which moved them to 2-1. Once this Cowboys’ team gets fully healthy, their going to be even more dangerous, than they already are. Hopefully Tyron Smith is back Sunday, especially when one of the best pass rushers in the league in Myles Garrett, is on the other side. I see the Cowboys bouncing back this Sunday, and beating the Browns 34-23.
