Oh, the sweet taste of victory! Beating Dallas is always a special thing, regardless of how non-competitive this once-fierce rivalry has become in the last few years.
It is evident that Kyle Allen knows Scott Turner’s offense better than Haskins and can run it effectively. However, that doesn’t mean that he is an upgrade or the future of our quarterback position. The running game got going behind rookie RB Antonio Gibson; I’ve been waiting for Gibson to have a breakout game, and this was his best game so far this season. The OL was dominant, although the stats show that Dallas’ defensive front can’t stop anybody, which is why we were able to dominate easily. Logan Thomas is becoming a reliable catching tight end, and Terry McLaurin is clearly the best wide receiver in the NFC East. Our defense allowed ZERO touchdowns and was always in complete control throughout the game.
Dallas is a dumpster fire right now.
Look, Dallas is terrible right now, so it is not like we beat the Chiefs; nevertheless, we should be winning games against bad teams like Dallas. The Cowboys are overrated and overhyped; years and years of overspending on overpriced and non-producing free agents is coming back to haunt them.
Bad news to find out Landon Collins is out for the season; sucks, ‘cause he found his rhythm before coming out of the game. Every year there are injuries on every team, and Washington has always struggled to deal with injuries, mostly when starters are ruled out. However, this 2020 team has solid depth and some quality backups to provide some hope as we go into the colder months. Next week is our bye week, and we take on the NY Giants on Week 9.
WFT 25 — COWBOYS 3:
And for the rest of the league…..
EAGLES 22 — GIANTS 21:
Everybody is alive in the NFC East, and both of these teams are trying to win some games to separate from the pack and take over this lousy division. Philly has an excellent chance to take a big step towards the NFC East title next week against 2-5 Dallas.
CARDINALS 37 — SEAHAWKS 34:
This game went to overtime, and it took two field goal attempts for Arizona to put away Seattle. Kyler Murray is slowly asserting himself as one of the most exciting players in the NFL. The Seahawks seem to be showing signs of weakness on the defensive side, leading to Russell Wilson taking some costly chances.
49ERS 33 — PATRIOTS 6:
San Francisco embarrassed New England at home; it was complete and total domination from the 49ers. Jimmy G had a decent game but still managed to throw 2 interceptions and zero TDs, which should be cause for concern if San Francisco intends to make another Super Bowl run. The Patriots have now lost 2 in a row and are starting to show cracks all over. Cam was benched late in the 3rd quarter after throwing 3 interceptions. New England has a HUGE division game next week against Buffalo. Belicheater is having a hard time winning without Brady.
RAMS 24 — BEARS 10:
Chicago had nothing to offer offensively, and Nick Foles threw 2 interceptions. Jared Goff was effective and managed the game well without any costly mistakes. Next week they take on a 3-3 Miami team with Tua making his first NFL start. Despite this loss, the Bears are 5-2 and in the mix of it all with Green Bay for the division, but they have another tough matchup against Drew Brees and the Saints.
BUCCANEERS 45 — RAIDERS 20:
Tom Brady put on another display of firepower against this hot and cold Vegas team. Brady threw 4 TDs and continued to get back in sync with Gronk. Next up for Tampa Bay is the NY Giants, which should be a more competitive game than New York’s record suggest. The Raiders are now 3-3 and looking like a possible wildcard team.
CHiEFS 43 —BRONCOS 16:
Although Patrick Mahomes only threw 1 TD, Kansas City’s defense and special teams scored TDs to run up the score on a struggling Denver team.
SAINTS 27 — PANTHERS 24:
Carolina lost another close and competitive game. They are now 1-3, but they are much better than their record suggests. Terry Bridgewater is playing tremendous, and McCaffrey might be back soon. Drew Bress has shut everybody up, pushing for James Winston to replace him.
BROWNS 37 — BENGALS 34:
This was the wildest game of the weekend. Joe Burrow and Baker Mayfield had themselves a shootout. Joe Burrow threw for over 300 yards with 3 TDs and 1 interception, while Baker Mayfield threw 5 TDs with 1 interception. Cleveland is now 5-2 but lost OBJ for the season. If this game is a sign of things to come for this division, we should be excited as football fans.
BILLS 18 — JETS 10:
The NY Jets made things difficult for Buffalo. The Bills scored 6 field goals to put this game away. I’m surprised at how much Buffalo is struggling lately, but they are still 5-2 and on top of their division.
STEELERS 27 — TITANS 24:
A thrilling game of undefeated teams that came down to a field goal. These two teams are destined to meet again in the playoffs.
PACKERS 35 — TEXANS 20:
Aaron Rodgers had an excellent rebound game after being embarrassed in their previous game by Tom Brady and the Bucs. Houston is struggling to remain relevant, but they are way better without Bill O’Brien. Their next Head Coach will inherit a talented team.
CHARGERS 39 — JAGUARS 29:
Justin Herbert is the real deal. Regardless of how they end up this season, the Chargers should be excited about what the future holds for this young team. Jacksonville is simply a mess.
LIONS 23 — FALCONS 22:
This was a heartbreaking loss for Atlanta. The Lions are now 3-3 and showing signs of life.
