Cowboys Defense Should Lead to Blowout Win VS Injured Redskins

The play their most important football game of the season versus the Washington Redskins today on national television. It’s Thanksgiving, and ’ are ready to watch their favorite team take on the leaders for the #1 spot in the division. To be quite honest, this should be an easy win for the Cowboys.

This could’ve been a very interesting game but it’s managed to get less and less attention ever since the Redskins’ starting QB suffered a season-ending last Sunday. His place will be taken by good ol’ Colt McCoy.

Smith’s performance for Washington in 2018 had been decent, yet nothing special. However, this won’t be an easy game for a . McCoy will be facing a pretty tough . The same defense that managed to limit an with , and Mohamed Sanu to only one touchdown. They’ve been impressive all year long but thanks to , and a few others, this unit has put itself on the map.

They have yet to face an offense like the ones we witnessed on such an amazing Monday Night between the and , but we’ll see if this defense can take the next step when they line up against and company a week from now.

For now, all eyes are on the Redskins. Forget about Colt McCoy being QB1… Washington’s is seriously injured. Their two offensive guards are not even on the active anymore. Trent Williams is listed as questionable for today’s game although Ty Neskhe did a great job last week versus the Texans.

The Cowboys’ front seven is a real, legitimate threat for such a week offensive line and a backup . Prior to his injury versus the Texans, Smith was sacked three times during the game. Colt McCoy was sacked twice. Allowing five in total, the OL better get ready for DeMarcus Lawrence, and company. Don’t be surprised if McCoy is sacked five or six times today.

Leighton Vander Esch and continue to be a dominant presence from sideline to sideline and the , despite a few struggling players, has been successful with at .

Overall, this defense should have a great day against a weak team like the Redskins. In fact, this should be a blowout for the Cowboys. I’m talking about a scoreboard similar to the one we saw when Dallas played the earlier in the year.

The defense will perform. The unit is just too talented not to against an injury-plagued team like Washington. It will continue to shine throughout the year as the Cowboys make a push for the . The relevant question mark is whether or not the offense will be consistent enough to win tomorrow. If they want the East title, it’s now or never.
