How the Cowboys and Commanders Matchup in 2022

Quarterback: Cowboys

The Dak Prescott vs. debate was settled long ago, with the former coming out on top.

Running Backs: Cowboys

The Commanders have a solid duo in and J.D. McKissic. However, the pair of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard trumps them.

Elliott and Pollard combined for 2,834 all-purpose yards and 15 touchdowns compared to just 1,940 combined yards and 14 touchdowns for Gibson and McKissic. Both Elliott and Pollard could arguably start for Washington as well.

Linebackers: Cowboys

As with the Eagles linebackers, Micah Parsons by himself is better than the Commanders’ entire group. is solid, and Jamin Davis can be better, but Parsons is miles clear of both.

Having Leighton Vander Esch doesn’t hurt either, as he’s arguably better than Holcomb. In short, the Cowboys certainly have the better LB group.

Secondary: Cowboys

The Commanders have a good duo in and William Jackson. Kamren Curl is one of the league’s most underrated safeties, too.
