    The Brady Report: Cowboys Offense Dominant Despite Slow Start

    The followed up their dominant performance last week with yet another blowout divisional win on Sunday, defeating the Washington Redskins 31-21.

    While the Cowboys controlled the game for much of the last three quarters, they actually got off to a slow start in Washington. Once again they fell behind to a lesser team 7-0 early, before scoring on nearly every possession to finish off the game.

    Let's get into my game notes from the Cowboys' week two win.

    • We have to start these game notes by talking about Dak Prescott. The Cowboys franchise was incredible for the second straight week to open this season. Despite the early interception, Prescott continued to look poised and calm in the pocket, allowing him to deliver a dime to for the team's first touchdown. Prescott was picking apart the Redskins during the final three quarters to the tune of 269 yards and three touchdowns. Plus, he was very effective as a runner, including his dynamic 42 yard run on third down and one with the game still tied. If Dak is going to play like this, the Cowboys can beat anyone.
    • looked a lot more comfortable Sunday than he did against the Giants. Not only were his raw numbers better, rushing for 111 yards and a touchdown, he was back to his ways of falling forward and avoiding the first tackler. He still didn't really explode the way we all know he can, which means opposing defenses should be scared when considering what the Cowboys 's full potential could be.
    • Which receiver didn't ball out Sunday? seems to be developing an awesome rapport with Prescott, continues to prove he's a legit WR1, was once again effective on swing passes and in the slot, and even Devin Smith had himself a monster game. If Devin Smith is going to be the speed deep threat he was against Washington, look out.
    • Ok, now that I've congratulated the majority of the offense, let's talk about the one guy who I'm sure would've liked to have a better day. Left . The second year guard was solid overall Sunday, but was abused by Daron Payne from time to time. Most notably, Payne went right through Williams both to force Prescott's interception and on the only sack of the game. Williams has to be better going forward, because he is the clear weak link across this dynamic right now. Luckily, as a whole, this line has been very good through two games.
    • Defensively, things could've gone better for the Cowboys. While a lot of the production through the air came through garbage time, was still too effective down the field. Chris Thompson was also getting too much YAC against these defenders. had a rough day in the slot, missing multiple tackles and not being too great in coverage either. , however, did have himself a good game in limited snaps. Both he and made impressive open field tackles on third downs.
    • The Cowboys stepped up from a week ago. The tackling of their front seven overall improved as the game went on, and they held to just 25 yards on the ground. Part of this was because of how quickly the Cowboys got to their 21-7 lead in the third quarter, but they were solid nonetheless.
    • Dallas' will benefit greatly from 's return next week against Miami. created a couple big pressures on Sunday, but Quinn's presence should help free him up a bit to create more of a consistent pass rush.
