Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 4 vs NO (16 / 26 / 246 / 1 / 0 pass, 3 / 5 / 0 rush)

Despite the quality stat line, Weeden had an up-and-down game in New Orleans. He was accurate with short throws but missed too many routine throws when well-protected. Terrance Williams came wide open on a go route in the end zone, which Weeden missed with an overthrow in the first quarter. Later, Weeden again overthrew Jason Witten on third down and held the ball on third down for a sack in the red zone resulting in a field goal. Finally with the game on line in the closing minutes, Weeden put a drive on his back. The Dallas offensive line provides outstanding protection and Weeden worked the offense straight down the field, culminating in a perfect sideline throw to Terrance Williams for the score. Weeden continues to be a limiting factor on offense and the lack of Dez Bryant's playmaking ability is sorely missed.

2015 Week 3 vs ATL (22 / 26 / 232 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

The early game script and execute for Brandon Weeden's first start in Dallas was perfect against Atlanta. The offensive line dominated and Joseph Randle fueled the run game to a 21-7 lead. Weeden operated off play-action and was accurate on underneath routes en route to four touchdowns on six first half drives. The lone blemish for Weeden was an ill-advised throw across his body while rolling left, an easy interception for roaming Atlanta safety William Moore. As Atlanta's offense turned unstoppable down the stretch, Weeden needed to shift from game manager and lead protector to play-maker. Weeden was not up to the task as he missed Jason Witten down the seam in the third quarter and took a sack on a critical third down later in the second half. As the game slipped away, Weeden's mistakes continued. Down 11 points Weeden continued to check the ball down and even slid down in-bounds instead of throwing the ball away to stop the clock. What looked to be a comfortable win after the opening few possessions in Dallas, turned into a double-digit loss due to Brandon Weeden and the struggles of Dallas' defense against the Falcons.

2015 Week 2 vs PHI (7 / 7 / 73 / 1 / 0 pass, 3 / 7 / 0 rush)

With the injury to Tony Romo against the Eagles Brandon Weeden took over in the middle of the third quarter. The Dallas offense was salting the game away with a lead and minimal pressure from the struggling Eagles offense. Weeden was efficient in his limited time under center as Dallas centered on the run game. Weeden's highlight throw came versus a third down blitz, finding Terrance Williams with inside position on a slant route, breaking away to the end zone. The long catch-and-run iced the game. Weeden is now the Dallas starter with Romo out for a significant portion of the regular season and will be without Dez Bryant. Expect a run foundation as the Cowboys look to weather the storm.

Cowboys | Brandon Weeden to throw deeper? (Sat Oct 3, 03:13 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden is expected to make deeper pass attempts, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. Jones said Weeden will need to play less conservatively and threaten defenses more downfield, or the Cowboys will continue to see more pressure in the box.

Cowboys | Brandon Weeden needs to throw deep more (Sat Oct 3, 11:50 AM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden needs to try to more deep passes because opponents may have more players close to the line of scrimmage if he continues with short passes, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones. Weeden has attempted only two passes of at least 15 yards and has not been able to compete either pass. His passes are traveling only an average of 4.8 yards per attempt, which is the lowest average in the NFL.

Our View: Dumping off 10 passes to RB Lance Dunbar each game is not going to strike fear into the hearts of opponents. Weeden could get more comfortable as he starts more games with the Cowboys. We're not expecting much though, no matter how comfortable he gets.

Cowboys | Brandon Weeden plays it safe (Mon Sep 28, 01:05 AM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Brandon Weeden completed 22 of his 26 pass attempts for 232 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.

Our View: Zero surprise here. The Cowboys wisely leaned on their rushing attack on Sunday. Expect that going forward.
