From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 9): McLaurin was a Week 1 revelation after a strong summer. He got free for a second long score but was overthrown by Case Keenum or he would have rivaled Sammy Watkins for the biggest Week 1 score among wide receivers. He could slow down if Dallas answers the bell better than the Eagles did, but McLaurin is still looking good with his college quarterback waiting in the wings.

Week 2: vs Dallas Cowboys

All WR vs DAL

FBG says: Bad matchup. The Washington Redskins the season with one of the league's weakest group of pass-catchers. In week one, Case Keenum posted an impressive final stat line, but his performance as a passer does not quite match up with the yardage numbers. Keenum ultimately finished with 380 yards, 3 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions on the day, but context matters in this situation. Keenum's first touchdown came on an impressive catch-and-run from veteran tight end Vernon Davis, and his final score came on a 75-yard drive in pure garbage time when the Eagles were in full-blown prevent defense. At wide receiver, Terry McLaurin proved to have the requisite combination of speed and route-running ability to be a successful wide receiver in the NFL. McLaurin led all wide receivers with 5 catches on 7 targets for 125 yards and a 69-yard touchdown in the opener. Trey Quinn and Paul Richardson round out Washington's starting group of wide receivers, but neither was impressive by any means. As previously mentioned, Vernon Davis should continue to fill in at tight end while Jordan Reed recovers from a concussion. In week one, Davis proved he still has some gas left in the tank on his previously-mentioned 48-yard touchdown reception, but aside from this single play, Davis offered little support through the air. Washington's third-down running back, Chris Thompson racked up 10 targets as Case Keenum's safety valve in week one. Thompson will continue to see heavy passing-down usage in the absence of Derrius Guice, who will miss at least a few weeks with a knee injury. Lastly, up front, the Redskins' offensive line turned in a slightly below-average performance in week one, which is to be expected given the unit's general lack of talent while Trent Williams holds-out awaiting a move out of Washington D.C. The outlook for Washington's passing attack is bleak given the general scarcity of talent across the board. The Dallas Cowboys dominated at home against the New York Giants in week one. New York struggled to move the ball on Dallas' deep and balanced defense. Eli Manning tallied 306 passing yards and just 1 touchdown on the day thanks to a pass-heavy game script as the Giants unsuccessfully attempted to mount a comeback. Dallas' defense played a strong and well-rounded game, as expected, in the opener thanks to both the pass rush and coverage units. In the trenches, Joe Jackson and Demarcus Lawrence each had big days off the edge with 3 and 4 pressures, respectively. On the interior, Maliek Collins also contributed 3 pressures himself. The depth of Dallas' defensive line ensured that no matter who rotated in or out of the game, the Cowboys were still able to disrupt the pocket and force Eli Manning to make difficult throws. Dallas' secondary also turned in a stellar performance on the day. Third-year player Jourdan Lewis was the standout of this unit as he allowed only one reception in 27 coverage snaps. In week one, the Cowboys limited Byron Jones to just 23 coverage snaps as he returns from offseason hip surgery. The All-Pro cornerback did not allow a single reception against the Giants in week one, and he is expected to see the field for more snaps against Washington in week two. Dallas fields one of the deepest defenses in the entire NFL, and they are entering week two even stronger than week one. Passing against this team will be challenging all season, but it may be hardest here early in the season when the unit is closest to full-strength.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs PHI (7 / 5 / 125 / 1 rec)

Terry McLaurin had his way with the Eagles secondary today. His speed was alarming as a lid-lifter in Gruden's offense. Terry was able to get behind the defense for a sixty-eight yard bomb in the first half as he burned the Eagles on a deep post route. Case overthrew him on a potential 2nd touchdown in the third quarter. He had five total receptions which indicates he may be a player the count on moving forward. His speed and explosive ability downfield will be utilized to offset the intermediate passing game. The coaching staff did a good job scheming up deep shots to him. Today proved he can be dangerous as a deep threat for Washington's offense.
