Week 2: at Washington Redskins

All TE vs WAS

FBG says: Great matchup. Kellen Moore's first game calling the plays for the Dallas Cowboys' offense was one of the most hyper-efficient passing days in recent NFL history. Dak Prescott finished the game completing 25 of 32 passes for 405 yards and 4 touchdowns en route to a perfect 158.3 passer rating. Dallas' aerial attack maximized efficiency by utilizing play-action on 43.8 percent of its pass attempts, the second-highest rate in the NFL. As expected, Amari Cooper opened the season as Dak Prescott's favorite target. Cooper commanded 9 targets, hauling in 6 receptions for 106 yards and 1 touchdown in week one. Michael Gallup also emerged as a beneficiary of Dallas' revamped passing attack, as he caught all 7 of his targets for 158 yards on the day against the New York Giants. Behind the clear top two wide receivers, Randall Cobb slotted in for the recently-departed Cole Beasley. Cobb played almost exclusively from the slot in week one, and that will continue to be his role throughout the season. At tight end, Jason Witten and Blake Jarwin both found the end zone in the season opener. In the trenches, the Cowboys' offensive line proved to be every bit as formidable as expected in week one. Reintroducing All-Pro center Travis Frederick into the fold bolstered a unit that already ranked amongst the league's best. Overall, Dallas' passing attack showed signs of life in week one that far exceeded anything this offense produced in previous years thanks to Kellen Moore's more modern play-calling. The Washington Redskins got picked apart in week one by Carson Wentz and the Eagles offense. When all was said and done, Wentz finished the game with 313 yards, 3 touchdowns, 0 interceptions, and he was sacked just 1 time. None of these numbers signal anything resembling a strong performance from Washington's defense. Coming off a season in which the Redskins fielded a firmly-league-average pass defense, this season has the makings of a far different story. Two of the most notable newcomers to Washington's defense, Jon Bostic and Landon Collins, struggled mightily in coverage duties throughout the game in week one. Bostic has long been a liability in coverage, and he is replacing one of the NFL's best coverage linebackers, Zach Brown, in this defense. Landon Collins' poor performance, on the other hand, is startling. Collins was signed as the highest-paid safety in the NFL following a string of strong coverage seasons, but week one of 2019 was an entirely different story. Collins was unable to force an incompletion on any of the six targets he faced in coverage. Washington's pass rush was unable to break through Philadelphia's stout pass protection to disrupt the pocket with consistency in week one, and they will be without Jonathan Allen for the foreseeable future. Allen injured his MCL early in the game, and he will be replaced by a rotation of interior defensive linemen including Tim Settle, Caleb Brantley, and Treyvon Hester. No matter how the snaps get distributed amongst these three, one thing holds true: there will be a significant drop off in production from Allen to his replacement. Washington's pass defense without Fabian Moreau struggled against one of the league's stronger passing attacks in week one, in large part due to their inability to disrupt the pocket. If Moreau is out again, the Redskins will be forced to rely once again on 7th round rookie Jimmy Moreland. If they get Moreau back from an ankle injury, this defense will see an upgrade, but as of now is one that could be in for a long day.
