How ‘Bout Them, Cowboys?
The Dallas Cowboys looked like a superior team in Week 1 against the New York Giants in arguably one of the best overall performances by a group. The Cowboys not only won, but they also covered the spread by a mile and will do so again Week 2 in Washington.
Last week, Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore had the offense finding mismatches, and Dak Prescott looked like a man ready for his payday. He tossed a career-high four touchdown passes, and Ezekiel Elliot proved his worth with a modest 53 yards and a score in limited work. The good times continue on the road against another division rival.
The Redskins showed promise early but ended up falling to the Philadelphia Eagles, and this game won’t be any more forgiving against the Cowboys.
Look for the Dallas Cowboys to win and cover the -4.5 spread in Week 2. The only worry on the Redskins side could be ageless veteran running back Adrian Peterson making his 2019 season debut.
The Bolts Will Strike in The Motor City
The Los Angeles Chargers held their faux home-field advantage against the Indianapolis Colts last week 30-26 and didn’t need Melvin Gordon to do so. Austin Ekeler scored a trio of touchdowns to help Philip Rivers and company start the year off on the right note.
The Detroit Lions, however, started 2019 off on an odd note as they fought to a tie with the Arizona Cardinals at 27-27.
Look for Rivers, Ekeler, Keenan Allen and the Chargers to get to 2-0 and send the Lions to a winless 0-1-1 in Week 2.
AFC West Shootout by the Bay
The Kansas City Chiefs are a well-oiled machine on offense, and regardless of an injured Tyreek Hill, there will be no shortage of points Sunday in Oakland. Patrick Mahomes will find Sammy Watkins and rookie Mecole Hardman, along with Travis Kelce plenty to help make this a high-scoring affair.
The Oakland Raiders looked solid with Derek Carr and a young and growing offense Week 1 against the Denver Broncos so that the points could come on the losing side as well. Expect the Chiefs to win this one, and also expect a lite up the scoreboard in this Week 2 AFC West matchup.
