disappointing offense? The Cowboys’ season opener in Carolina came and went Color Rush Connor Williams Jersey , and Dallas left the field with a 16-8 loss. The main talking point around the game was how terrible the Cowboys’ offense was. Naturally, the losses of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten were expected to present an adjustment period for the passing game, and Travis Frederick’s absence leaves a big, bearded hole in the offensive line no matter how well Joe Looney may have played. The Cowboys still have a lot of offensive weapons, though, the biggest being Ezekiel Elliott. He only carried the ball 15 times and got 69 yards off of it, with a touchdown on a well-executed speed option play. Dak Prescott, who spent most of the summer refining his footwork and mechanics as this offense was reshaped to become more “Dak-friendly,” struggled mightily. When he didn’t have defenders breathing down his neck (he was sacked six times) he was under-throwing receivers or not picking out the open receivers. He averaged 5.9 yards per pass attempt and failed to score aside from his scramble for a two-point conversion. From a play-calling perspective, offensive coordinator Scott Linehan started things off with a very diverse selection of plays: screens, bootlegs, split zones Youth Tyron Smith Jersey , and much more. The problem was that most of it didn’t work, or that the plays were negated by penalties. Things started picking up later on when Linehan began calling more conservative and traditional types of plays, but also when he started to spread the Carolina defense out. Nevertheless, an offense with so much potential was limited to eight points and 232 total yards of offense. So we ask the question:Cowboys vs. Giants 2018 Week 2 game: How to watch, game time, TV schedule, online streaming, radio The Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants get together on Sunday night for a good old-fashioned NFC East rivalry game. This game takes on even greater importance as both teams are trying to avoid the dreaded 0-2 start. We’ve noted how a team’s playoff chances drop significantly when they start 0-2 (roughly 11 % chance of making it), so this is a huge game for both organizations.The Cowboys are facing a crisis of confidence with their offense. Only scoring eight points in the season-opener will do that as both Dak Prescott and his offensive line had issues. Prescott will look to rebound and finally overcome a nine-game slump that goes all the way back to the Atlanta game in the 2017 season. Fortunately, the Cowboys defense looks strong, holding Carolina to 16 points in the opener, and generally harassing the Panthers offense outside of Cam Newton with some big runs. This week they need to deal with an array of skill position weapons that the Giants possess. To stop them Color Rush Allen Hurns Jersey , they will try and beat a below-average offensive line and punish Eli Manning.What You Need To KnowImportant links: Cowboys depth chart | RosterDate: September 16th, 2018Game time: 8:20 PM ESTLocation: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TXTV channel: NBCCoverage Map: 506 SportsAnnouncers:Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, Michele Tafoya (Field reporter)Radio: 105.3 The Fan | Full listings | Westwood One | SIRIUS: 81 (NYG), 83 (Dal) | XM: 226 (NYG), 225 (Dal)Streaming: NFL.com GamePass (audio only during game), NBC Sports online, Yahoo Sports appCowboys record: (0-1)Giants record: (0-1)Odds: Dallas -2.5Prediction: Dallas 27 - New York 20Enemy blog: Big Blue ViewTwitter: @BloggingTheBoysFacebook: Please Like us!
