Another week, another win in the NFC East for the Cowboys. Dallas defeated Washington comfortably, 31-21 on the road.
Dak Prescott was the star of the show again, throwing for 269 yards and three touchdowns. This week for the Cowboys is the dreadful Miami Dolphins. To say the Dolphins have been bad to start the season would be an understatement.
Here is a profile on the 2019 Miami Dolphins.
Losses: Baltimore Ravens 59-10, New England Patriots 43-0
Key Players: All traded away
(Honestly, not sure expanding on this topic is really necessary.)
Where do we even begin with this team? Before the season even started, they traded away tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills, two of their best offensive weapons, to the Houston Texans. Then, they traded their first-round pick from last season, Minkah Fitzpatrick, to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
This surely has to be the earliest and most obvious tank job in the history of the NFL. Their point differential of -92 is 60 points more than the second-worst. Their offense only has 384 total yards through two games. To put into perspective how bad that is, Dak threw for 405 yards against the New York Giants. Everything that could be wrong with a football team, is wrong with the Miami Dolphins.
Will the Cowboys Win?
This question is almost an insult to the Cowboys and their entire organization. The bigger question is: Can they cover the 22.5 (via Covers.com) points they are favored by? If they don’t, I would be very shocked.
This game may be a glorified scrimmage and with teams like the Saints, Packers, and Eagles coming up, the Cowboys should make sure that everyone is staying healthy.
