Washington’s Magic Race Should Be Concerned With Cowboys Fans – Lauren Barash, The Landry Hat
Washington is currently on a certified success streak.
Here’s What Cowboys Fans Need To Know About Washington Football’s Miraculous Four-Game Winning Streak
Their victories may not be pretty, but they are happening. Everything head coach Ron Rivera told his team over the week off has clearly worked.
The four-game winning streak began when Washington defeated defending Tampa Bay Buccaneers champions 29-19. Even though they had lost many players to injury, Washington understood it. Even after losing Chase Young, the Washington defense managed to keep Tampa Bay’s impressive offense to a season-low 273 yards. They also intercepted MVP frontman Tom Brady twice.
In Week 11, Heinicke eclipsed Cam Newton in a 27-21 win over the Carolina Panthers. Terry McLaurin also assisted the offense, contributing 103 of 369 total rushing yards for the Washington football team. Once the replacement for Newton, Heinicke asserted himself as a potential threat, making 16 of 22 passes for 206 yards and three touchdowns.
The following week, Washington defeated the Seattle Seahawks 17-15 in a must-see game for both teams. Once again, this victory was not a pretty one. There were several turnovers, an extra point kick blocked for two runs and the loss of another player, as JD McKissic was taken off the field in the fourth quarter. Still, despite all that, they still released a W.
Randy Gregory & Neville Gallimore Get Close To Comeback – Rob Phillips, DallasCowboys.com
It looks more and more like the Cowboys will have new pieces on the defensive line.
The club are optimistic that Gregory and Gallimore will return from the reserve / injured for Sunday’s road game in Washington, Cowboys director of operations Stephen Jones told 105.3 The Fan on Monday.
“They’ve had a good few weeks and they’re going to take another step this week with full workouts,” Jones said. “Unless there’s a setback, which we certainly don’t expect, we’re preparing them to play in the game. But they must certainly continue to improve, which they have done every step of the way. But they have to finish all the work, that is, the full preparation for the game against the Washington football team. “
Gallimore started their 21-day IR training window last week. A screened starter at training camp, the second-year tackle has missed all 12 games since dislocating his elbow in preseason.
Gregory is second in defense with five sacks in seven games. He has missed the last three games with calf strain.
Lawrence was productive in his first appearance since Game 1 of the season, recording two tackles, two assists and a quarterback touchdown in just over half of the defensive snaps against the Saints (37 of 70).
And defensive tackle Trysten Hill will return this week from a one-game NFL suspension for punching Raiders offensive lineman John Simpson immediately following the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving loss to Las Vegas.
Cowboys at Football Team: Why Sunday’s game will dictate how the rest of the Cowboys’ season unfolds – Matt Holleran, Blogging The Boys
This streak is important to NFC East and its positioning in the playoffs.
The Cowboys are about to be as close to their full power as they have been for some time. Randy Gregory and Neville Gallimore look set to return on Sunday, so the Dallas defense will play a full deck of cards for the first time this year.
At almost full power, there are no more excuses. It’s time to get this thing back on track.
Of course Washington is playing better football right now, but there’s no question who the better team overall. The Cowboys are more talented in almost every position on the court. But as we’ve seen far too many times before, it doesn’t mean much if you can’t translate it into big wins.
If this really is the team we all thought were back in the first half of the season, they come into Washington and deal a devastating blow to the searing Washington football team.
Either way, the outcome of Sunday’s game will define how the rest of the Cowboys’ season unfolds. Good or bad, we’ll know everything there is to know about this team next Sunday.
Duke Coach Search: Cowboys George Edwards top contenders to succeed David Cutcliffe – Patrik Walker, CBSSports.com
The Cowboys have so much coaching talent on this list.
Edwards was once responsible for leading a perennial Top 10 defense for the Minnesota Vikings under Mike Zimmer and was a favorite in 2020 to land the defensive coordinator position in Dallas before the Cowboys pivoted to Dan Quinn and n ‘Then assign Edwards a larger role on Quinn’s staff, one that involves the hands-on training of a linebacker corps led by rookie phenomenon Micah Parsons. The 54-year-old also sparked interest last year from the Chicago Bears, who were hoping he would consider taking on the role of defensive coordinator at Windy City, but he didn’t.
As one of football’s most respected defensive minds, with a resumé to back it up, Edwards would seem like a no-brainer if the Blue Devils focus on him as the man who can take his alma mater to the higher level. Duke broke an overall record of 3-9 this season and finished 0-8 in the ACC game.
The next hire must be a home run to replace Cutcliffe, who finished 77-97 (35-79 ACC) in 14 seasons but had four years in which he won eight or more games at Duke.
The Dallas Cowboys mismanage Ezekiel Elliott. How it hurts him and the team | Opinion – Clarence E. Hill Jr., Fort Worth Star-Telegram
Zeke’s situation is getting a little crazy.
The team’s public refusal to acknowledge that Elliott is clearly not himself makes matters worse.
He can’t jump cut, he can barely cut and run without juice.
This was most evident last month when he had the worst four consecutive running days of his career with 14 carries for 41 yards in a 43-3 win over the Atlanta Falcons, 9 for 32 in a loss. 19-9 against the Kansas City Chiefs. , 9 for 25 in a 36-33 overtime loss to the Las Vegas Raiders and 13 for 45 in Thursday’s 27-17 victory over the New Orleans Saints.
It’s the worst four-game streak of its six seasons that includes two floor titles.
Elliott’s limits were fully visible on a 10-yard run against the Saints when he turned the corner and limped out of bounds, intact.
Yet owner Jerry Jones continues to be misleading about what Elliott faces.
“I didn’t see what you’re referring to,” Jones said. “I saw a solid defense against the New Orleans race without a doubt. No, I’m really – I’m healthy from where I am. His coaches, the people closest to his health, to his medical situation, they think he’s really ready to go.
Cowboys plan to return for McCarthy on Thursday – David Helman, DallasCowboys.com
The Cowboys lead man is expected to be back by the end of the week.
It’s a little shocking to think that it’s only been a week since McCarthy tested positive for COVID-19. The news came as the Cowboys were already well into their preparation for Thursday night’s game in New Orleans, following a dramatic overtime loss at Thanksgiving.
With all the twists and turns of a wild November, it feels like an eternity. But it’s true that McCarthy still has a few days of testing to clear the NFL’s comeback protocols.
Asked about it on Friday, McCarthy said he wasn’t sure on a specific timeline, but added he didn’t like watching the 27-17 win over the Saints from a distance.
“This is not the way you want to pass one of these 17 guaranteed opportunities to you,” he said. “It was tough. I’m proud of the team. I can’t wait to get back to work in person.
As for the team itself, the Cowboys returned to work Monday morning after an extended weekend, as they begin to prepare for a divisional clash against Washington.
Until he’s cleared to return, it looks like they can expect McCarthy to be there every step of the way, as he was last week.
