Washington Redskins @ Dallas Cowboys Mon. Sept. 26, 2011 8:30 p.m. EST
Last week’s Monday Night Football matchup between the St. Louis Rams and the New York Giants was about a boring as it gets in terms of games that are nationally televised, but in Week 3 the Washington Redskins will go head-to-head against the arch rival Dallas Cowboys in what could be an extremely entertaining showdown that will have playoff implications at season’s end.
The Washington Redskins have been arguably one of the biggest surprises thus far this season with unlikely starting quarterback Rex Grossman leading the way for Mike Shanahan and company. Not only do the Redskins have an undefeated record on the line in Week 3 (2-0), but this game could be huge for Washington if they come out with the win.
One of the Cowboys major concerns in Week 3 will be the playing status of superstar quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant. At this point in time, Bryant looks like he will be given the green light, but Romo’s status is still up in the air as he could very well be watching from the bench with a broken rib and punctured lung.
If Tony Romo is good to go and doesn’t miss a beat with the injuries, I believe the Dallas Cowboys should cruise to victory, but if not the edge definitely has to go to the Washington Redskins.
As of right now, the spread is even for this game due to pending injuries, but if Romo and Bryant are good to go the spread will almost certainly lean in the Cowboys favor for Monday Night Football. If not, the Redskins will be given the edge.
Personally, I believe the Dallas Cowboys are the better all-around team, but if they aren’t healthy they won’t be able to compete with a Washington Redskins team that is ready for a breakout year.
