Redskins @ Giants 1:00 FOX
This game is about two teams trending in the wrong direction. The Giants defense is better than I thought it would be and their offense may not be as good as I thought it would be. It’s still early and I expect them to turn it around. The Redskins on the other hand are a complete mess. A true dumpster fire. The locker room is a mess and the offense and coaching staff might have turned on Kirk Cousins. This team actually reminds me of the 2015 Eagles. They seem like a collection of talent where that talent isn’t necessarily used right. See Demarco Murray and Josh Norman. The Giants are probably the last team the Skins want to face at this point. I’m sure they wish they had the Bears to bounce back. I see the trend continuing and the Giants getting to 3-0.

This is easy. The Bears are the worst team in the league. Yes, worse than the Browns. The Cowboys will be 2-1 and will win the game going away by 17 points. Dak Prescott has played well. His numbers won’t blow you away. He doesn’t have any touchdown passes be he’s commanding the offense and putting his team in position. Zeke Elliott has struggled so far. He had trouble holding onto the football against the Redskins. This could be a nice bounce back for him against a Bears defense in which injuries have decimated the unit.
No moves this week.
