Well, it is finally here. Game one. The Cowboys will spend a long day waiting for the local Washington kickoff at 8:20 pm (7:20 pm Dallas time) and Wade says his most important rule on these night games is to tell the guys to stay off their feet. In other words, lay around and watch football.
It will be interesting to see how the Cowboys fare in the running game tonight. Look for Barber to start, but Felix Jones to get plenty of carries. As I said on the radio Friday, I’m betting on Dez Bryant to return punts and AOA to return kickoffs. Bryant will have at least 5 catches. Just my prediction.
Key matchup? - Rookie LT Trent Williams vs. DeMarcus Ware. Williams is supposed to be the real deal, but I have a feeling Ware will make his presence known. He did not get his first sack last year until game 5. Not this year.
Once again, I’m going with Dallas 17-10.
