Redskins vs. Cowboys – 1st Half analysis.
- The Cowboys drove the field on the opening possession, and had no trouble going up 7-0. The Redskins defense had more missed tackles on the drive.
- The Redskins started the game in a no-huddle offense and had some success, as the Redskins drove to the red zone. However, a missed block by Will Montgomery led to a 4th and 1 and the Redskins kicked a field goal by Forbath.
- The defenses are taking control of the game, as both offenses are having drives stalled.
- Rookie TE Jordan Reed is having some success early for the Redskins, and has shown no issue with his thigh injury.
- RGIII is getting multiple receivers involved on the offense, and the offense looks good, but they need to sustain drives.
- RGIII is looking as mobile as he has so far this season. He has been scrambling well and is showing good mobility in the pocket.
- However, besides Griffin’s scrambles, the Redskins running game is not having much success. It seems the way Alfred Morris had so much success last season, the Cowboys have made it a point to stop him this time..
- DeMarco Murray has left the game with a leg injury. This could a big blow to the Cowboys offense, but we’ll see just how much as the game unfolds.
- DeMarcus Ware has also gone out with an injury, it’s unknown if he’ll return.
- The Cowboys get a punt return for a touchdown, after a penalty on the Redskins forced a re-kick. That was a major turn of events, as the first punt had pinned the Cowboys deep.
- Terrible time management on the last drive by the Redskins. Should have used a timeout.
- The redskins end up with a field goal and go in at halftime down 14-6.
