Random thoughts about the game on Sunday night:
A glaring issue with the first meeting on Thanksgiving was Washington's ability to generate pressure on the defensive line with only rushing four and even three players.
At times, it seemed like the Skins had 25 players on defense, while Dallas only had 5 on offense.
Why was Washington successful with generating pressure on Romo? Without DeMarco Murray, the Dallas offense is just a shell of itself. With the Cowboys now having the threat of a running game, I expect to see less pressure on Romo come Sunday night.
On the defensive side of the ball, I expect to see a pretty even mix of man and zone coverage. With RGIII not being 100%, he won't be so inclined to make plays with his feet and leave the pocket so soon.
The dangerous aspect of playing man against mobile QB's like RGIII is the possibility of the quarterback stepping up or out of the pocket and making big plays by himself. However, Washington's wide receivers aren't elite by any means, so with RGIII not completely healthy, I think we'll see a decent amount of man coverage on Sunday, with some zone mixed in as well.
P.S. just purchased tickets to the game! Anybody tailgating or doing the travel club thing?
