What went right for Dallas in the opening day loss? Starting quarterback Dak Prescott played well, the offensive line showed they’ve got something for opposing defenses in 2021 and running back Ezekiel Elliott appears to have recovered from his abysmal 2020 season. Elliott didn’t show it on the stat sheet, as the Cowboys’ rushing attack was stymied by the Buccaneers’ defense, but he did make the most of the few holes he had and blocked well picking up blitzes.

What can the Cowboys expect from the Chargers in week 2? They’re coming off a 20-16 win over Cowboys’ division opponent Washington, in a game where Chargers’ starting quarterback Justin Herbert passed for 337 yards and went 31 of 47 with one touchdown and one interception. This was against a Washington defense that’s arguably one of the best in the league. But Los Angeles was able to move the ball seemingly at will against that defense and dominate the time of possession 36:03 – 23:57.

The Cowboys’ defense will have their hands full while the offense may have difficulty moving the ball on the ground once again. Let’s discuss!
