Washington will likely be down two major players when the Dallas Cowboys visit in Week 2

NFL: Washington Redskins at Philadelphia Eagles James Lang-USA TODAY Sports

This week’s Cowboys opponent is a bit beat up.

Life is good for the Dallas Cowboys. They are 1-0 and have two not-so-intimidating games staring at them over the next two weeks. The opportunity to get to 3-0 is certainly one people want to see taken.

Dallas will be on the road in Washington in Week 2 and they’ll be taking on a team that blew a 17-0 lead to the Philadelphia Eagles (argh). Washington is a struggling franchise and their own head coach is upset about his running back situation, but he’s probably more sad considering that they’ll likely be down two major players this week. Things don’t look so promising for either Jonathan Allen or Derrius Guice to play.

Things already felt promising for the Cowboys this Sunday, but football is a tricky game. Just when you think someone has all the reason in the world to win the game laughs in your face and flips everything upside down.

While there are no guarantees it certainly bodes well for the Cowboys that Washington will likely be without these players. They’re a team that is struggling and now they’re down two starting players.
