NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Redskins



Cowboys QB Dak Prescott spoke highly of the job the front office has done and the “very intelligent, very football-smart” players they have. 

“Honestly, this whole offense, I don’t know if I credit the front office or credit them individually, but a lot of our guys are cerebral,” Prescott said, via The Athletic. “A lot of our guys are very intelligent, very football-smart. And that allows me to play a lot faster, to know that everything we’ve talked about throughout the week, on Sunday, when I say it once, I don’t have to worry about giving it to them again because they’ve prepared. They’ve studied. It means just as much to them as it means to me. It allows you to play faster. I think everything has been evidence of that.

Amari Cooper figures to draw plenty of attention against the Patriots on Sunday, but he’s confident in Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb‘s ability to capitalize. 

“We have a lot of guys that can make plays,” Cooper said. “If they try to take me away and just focus on me, I don’t think that would be the wisest approach because you saw what (Michael) Gallup and (Randall) Cobb did last week. They both put up over 100 yards. If they do try to take me away, we have other guys who can make plays.



  • Mike Garafolo of NFL Media explains that interim HC Bill Callahan is the one in charge of the Redskins’ rushing attack while OC Kevin O’Connell is the one tasked with the passing game
  • According to Garafolo, there isn’t great communication flowing the Redskins’ offense right now and while Washington reportedly put in a package of plays for rookie QB Dwayne Haskins, the team’s offensive attack has largely been disjointed.
  • As for the video of Haskins asking the offensive line “what can I do,” Garafolo says it was just frustration boiling over from the rookie quarterback.
