Novaceck's Sunday Night picks:
Redskins (0-1) at Cowboys (0-1)
This is shaping up to be an interesting season for the Redskins. They were playing well at the end of last season, but they fell flat in their opening loss to the Vikings.
The Cowboys, meanwhile, didn’t play well against the Jaguars. Drew Bledsoe’s three interceptions killed them. He’s great when he gets time to throw, but he struggles when a defense gets pressure on him. He needs to overcome that as a quarterback, because other players on the Cowboys say he’s incredibly accurate with the ball when he gets time.
Washington should be better than what it showed in the first game. It played well on defense but struggled to run the ball.
If the Redskins can put pressure on Bledsoe, they will win. This is a referendum on how well the Dallas offensive line plays. The Cowboys need to establish a rushing attack to keep heat off Bledsoe. Pick: Redskins
