The Cowboys got their 2020 season started off on the wrong foot in losing their opener against the LA Rams, 20-17 while failing to cover the spread as a small, 1-point road dog. The Cowboys were then ‘gifted’ a 40-39 win over Atlanta in Week 2 as the Falcons completely collapsed — after getting out to a 20-0 first-quarter start.
Dak Prescott passed for 450 yards with one touchdown while adding three rushing scores to become the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for more than 400 yards while rushing for three touchdowns. Ezekiel Elliott added 89 rushing yards and one score as Dallas avoided an 0-2 start.
“Obviously, way better than starting 0-2, but going 1-1, and having a lot of confidence after we put ourselves in such a big hole,” Prescott said. “We just stayed at it, and everybody believes in each other. That was huge in so many ways.”
The Cowboys are ranked second in total offense, third in passing, 11th in rushing and 10th in scoring (28.5 ppg). Defensively, the ‘Boys are ranked 25th overall, 25th against the pass, 21st against the run, and 25th in points allowed (29.5 ppg).
Rookie wide receiver CeeDee Lamb has gotten off to a solid start by catching 11 passes for 165 yards.

Lamb had six receptions against the Falcons for 106 yards while catching his second, 30-yard, plus

The Seahawks kicked off their 2020 season by cashing in as a 1-point road dog in their 38-25 Week 1 win at Atlanta. Seattle had a tougher time against New England in Week 2, but still managed to scratch out a hard-fought 35-30 win as Russell Wilson went 21-for-28 for 288 yards with five touchdowns and one interception. Despite his heroics and MVP caliber play, it was their much-maligned defense that led Seattle to victory by stopping Patriots quarterback Cam Newton at the 1-yard line on the game’s final play.
“It’s an extraordinary moment for football players and for a team. You either come through or you don’t,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of the late stop. “There’s so much intensity in that moment. The guys on the field will never forget it.”
While the Cowboys played in front of 21,708 fans in their home opener, Seattle’s CenturyLink Field, was empty in Seattle’s Week 2 win.
“You missed the fun of it all,” Wilson said. “This game is meant to be played in front of thousands and thousands of people, it’s so special.”
While Super Bowl champ Patrick Mahomes and reigning MVP Lamar Jackson got the vast majority of national media attention when it comes to the quarterback position, it is Wilson that has looked like the best quarterback in all of football in the early stages of the 2020 campaign. Now, in his ninth season, Wilson has thrown for 610 yards with nine TD passes and one interception while compiling a stupendous 140.0 passer rating. Wilson has added 68 rushing yards while averaging an impressive 8.5 yards per carry and has the early lead in the league’s MVP race.
Half-Man, Half Amazin’
While it looks utterly ridiculous now, the fact of the matter is that a ton of NFL teams passed on now, second-year wide receiver DK Metcalf in last year’s NFL draft for some completely insane reasons. Some NFL GMs and other notable league ‘experts’ claimed the 6-foot-4, 229-pound former Ole Miss wideout was ‘too big’ to play the position while others suggested he should move to tight end, Metcalf has proven them all wrong. The 64th overall pick in last year’s draft has eight catches for 187 yards and two touchdowns while averaging a stellar 23.4 yards per catch (second). Metcalf has pretty much been half-man, half amazin’ through two weeks.

Tight end Greg Olsen is struggling as he gets set for Week 3. The veteran has been targeted five times and has just four catches for 24 yards. Olsen also dropped a perfect Wilson pass early last week that was then caught out of mid-air for a Pick-Six. Fellow tight end Will Dissly is also playing some subpar football with a modest three catches for 17 yards.
