In a dominant victory in Week 1, the Cowboys confirmed they are as good as anticipated. In Week 2, we might find out if they’re even better than that.
If analysts and gamblers are right, the Dallas Cowboys should beat the Washington Redskins handily on Sunday. It is already becoming apparent that the NFC East title should come down to the Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles, who narrowly beat the Redskins last week.
The Redskins had a surprisingly strong performance in Week 1 despite letting the game slip away in the 4th quarter. Though the team showed more fight than expected, it’s hard to see them matching up well against this Cowboys team.
Washington showed some flashes of brilliance in their loss. Rookie Terry McLaurin had five catches for 125 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Case Keenum threw for a respectable 380 yards, completing 30 of 44 attempts.
The football world expected the Cowboys to beat the Giants handily in Week 1, but the breadth of their offense was impressive. Yes, stars Amari Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott had good games. But, quarterback Dak Prescott also got receivers Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb involved in a big way. Tight ends Jason Witten and Blake Jarwin added TDs as well.
The Cowboys simply outmatch Washington in terms of offensive firepower, and there’s nothing special on the Redskins roster to offset this mismatch. If the Redskins have another weak defensive showing and accrue a slew of penalties, Dallas might blow them out early.

Cowboys vs. Redskins live stream: How to watch NFL online
1) Sling TV
- Cost: $25-$40 per month (40% off first month)
- Sling TV devices: Amazon Fire TVs, Android Fire Stick, Apple TV, Android TV, Roku, Xbox One, Google Chromecast, Oculus Go, and iOS and Android devices
- Sling TV local channels: NBC, Fox (check your local availability here)
Both Sling Blue ($25 per month) or Sling Orange + Blue ($40 per month) include NFL Network and a number of sports channels—like three ESPN channels, NBCSN, and FS1—and it’s still a nice perk that Sling subscribers can order a la carte packages. Sling TV also offers a special Latino package for bilingual viewers. Sling TV is currently offering a deal where you can subscribe for 40% off the regular price for the first month of your subscription. That means Sling Blue would cost $15, and Sling Orange + Blue would cost $25. (Here’s a complete guide to Sling TV channels and our Sling TV review.)
For $10 extra per month, you can get NFL RedZone via the Sling Blue Sports Extra package.
How to use AirTV with Sling
AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “it’s practically magic.”
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels.
- Cost: $54.99 per month
- FuboTV devices: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV, iOS and Android devices
- FuboTV local channels: Fox, NBC, CBS (check local availability here)

The only notable omission for sports fans is ESPN. You can add Fubo’s Sports Plus package for an additional $8.99 per month, which allows you to stream NFL RedZone, (Here’s the complete FuboTV channels list.)

From there, you can also add NFL RedZone as part of the $10-per-month Sports Pack, which also unlocks ESPN Bases Loaded, ESPN Classic, Longhorn Network, Outside TV, and NBCUniversal regional sports networks. You can see the full list of PlayStation Vue channels here. Two other great perks: You can stream on up to five devices at once, and there’s also unlimited cloud DVR.

To start, first download the NFL Sunday Ticket channel on Amazon Prime. It’s free. From there, you’ll just need to sign in with your subscription credentials.
College students can purchase NFL Sunday Ticket at a discounted price through NFLSundayTicket.TV U.
Cowboys vs. Redskins: Why it matters
For good teams, Week 2 often serves as a confirmation of what we saw the week before.
It’s hard to imagine the Redskins stopping what look to be at least a half-dozen dynamic offensive weapons. Even if Dak struggles a little bit to move the ball, it’s easy to imagine Demarcus Lawrence of Leighton Vander Esch having better luck getting to the quarterback than they did in Week 1.
The Redskins could also beat themselves. With few reliable offensive weapons, Case Keenum could have one of his streaky games. Though he threw no interceptions last week, he totaled 15 picks in 2018.
Good teams beat bad teams, and they beat them badly. This week matters in terms of measuring the Cowboys against future competition. Can they beat this Washington team handily and continue to build on their multi-facted offense?
If Washington keeps it close, then this Cowboys team may prove to be more mortal than they seemed last week. Dallas’ NFC rivals hope that’s exactly how things unfold.
We just wouldn’t bet on it.
