Washington Commanders VS Dallas Cowboys Week 18 Preview
The Commanders will take on the Cowboys Today at FedexField at 4:25 P.M. on Fox to finish the regular season. I expect to see a lot of young player to play for the Commanders on Sunday. The starters will probably play the first half on both offense and defense for the Commanders. For the Cowboys they will be paying attention to the scoreboard to see how the Eagles are doing against the Giants. If the Eagles are in control expect the Cowboys to rest some starters after halftime as well. This will be good experience for Sam Howell to see how he does against a good Dallas defense for at least a half.
What I am looking for from the Commanders offense is how Sam Howell looks. It might look bad against a good cowboys defense, but I hope to see him make some tight window throws. I would also like to see him hook up with McLaurin a few times in the first half. If Howell does play well he might be the future QB for the Commanders. I expect the Commanders starters to play the first half of the game and then come out. So we will get to see the backups at receiver and tight end. For the o-line they will be without RT Cornelius Lucas and Sam Cosmi will start at RT.
Staring at running back for the Commanders will be Jonathan Williams. Brian Robinson has been banged up the last couple of week and it makes no sense to play him in this game. Also expect Jaret Patterson in the backfield a good amount Sunday as well.
The defense will look terrible tomorrow. They will be without a bunch of key players at important positions. Expect Dallas to put up points every time the starting offense is on the field. The only thing to watch on the defensive side of the ball will be the young players. Rookies like Percy Butler and Christian Holmes should get a lot of playing time.

The Cowboys offense will be able to do whatever it wants do against the Commanders. With all of the injuries the Commanders have I do not expect this game to be close. I will mainly just watch when Sam Howell is on the field and see how he does. I expect him to have an up and down day and hopefully he throws a couple of touchdowns. The Cowboys win 31-14 and the Commanders start the look for a new QB.
