Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys

Washington Redskins odds

Adrian Peterson wants a larger role in the Washington Redskins’ offense. Now, the Redskins might need it from him. Peterson was inactive for the season opener, but his role will expand for Sunday’s game against the visiting Dallas Cowboys. With running back Derrius Guice out with a knee injury for a few weeks, it’s Peterson’s turn to be back in the primary spot. “I know he’s not happy about (sitting out), but when his number is called, he’ll be ready to go. And his number will be called,” Washington coach Jay Gruden said. Peterson played in all 16 games last season for the Redskins, racking up 1,042 rushing yards for his best season since 2015 with the Minnesota Vikings. Gruden said will be important for the Redskins to establish a rushing attack that becomes a threat. To do so, it looks like Peterson will be called upon for some of the heavy lifting. ,

Dallas Cowboys odds

Maybe it was only one game, but the Dallas Cowboys appeared to be a finely tuned offense in Week 1, especially when you consider the context of their summer: No-show running back Ezekiel Elliott, top receiver Amari Cooper hobbled and out of practice and drama surrounding just how much quarterback Dak Prescott thinks he’s worth. The price went up against the Giants, with Prescott throwing four touchdowns and topping 400 yards as the Cowboys chewed up New York in every way imaginable. Behind a dominant offensive line, this week could be a return to the Elliott Show, but first-year offensive coordinator Kellen Moore crafted an aggressive game plan that brought balance and could keep it coming. ,
