2019 NFL Draft Hats from New Era

After the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Philadelphia Eagles on the road last weekend, Dallas still had a chance to clinch the NFC East Title with a win and a Philadelphia loss on the road against the New York Giants.

The Cowboys took care of business at home in a 47-16 win over the Redskins. However, the Eagles (9-7) took down New York (4-12) on the road by a score of 34-17 and Dallas will be out of the playoffs for the sixth time in nine years in the Jason Garrett Era.

With that in mind, the future is uncertain for Garrett. If Jason Garrett is retained as head coach and not let go, it is obvious that Owner Jerry Jones cares more about business than winning.

With the Dallas Cowboys leading 6-3 in the second-quarter, Dak Prescott threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Ezekiel Elliott. Prescott completed 23-of-33 passes for 303 yards and four touchdowns. He also rushed for 35 yards on three carries in this game.

Elliott also rushed for 122 yards yards on 18 carries and a score. He also caught three passes for two yards receiving and a touchdown.

Ezekiel Elliott scored on a 33-yard touchdown run later in the second-quarter for Dallas.

Washington scored on a 6-yard touchdown pass by Case Keenum to Steven Sims. Keenum started this game in place of Dwayne Haskins Jr. due to an ankle injury he suffered in a 41-35 loss at home in overtime last week against the New York Giants.

Keenum completed 18-of-37 passes for 206 yards one touchdown and one interception.

Sims caught five passes for 81 yards receiving and a touchdown. He also rushed for -6 yards on one carry.

Adrian Peterson was the leading rusher in this game for the Washington Redskins with 78 yards rushing on 13 carries. He also caught one pass for zero yards receiving.

Hale Hentges caught four passes for 62 yards receiving.

Kelvin Harmon caught three passes for 33 yards receiving.

Jeremy Sprinkle caught three passes for 18 yards receiving for Washington.

Chris Thompson rushed for 11 yards on three carries. He also caught one pass for zero yards receiving.

With the Cowboys leading 13-10 in the third-quarter, Dak Prescott threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Michael Gallup. He caught five passes for 98 yards receiving and three touchdowns.

With a 30-16 lead in the third-quarter, Prescott threw a 32-yard touchdown pass to Gallup.

After the Redskins turned the ball over on downs on their ensuing drive, Dallas scored on a 45-yard touchdown reception by Michael Gallup from Dak Prescott.

Amari Cooper caught four passes for 92 yards receiving.

Randall Cobb caught five passes for 81 yards receiving.

Jason Witten caught four passes for 24 yards receiving for the Dallas Cowboys.

Tony Pollard rushed for 60 yards on 14 carries. He also caught one pass for five yards receiving.'

The field goal kickers were also busy in this game.

Kai Forbath made field goals from 28, 47, and 40 yards out for Dallas.

Dustin Hopkins made field goals from 31, 42, and 28 yards out for Washington.

The Washington Redskins will most likely let go of Bruce Allen as the President of Football Operations and Bill Callahan will most likely not be back as the permanent head coach.

He replaced Jay Gruden as the interim head coach after Gruden was fired in Week 5 against the New England Patriots.

Washington will be interviewing former Carolina Panthers Head Coach Ron Rivera on Monday for the head coaching vacancy. It would be an excellent hire if they were able to get him.

It will be interesting to see who they would hire as the next President of Football Operations however.

The Redskins (3-13) will have the second pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and their season concludes.

The Cowboys (8-8) season concludes and their high expectations this season ended in utter disappointment.
