The Cowboys are kind of overrated (yeah, big news there) and the Redskins shouldn't be a problem, but playing against the Giants close to the end of the regular season, which is usually the time, when they get hot? I think the Giants might be our toughest match up on the schedule.
It really depends on the offense. I do think there are plenty of games, that are much easier than playing against the Eagles in Philly, which we could've won (or probably should've).
It ultimately comes down to how fast this new offensive look starts clicking. I thought we were there already in week 1, but clearly we're not yet. I think we still have trouble using it on the road due to noise, I still think Joe doesn't audible enough out of Cams plays, when Cam suddenly becomes unimaginative and stubborn (Joe did it against Cinci though, so that might be connected to the noise thing) and we still need to adjust faster to defensive looks (last season, we were running the ball even if it didn't work, now we do the opposite?).
I think the schedule will work in our favor. At home we will have a good shot at dealing with the Pats and the week after, we're heading to KC were we face an average Chiefs team with an excellent crowd (perfect test for no-huddle on the road). I have my fingers crossed we have worked out the kinks already by then.
