The Dallas Cowboys shot to first in the NFC East with an impressive win over the Giants, capped by Brandon Carr’s 49-yard interception return for the sixth turnover of the game. With the scoring-happy NFL, turnovers become even more important as the only way to stop the opponent. The Monday night game will answer a lot of questions regarding if Michael Vick can prosper again in the fast-paced Oregon Ducks offense, and if RG3 looks like he is all the way back. The Week 1 Ratings, without the benefit of the Eagles at Redskins game Monday, are below:
|NFC EAST||Massey||Better/Worse||1-day rank||Result|
|Dallas||0.3||8||4.3||vs. NY Giants|
|Washington||2.1||2.1||MON vs. Phil|
|NY Giants||4.9||-8||0.9||at Dallas|
|Philadelphia||-5.9||-5.9||MON at Wash|
The 1-day rank is the average between how many points better or worse than average each team is on www.masseyratings.com and how many points better or worse the team did in that game than the expected point spread on www.masseyratings.com. A “+5.0” means the team was considered 5 points better than the average team in the league that day.
