NFC East Roundup: Week 2 in the books

Here's a look at the Eagles, Cowboys and Redskins following their Week 2 games:

Philadelphia Eagles (1-1)

- It was announced that quarterback Carson Wentz will make his return this week against the Colts. This will be the first time in nine months that Wentz will start and play since tearing his ACL and UCL in Week 14 against the Rams.

- The Eagles fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 27-20. Trailing 20-7 at halftime, the comeback wasn't enough as the Super Bowl LII champions lost for the first time since last December.

- After exiting the game in the first quarter with a quad injury, left tackle Jason Peters believes he'll be back next week against the Colts. "It's frustrating, man. But I know it's nothing long term. I'll be back out there next week," Peters said.

- Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was inactive for the game, along with running back Darren Sproles, defensive end Josh Sweat, and offensive linemen Jordan Mailata, Matt Pryor and Chance Warmack.

- Philadelphia takes on Indianapolis this Sunday at home with kickoff at 1 p.m.

Dallas Cowboys (1-1)

- The Cowboys defeated the New York Giants in Dallas, 20-13.

- Dallas had six sacks against the Giants en route to being the only team in the NFC East to record a win this week.

- Defensive end Randy Gregory was ruled inactive for the game, as he suffered a concussion and injured his knee in Week 1. Other inactives were tight end Dalton Schultz, quarterback Mike White, safety Xavier Woods, defensive tackle Datone Jones, and offensive linemen Travis Frederick and Xavier Su'a-Filo.

- The Cowboys head to Seattle as they take on the Seahawks this Sunday at 4:25 p.m.

Washington Redskins (1-1)

- Following a big Week 1 win, the Redskins fell to the Colts, 21-9.

- Even though the Redskins gained 334 total yards on offense, they were only able to put up field goals as kicker Dustin Hopkins connected on three of four kicks.

- After putting up over 100 total yards of offense last week, running back Adrian Peterson gained only 50 total yards on 14 touches.

- Inactives for the game were wide receiver Maurice Harris, safety Troy Apke, running back Samaje Perine, cornerback Adonis Alexander, defensive lineman Caleb Brantley, and offensive linemen Casey Dunn and Geron Christian Sr.
