This week the 2-2 Dallas Cowboys visit the 4-1 New England Patriots (2-0 at home). The bye week could not of come at a better time for the Cowboys with the hopes of healing some of the wounded in the Cowboy camp.
The bye week did exactly that by helping the wounded as Dallas looks to have most of their starting line-up back in sync and a full arsenal in the secondary which is perfect timing against Tom Brady and the Patriot offense.
From a blogger / fan perspective this game is going to take an all-out effort by the Cowboys to stay step by step with the offense of the Tom Brady led New England powerful offense if the Cowboys want to come out victorious.
We’ll New England has so much power on offense it could be the team that has the ball last that wins this football game. Dallas will have to use all of its weapons on both offense and defense to exploit New England. Dallas can go toe-to-toe with New England in almost all categories and will have to be running on all cylinders to prove they can win this game. Every player on the Dallas ‘D’ will be tested by Tom Brady and company.
Dallas has to have better clock management and hopefully this is something that showed on game tapes from the Lions game and in the event the Cowboys can get a lead on the Pats, definitely look for the Cowboys to better manage the clock to keep Brady off the field and with that being said, lets hope Tony Romo on offense does not give up any points (insert pick-6 here). bad throws – turnovers -straight up, they cannot happen or Brady will take full advantage of any hand-outs given to him.
Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan should know a little about Pats Coach Bill Belichick’s game plan as Ryan was the Pats linebacker Coach from 2000-2003 and won two Super-Bowls with the Pats during his tenure with the Pats so hoping Ryan can rally his defense and bring a strong defensive game plan Sunday and maybe even a Cowboy victory.
The game should be on prime-time (16:15), the game should also bring a huge element of excitement to anyone watching this tilt.
Sunday’s game will mark the 11th time these two teams have met. Dallas holds a 7-3 mark which really does not indicate anything as a lot of those games were played prior to the Pats being what some call ‘the new America’s team’ which we can all debate.
as always comments, questions, concerns, see ya’all Sunday/Monday
