How to Watch, Bet, Live Stream, Listen to the Cowboys-Patriots in Week 6
The Dallas Cowboys offense was just too big for the New York Giants in Week 5. The Giants’ top seven didn’t have the speed or athleticism to follow Dallas in the running game horizontally and Cowboys were too big and strong for them at the second level. When New York decided to bring an additional defender into the box, Dak Prescott and his passing game easily beat them over.
For the first time since 1983, when Danny White, Drew Pearson and Tony Dorsett accomplished it, the Cowboys offense racked up 200 rushing yards and 300 passing yards in one game. Too much for the Giants on defense, and too many injuries on offense, they were outclassed in this game. The New England Patriots are a real litmus test for Dallas.
The greatest coach in NFL history, Bill Belichick, will find a new way to test this elite Cowboys offense and it will be up to offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and Dak Prescott to counter his strategy. New England are great at stopping third-down and red zone conversions, but they haven’t been the elite against the race this season.
Belichick has played a lot of men’s cover with deep security this year. If the Cowboys can handle the ball well and force the Patriots to stay in this defense, instead of changing it like they probably would like to against this passing attack, then Dallas should be able to hit big plays with Amari Cooper. and CeeDee Lamb on top.
The Dallas defense has its own issues.
They were excellent against the two best receivers of the opposing attack, but were well attacked by the tight ends and the running backs. New England don’t have top receivers, but they have two great tight ends and two problematic running backs. Add in a young quarterback who completes seventy percent of his passes and the Cowboys must see this team as the serious threat they can be.
