The Dallas Cowboys are desperate for a win and with two tough games against the Packers and Giants ahead, Dallas needs to get the W today against Jacksonville. It would only be the team’s second win of the year, but even worse . . . it would be their first home win of the season.
Dallas should look to get their running game on track against Jacksonville’s 25th ranked rush defense. Jon Kitna will be making the start in place of the injured Tony Romo, and he will need all the help he can get.
If the running game gets rolling, passing lanes will really open up for Kitna, who steps in to the fourth-ranked passing offense. To make things better for Kitna, Jacksonville also allows 253-yards-per-game through the air.
Everything is in Dallas’ favor in this game, so they have to capitalize.
One could argue that the Jaguars are the easiest team the Cowboys have faced this far in 2010 and they need the win for any hope of turning around the season.
