Five Cowboy Players to Watch during the Dallas vs. Philadelphia Game

Tony Romo: Will Romo continue his MVP season against the Eagles? I say yes and he needs to if the Cowboys are going to stay in the playoff hunt. It is all but do or die time for the Cowboys, and Romo is going to play a huge role for the Cowboys. In the past few weeks Romo has looked unstoppable and had it not been for poor defense the Cowboys would already have clinched a playoff spot. Romo has to have a nearly flawless game against the Eagles and get all recovers involved. I see Romo going off for 330 yards and 4 touchdown passes.

Felix Jones: Can he continue to prove me wrong? I will admit I have never been on the Felix Jones train but last week he proved that he can be a good solid starting back. Maybe it was getting healthy; maybe it was not having Murray there to threaten his job. Whatever it was Jones looked well and that is good news coming into the Eagles game. The Cowboys are going to need another good effort to take some pressure off of the pass game. I see Jones going for 85 yards but most importantly opens up the passing game for the Cowboys.

Miles Austin: Can Austin have as big a day as I am predicting him to have? I see Austin just havinga monster day on Saturday. Why? Because with Bryant being covered by the number 1 corner, I see the field being wide open for Austin to go off. Austin has looked really good since returning to the lineup and has really made what had been a great passing attack even better. Robinson, Bryant and Austin have given the Boys a very strong passing game and it will need to be on in full force on Saturday. I see Austin having 2 touchdowns and 150 yards receiving.

Martellus Bennett: Can he have a big game like he did last week and open up passing game even more? The more the merrier for Tony Romo when it comes to whom to throw the ball to these days. Bennett is coming off what some would say (including myself) one of his best games he has played as a Cowboy. He looked comfortable and was catching the ball really well. I really hope this continues because in years past Bennett has been known more for what he was doing off the field instead of on it. Bennett doesn’t need to have a big game but needs to come up big in the short yardage situations. I see Bennett having 40 yards receiving and making a big third down grab in the 4th quarter.


Rob Ryan: What defense will we get this week? We have seen the good, the bad and the ugly this season from the Boys defense, and we have heard Rob Ryan call the Eagles out. That didn’t work out very well the last time we played the Eagles, so Ryan needs to make a statement this time. We need that smash mouth, quarterback pressure defense that we saw against the Patriots earlier this season. We need a good run defensive effort because McCoy is one of the best backs in the NFL. Ryan needs to walk the walk and have his defense better prepared than the last meeting between these two teams.

Who do you predict will win this Saturday?
