The 2-2 Dallas Cowboys will face the undefeated Denver Broncos at AT&T Stadium on Sunday. And a lot of the media coverage has been about how Dallas can stop veteran Denver quarterback and future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning. The Broncos come into Arlington opening as eight-point favorites against the inconsistent Cowboys. But here are five ways Dallas could beat Denver this weekend.
5. Odds are against the Denver Broncos going undefeated.
In the history of the NFL, there have only been four teams to ever go undefeated during the regular season: The 1934 & 1942 Chicago Bears, the 1972 Miami Dolphins and the 2007 New England Patriots. The Dolphins are the only team to ever have a perfect winning season through both the regular season and the playoffs. So odds are Denver will lose at some point this year. Why not away from home at AT&T Stadium, where the Cowboys are currently undefeated?
If Dallas is unable to pull out a win, the next best time for a Broncos upset might be at the hands of their undefeated divisional rivals, the Kansas City Chiefs. Head coach Andy Reid’s new team will face Denver twice within a three week period starting in mid-November.
