Cowboys at Patriots: What a win or a loss means this Sunday
The Dallas Cowboys are going into Foxborough to play the Patriots on Sunday. What would a win or loss against the Brady-Belichick duo mean for Dallas?
Anytime a team knows they are lining up against the New England Patriots, they know they must be perfect. This Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys will play against the best quarterback-coach duo in Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
This is the hardest matchup in Dallas’ schedule this season. What would a win or loss against the Patriots dynasty team mean for the Cowboys?
Dallas Cowboys win
If the Dallas Cowboys can pull everything together and play good enough to win, then this game will catch the eyes of those around the league. New England is not undefeated anymore, after losing to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 9.
That shows that Belichick can be beaten, but it will be a tough task. Once Baltimore beat the Patriots, everyone immediately pointed to them as the top team in the league. Stellar play from quarterback Lamar Jackson and a stud defense kept them in the question, but this win topped it off.
Now, the Cowboys do have the roster to beat the Patriots as long as they don’t turn the ball over. I have faith in the offense, even against the Patriots to be able to put up more points than Brady can. Although the Pats are third in points scored per game, they are 16th in total yards per game.
Their offense gets a lot of help from their top defense and by leading the league in interceptions. The field position the defense gives their offense is their key to success.
The Cowboys will be without linebacker Leighton Vander Esch, but Sean Lee should fill in with success. This will make the Cowboys look even better being without LVE. Quarterback Dak Prescott would and should get a lot of credit for a win this Sunday.
One more win means staying atop of the NFC East with a calming schedule ahead. Dallas would yet again be in the talks of being a top team in the NFL, and Dak would finally insert himself into the conversation of being an MVP candidate.
A win would also bring the Super Bowl contender conversation into fruition again. Beating the best quarterback-coach duo in the league for the past two decades is not an easy thing to do. Doing so will only have good things come to you.
