Week Six: Dallas Cowboys at New England Patriots

The big question coming into this game will be who will be starting at quarterback for the Patriots. Will it be veteran Cam Newton or first-round pick Mac Jones.

Foxborough has always been a tough place to play and this game should be no different. Patriots coach Bill Belichick has a stout defense and the last time Dallas played in New England (2019) they only scored nine points.

Ultimately, the Cowboys defense will have their way with an unexplosive Patriots offense and secure a victory.

Cowboys 23- Patriots 19

Record: 5-1

(Week Seven: Bye Week)

Week Eight: Dallas Cowboys at Minnesota Vikings

It seems like the Cowboys and Vikings play in close games every time they meet. Over their last five meetings, the average winning margin has been 3.2 points.

Second-year wide receiver, CeeDee Lamb, returns to the stadium where he made this miraculous catch.

Lamb has another huge game on Sunday Night Football and the Cowboys rally late to get the victory. Giving them five straight wins.

Cowboys 27- Vikings 24

Record: 6-1

Week Nine: Denver Broncos at Dallas Cowboys

The last time Dallas played Denver they lost 42-17 in Mile High Stadium. Now the Cowboys have a chance at revenge in Texas.

For the time being it seems like either Drew Lock or Teddy Bridgewater will be the Broncos starting QB. So that gives Dallas an immediate advantage at the most important position.

Denver also selected Patrick Surtain II ninth overall, stealing him from the Cowboys. But he won’t make much of a difference in this game as the Cowboys roll to six straights Ws.

Cowboys 30- Broncos 17

Record: 7-1

Week Ten: Atlanta Falcons at Dallas Cowboys

Dan Quinn gets his first crack at the team that fired him last season. Also, a rematch of the infamous “watermelon-kick” game.

The Falcons used the fourth-overall pick to add tight end, Kyle Pitts, to their already loaded offense. Pitts along with Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley is a matchup nightmare for any defense.

Dallas’ defense struggles to stop Atlanta in this game and the Cowboys lose a shootout.

Falcons 32- Cowboys 28

Record: 7-2
