Dallas Cowboys: Amari Cooper vs Patrick Surtain II
Patrick Surtain II, a name most Cowboys fans are very familiar with, as he was one of the Cowboys’ top targets in this past NFL draft. The Broncos selected Surtain 9th overall and now he will face off with the Cowboys on Sunday.
This season Surtain has allowed 25 receptions on 46 targets while recording one interception. But, he has done a particularly good job of limiting yardage in coverage,
I am expecting Denver’s defensive game plan will be to stop the run, allowing one-on-one matchups on the outside with the Cowboys’ talented receivers. I am assuming Surtain will be on Amari Cooper to start the game and that is a matchup Dak Prescott should look to exploit.
Cooper is having another great season for the Cowboys, his route running has been surgical and he has 54 targets on the year with zero dropped passes. With wide receiver CeeDee Lamb questionable for the game due to an ankle injury, Amari may need to assume a bigger role than usual.
