Falcons vs Cowboys: 1. Tyler Biadasz vs Grady Jarrett

Cowboys center Tyler Biadasz has held up pretty well as of late, but facing defensive tackle Grady Jarrett will probably be his toughest test since week 3. Jarrett only has one sack on the year but he is still a force on the defensive front.

Jarrett has three QB hurries and nine pressures on the year. He also ranks 9th in pass-rush win rate for a defensive tackle at 14%. It will be vital that Biadasz can hold his own and keep Jarrett out of the Cowboys backfield. Also, expect the Cowboys to continue with their outside zone running game to stay away from Jarrett in the middle.

Hot. Falcons vs Cowboys odds and prediction for Week 10. light

Atlanta is allowing 123.1 rushing yards per game so they can be run on. Biadasz has performed well run-blocking with a win rate of 71% which ranks 7th amongst all centers in the league. Giving the running backs space to run and allowing them to take some pressure off of Dak Prescott will be one of the keys to success.
