2. Cowboys getting healthy

Thankfully for the Cowboys’ wide receivers CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper will return this week. But, for the first time since Week 1 defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is expected to play. He will be a huge boost to the defensive side of the ball.

Those three players should make huge impacts on both sides of the ball for the Cowboys. Quarterback Dak Prescott will have his two best weapons back and the defense gets backs their best defensive end. Lawrence should immediately help out the run defense and provide another dominant pass-rusher opposite of Micah Parsons.

Also, with Terence Steele getting placed on the Covid-list, La’el Collins will retake his starting job at right tackle. Making this the first time since Week 1 that the Cowboys will have their best offensive tackles starting a game together. Ultimately, the return of Lamb, Cooper, and Lawrence, should be enough to help vault the Cowboys into the win column.
