The Dallas Cowboys are coming off an impressive win against one of the top offenses in the NFL, with the Dallas defense holding the Detroit Lions offense to just six points. The Cowboys also saw the return of quarterback Dak Prescott, who looked a bit rusty but seemed to start shaking it off as the game progressed.
This week the Cowboys will be hosting the Chicago Bears who are coming off an impressive win of their own, beating the New England Patriots on Monday night.
Led by quarterback Justin Fields and an aggressive defensive unit, the Bears are trying to fight their way back into the playoff conversation. Much like the Cowboys did with a young Prescott under center, the Bears are effectively utilizing the legs of Fields in order to build his confidence and open up the passing game at the same time. This makes him a tough quarterback to face for the Cowboys who’ve at times had problems with the more mobile quarterbacks in this league.
It remains to be seen how Dallas will approach defending this dynamic quarterback and beating this very good defensive unit. But we will try and figure it out in this weeks, “Know Thy Enemy”
