4 bold predictions for the Cowboys vs. Bears Week 8 NFC battle
1. Dak and Gallup Bounce Back
It wasn’t the best of showings from quarterback Dak Prescott and his receiver Michael Gallup against the Detroit Lions last week, but that’s the great thing about football — you get to do it all over again next week.
That’s exactly what I see happening with these two against the Bears. Prescott will be more accurate in the passing game and Gallup is actually going to catch the football and make some plays to help this team win. They will have to do it against one of the better defenses in the NFL but we’ve seen the connection these two have, and when they are on it, just seems to open up the offense.
The Bears are going to be focused on stopping the run just the like Cowboys, but with Prescott under center, the Cowboys have the advantage in the passing game and this Bears’ defense has been exposed at times through the air by teams this season. If offensive coordinator Kellen Moore can come up with a game plan using motion and misdirection to keep this Bears defense off-balanced, then Prescott and Gallup (along with the rest of the Cowboys receivers) should have a very good game.
We know how hot and cold Moore’s playcalling can be but I believe he will rise to the occasion this week.
