Dallas Cowboys vs Tennessee Titans: Know Thy Enemy
The Dallas Cowboys will be facing off against another physical team in the Tennessee Titans this Thursday after a hard-fought win against the division-leading Philadelphia Eagles on Saturday.
Luckily for the Cowboys, they didn’t have any major injuries in their game against the Eagles, who can’t say the same, losing a starting right tackle and cornerback in that game. While the win does leave the door open for the Cowboys to come back and win the division, the Eagles only need one win to lock up the No. 1 seed.
To do that, though, the Cowboys will need to beat a Titans team that’s fighting for their own division against the Jaguars. You can expect the Titans to come out and do everything they can to win this game, which means a heavy dose of pro-bowl running back Derrick Henry for the Cowboys this week.
If they want to win in the playoffs this season, Dallas will need to show that they can stop the run and a good way to do so will be by corralling the toughest running back in the league to bring down. So let’s take a look at what the Titans will bring and how the Cowboys can get a win in this week’s “Know Thy Enemy”.
