For the first two weeks of the season, the Dallas Cowboys were one of the best teams in the NFL. They were outscoring opponents with ease as they had 70 points in two games while giving up just 10.

That all fell apart in Week 3 when they headed to Glendale to take on the Arizona Cardinals. In that one, the Cards punched them in the mouth early and never let up. Dallas lost 28-16 but it felt even worse than this.

Now in Week 4, they look to bounce back but have a tough task ahead of them with the New England Patriots coming to town. This is a game they'll be favored in but they cannot take a team coached by Bill Belichick lightly, and thanks to the beatdown they just had in Week 3, they surely won't be taking anyone lightly right now.

With all that being said, let's look ahead to this one with five bold predictions as the Cowboys host New England in Week 4.

5. Stephon Gilmore scores a pick-six on his old team

A star from South Carolina, Stephon Gilmore was the 10th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Buffalo Bills. He spent five seasons there before signing a massive contract with New England in 2017.

He then spent four years with the Pats and won a Super Bowl following the 2019 season. He was also the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2019 when he led the league in pass breakups with 20 as well as interceptions with six. To top it all off, he returned two of those for touchdowns.

Gilmore hasn't had a pick-six since that season which makes this a bold prediction as he records his first since 2019 against his old team. The Cowboys defense was embarrassed in Week 3 and Gilmore is one of the veterans who will help them get back on track with a huge play.
