At NBC, I posted four matchups to watch in the Cowboys’ Week 7 tilt with the Panthers:

WR Miles Austin vs CB Josh Norman

Panthers cornerback Chris Gamble has been targeted at a rate lower than every cornerback in the NFL—once every 12.6 coverage snaps. That’s particular amazing because Gamble has shadowed No. 1 wide receivers. My hunch is that he’ll play primarily on Dez Bryant this Sunday.

That leaves Norman to cover Miles Austin. Norman hasn’t been poor in 2012 by any means, allowing 8.23 YPA on 31 targets. Still, he’s not playing at the level of Gamble, and I think the ‘Boys will be able to get some things going through the air this week. Look for Austin to utilize his quickness to beat Norman fairly regularly.

Check out the other three matchups at NBC.
