Cowboys vs Ravens: Game Plan for Dallas

At NBC, I posted a mini-game plan for the Cowboys in Week 6. Here’s a preview. . .

DON’T run the ball inside.

Outside of the fact that all three Cowboys interior linemen have had trouble opening holes for running back DeMarco Murray, the Ravens’ top defender—Haloti Ngata—also lurks inside. Ngata plays all along the defensive front, and he’s the biggest threat to the Cowboys’ offense on Sunday.

One way to potentially negate Ngata in the running game is to call counters away from him. Over the past three seasons, Dallas has averaged 7.2 YPC on over 100 counters. That’s an insane number, so naturally Jason Garrett has dialed up just one counter all season.

Read the entire game plan.
