3 Key Matchups for Cowboys vs Falcons
At NBC, I broke down my three biggest matchups in the Cowboys’ Week 9 tilt with the Falcons.
DC Rob Ryan versus OC Dirk Koetter
As I mentioned in my What to Watcharticle, the Falcons—equipped with two elite receivers and a star quarterback—are much like the Giants on offense. I expect Rob Ryan to use a game plan to similar to the excessive Cover 2 looks that stopped the Giants. The Cowboys played some form of Cover 2 on 75.2 percent of their defensive snaps against the Giants this year, holding Eli Manning to 6.43 YPA.
