3 Things to Watch for Cowboys vs Falcons
At NBC, I posted three questions for Dallas heading into their Week 9 matchup with the Falcons.
Will Jason Garrett attack Atlanta’s defensive weakness?
Only one team in the NFL has allowed greater rushing efficiency than the Falcons. They’ve yielded 5.1 YPC, primarily because they sit in zone coverage and let offenses run the ball. The strength of the Cowboys certainly isn’t their rushing attack, so it will be interesting to see whether or not Garrett tries to get something going on the ground. Make no mistake about it—the Cowboys won’t win this game without effective passing—but this is one of those contests in which early rushing efficiency could pay off later in the game.
