3 Offensive Players to Watch for Cowboys vs Cardinals
At NBC, I broke down three players to watch for Dallas on Saturday:
RT Doug Free
Free was unimaginably bad in 2012. He allowed pressure on 6.2 percent of his snaps in pass protection, committed 13 penalties, and Cowboys running backs averaged only 2.58 YPC with him at the point-of-attack. If you remove DeMarco Murray’s 48-yard run in Week 1 on which Free didn’t do much of anything, the average drops to 1.99 YPC.
However, reports indicate that Free is playing really well in camp. He looked fine last week against the Raiders, and due to a lack of competition, he appears poised to hang onto the starting job. Let’s see if Free can maintain any sort of consistency against the Cardinals on Saturday.
