4 Offensive Players to Watch vs Raiders
At NBC, I broke down four players to watch for the Cowboys on Friday night:
Leary played 62 snaps against the Dolphins, so the coaches obviously want to see if he can handle playing inside. With the addition of veteran free agent guard Brandon Moore, it’s looking like Leary will play left guard. If he continues to generate a push like he did on Sunday night, he’s going to start over Nate Livings. Keep an eye on both Leary and center Travis Frederick early in the game.
The Cowboys leaned heavily on Dunbar on their first drive before pulling him in favor of Phillip Tanner. That’s probably a sign that the coaches are comfortable with Dunbar as DeMarco Murray’s primary backup, but Tanner really played well against Miami. Dunbar is the fastest of the primary trio playing behind Murray, and he’s my choice to win the job. Still, he needs to maintain a high level of play with Tanner right behind him.
