Dallas Cowboys 2013 Schedule Analysis and Predictions
I’m going to be working for Bleacher Report again this year, and my first article went up today. I posted a game-by-game breakdown of the Cowboys’ 2013 schedule. Here’s Week 1:
Jason Garrett was praised for “maintaining balance” in the Cowboys’ Week 1 win over the Giants in 2012, but the truth is, the offense gained a lead by passing the football often. They ran the ball well late, racking up yards to create the illusion of offensive balance.
In 2013, the Cowboys are going to beat the Giants by continuing to do what they do best: throwing the football. Dallas has massive advantages at the skill positions, particularly when Dez Bryant is covered by Corey Webster. The most overrated cornerback in the NFL allowed eight touchdowns and over 10 yards per attempt last year! If Webster is ever on an island against Bryant, he’s going to lose, and in a bad way.
PREDICTION: Cowboys 28, Giants 24 (1-0)
This is actually the first time I’m revealing my projected record for the Cowboys, so check it out at BR.
