Cowboys vs. Redskins: Previewing the Redskins offense

Cowboys vs. Redskins: Previewing the Redskins offense

An offense that has been ravaged by injuries will go up against the strong Dallas D. A lot has changed since the Cowboys and Redskins last met a month ago. Washington’s grip on first place in the NFC East has loosened, as they’ve lost two of their last three and now Alex Smith is out for the year with a broken tibia and fibula. Meanwhile, Dallas has won two straight games on the road against two very talented teams. When the Thanksgiving Classic begins on Thursday, the winner of this game will take control of the division. Last time, Dallas’ defense did a good job of stopping the...

Five plays that shaped the Cowboys game against the Atlanta Falcons

Dallas got another win that they absolutely needed. How did it happen? For the second straight week, the Cowboys went on the road and got a win over a bird-themed team to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Cowboys vs. Falcons: Previewing the Atlanta defense

Cowboys vs. Falcons: Previewing the Atlanta defense

A defense that’s been hurt a lot this year poses a favorable matchup for Dallas. The Atlanta Falcons are run by head coach Dan Quinn, who was one of the influential people in crafting the Seahawks’ dominant Legion of Boom defense. So when he took over the Falcons, it was expected that the team would develop a strong defensive identity. After being inconsistent on that side of the ball in his first two years, Quinn hired a new defensive coordinator and reportedly became more involved in managing the defense in-game, and the Falcons jumped up to the ninth best unit last year....

Cowboys vs. Falcons: Previewing the Atlanta offense

Cowboys vs. Falcons: Previewing the Atlanta offense

With so many playmakers, you’d expect the Atlanta offense to put up better numbers. When the Atlanta Falcons went to the Super Bowl and almost won, it was on the strength of their potent and dynamic offense led by Kyle Shanahan. Since Shanahan left, though, new offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian has had a shaky go of things thus far. He has this offense performing better than last season, but there are still stretches where they seem to go cold. On paper, it looks as if the offense is doing great. They’re averaging 27 points per game, Matt Ryan has just over 3,000 yards through...

The Cowboys find themselves in the same situation as last year’s Bears

The Cowboys find themselves in the same situation as last year’s Bears

But how do the Cowboys make sure their 2019 is like the Bears’ 2018? Last year, the Los Angeles Rams took the NFL by storm with first-time head coach and offensive play-caller Sean McVay turning Jared Goff and Todd Gurley into superstars. Suddenly, every down-on-their-luck team wanted the next McVay. So far this season, it seems that the Chicago Bears found theirs in Matt Nagy, who has taken last year’s 5-11 Bears team to an impressive 6-3 start. While the win over the Eagles may have put a temporary hold on the calls for an overhaul in Dallas, the Cowboys still sit at 4-5 and face an...

It was a much needed win against a bitter rival. How did it happen? The Cowboys were already going to be hard-pressed to make the playoffs after falling to 3-5 last week, but losing against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night would have effectively slammed the door shut on any hopes of saving the season.

Cowboys vs. Titans: Previewing the Tennessee defense

Cowboys vs. Titans: Previewing the Tennessee defense

The Titans defense is something to be concerned with. The Titans are similar to the Cowboys in a lot of ways. Both have severely under-performing offenses and stout defenses, and both are 3-4 entering Monday night’s matchup. The Titans have had to rely on their defense to win those three games this year, and they rank 11th in the league in overall defense while boasting the ninth best pass defense. And the Titans have been so good in pass defense due in large part to a talented secondary. Two former Patriots man the cornerback spots in Malcolm Butler and Logan Ryan, with Adoree Jackson...

Cowboys vs. Titans: Previewing the Tennessee offense

What does Marcus Mariota and company bring to the table? On Monday night, the Dallas Cowboys will welcome the Tennessee Titans into AT&T Stadium. Both teams are sitting at 3-4 in divisions that are still up for grabs, and both teams need to win Monday to keep any playoff hopes alive. On offense, the Titans have several players who could make for a potent attack. Marcus Mariota is a dual-threat quarterback, and the rushing duo of Derrick Henry and Dion Lewis can be a thunder and lightning tandem that’s hard to deal with. Additionally, the offensive line is solid, equipped with two...

Five changes the Cowboys need to make in the bye week

Five changes the Cowboys need to make in the bye week

What can Dallas do to get back on track? Trade for Amari Cooper Integrate Amari Cooper Giving up a first-round pick is always a steep price to pay, but Amari Cooper is the kind of player who can justify it. There’s plenty of reason to have confidence in Cooper’s ability to get open and Dak Prescott’s ability to hit him consistently. The worry is how the coaches will integrate Cooper into their scheme. In Oakland, Cooper’s best years were when he had 130+ targets and was very much part of the passing game. Last year, when his numbers dropped, his number of targets dropped to 96...

Breaking down Amari Cooper’s recent struggles in Oakland

Breaking down Amari Cooper’s recent struggles in Oakland

Is the new Cowboys receiver’s struggles on him? Or is it something else? In case you missed it, Amari Cooper is a Dallas Cowboy now. The former standout wide receiver from Alabama was taken fourth overall in the 2015 NFL draft by the Oakland Raiders. He quickly became their best receiver, topping 1,000 yards receiving in his first two years. However, Cooper’s production has fallen off in the last two seasons, leading some to make assumptions that he’s not a good receiver anymore. Let’s take a look at what exactly happened in order to try and determine if Cooper can be successful...
