What to make of the Cowboys?


So Dallas comes to town this weekend riding a three game win streak against the likes of K.C.( in overtime), Atlanta, and Seattle.  I know that wins are still wins, but that doesn't really impress me.  Even though Atlanta isn't awful, they have the 29th ranked defense in the league, so it was kind of expected that the Cowboys offense would be able to inflate their stats against them.  So at this point, I'm not sure what to make of the Cowboys. 

Tony Romo has played well, Miles Austin is playing bigger than himself, Witten is still Witten, and Roy Williams is an unhappy camper who is currently the league's highest paid for decoy (in draft picks and in salary).  The Cowboys are good on offense, but not unstoppable.  Samuel and Mikell are having Pro Bowl type seasons in the Eagles secondary, so I'm expecting them to help keep Dallas under control.  Once again, Patterson, Bunkley, and Cole are playing well and should be able to contain the running game.

The Cowboys currently have the 22nd ranked defense in the league but have played better as of late.  So how will they fare against our Eagles?  The Cowboys are yet to play a receiving corps as explosive as the Eagles, and there is not a defender in the league right now that can neutralize DJack by himself.  He is the game's most explosive player, and he has company with Celek and Maclin.  Across the board, these receivers are a touchdown waiting to happen.  Then you add Westbrook, Weaver, and McCoy, and the Cowboys defense has its hands full.

This should be a fun matchup.  I'm not expecting another 44-6 blowup, but I think the Eagles explosive offense will make the big plays that will propel us to sole possession of 1st in the NFC East. 

Eagles 31, Cowboys 17
