After three games at home, the Dallas Cowboys hit the road and traveled to Foxborough, MA for a battle with the New England Patriots. In the past, the Cowboys have not performed well against the Patriots, having not won against them since 1996. This even predates the Bill Belichick / Tom Brady era. Bill Belichick is still there, but Brady has moved on and the Patriots are much less formidable without him.

The Cowboys come out strong on a four-game winning streak and are the favorites of the game. Led by Dak Prescott, the Cowboys offense is a juggernaut, ranking second in the league in points scored and sporting a choice dilemma for defense. Dallas can run the ball or pass it with equal success. Defenses should focus on stopping one and hoping for the best with the other.

In defense, it’s all about turnover for the Cowboys. They’re second in that department in the NFL and will look to play more against rookie quarterback Mac Jones. The Patriots are also suffering along the offensive line, providing more opportunities for the Cowboys defense to add to their turnover.
