It's game day again! After the two week wait of the bye week, the Dallas Cowboys travel to M & T Bank Stadium to play the Baltimore Ravens.
It looks like some football weather as well. The temperature is predicted to be in the upper forties to low fifties, under partly sunny skies.
While you are getting into your game day rituals, here is a quick tour of what the media is saying about the game.
A pretty pessimistic view - only sees an advantage for the Cowboys when the Ravens are passing.
Execution will be key for the Cowboys.
Nick Eatman: We know this will be a tough five-game stretch but there might not be a tougher game on the overall schedule than this one in Baltimore.
A look at what the Ravens need to do to move the ball against Rob Ryan's defense from our sister SBN site.
And a companion look at the Dallas pass defense from one of the commercial outlets in the area.
Sensing a theme here.
Yep. Definite theme. Does anybody care about the Dallas offense?
Well, not who I expected . . .
Rob Ryan has seen struggling offenses, and this Cowboys offense, sir, is not struggling.
Although I don't know if I completely agree there.
Looks like he is going to be able to go.
Asks the question we all want to know the answer to:
So which Cowboys team will show up when they travel to M&T Bank on Sunday to take on the Ravens?
Control the ball, win turnover battle . . . Good, common sense,
This is one to keep an eye on, for sure.
Big. I hope.
Number one: The huge home field advantage the Ravens have at M & T Bank Stadium. (Note to Jerry: Will all these clunky corporate names around the league, Cowboys Stadium just has a nice ring to it. How about keeping it? You are making money like you own the printing presses anyway.)
Got another one of them themes going.
I think we get the idea.
See three previous articles. They are going to need to be.
They were taken in the same draft. Felix went first. He kinda sucks. Rice kinda doesn't.
Well, who cares? Oh, those who like controversial headlines and slamming Romo. I forgot.
Great. Another derisive nickname.
I just want to make the observation that we really don't know what would have happened. Garrett might have won a couple of rings if he had gotten the job then, for all we know. But, yeah, Harbaugh is doing pretty well.
A look at the game from the best "real" media coverage of the Cowboys you'll find outside of the Metroplex.
A look at the game from the other side.
Funny. I think someone around here made a similar point in an article he wrote almost two weeks ago.
Warning: Contains reference to a Cowboys offensive lineman. Recommended for mature and experienced fans only.
And a couple of things from a broader perspective than just the game:
Don't let the Times link fool you - it is actually from Texas Monthly.
He believes the fans at Cowboys Stadium aren't much help for the team. We feel you, Troy.
