Five bold predictions for when the Cowboys visit the Falcons

New, comments

Let’s have some fun today.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Dallas Cowboys Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys are looking for their fourth win in a row when they visit the Atlanta Falcons on this glorious Sunday. Will they get it? If you ask the confines of BTB, the answer is duh.

How will they get it, though? What moments will transpire in the process? We’re glad you asked here at BTB, and it’s time to answer as we always do... boldly. Here are this week’s bold predictions.

Brice Butler will take a play at least 90 yards

DJ Duffle, as Brice Butler is often known, was born in 1990 near Atlanta, GA. Of course, it’s well-known that Brice’s father played for the Falcons, so this is a bit of a homecoming for him.

Brice is a phenomenal athlete who is more than capable of hitting a home run. Do it at home, Brice. Go big.

Kavon Frazier will cause a fumble on special teams

The newest special teams ace in Dallas is quickly turning out to be second-year safety Kavon Frazier.

This is a role that is so critical to an NFL team. You need that guy who can change the game in one fell swoop on plays that some don’t deem as valuable, like those on special teams.

Kavon Frazier has been proving to be that guy so far this season, and today in Atlanta he’s going to do it to a large degree.

Dak Prescott will have over 50 yards rushing

It was against the Green Bay Packers earlier this season when Dak notched his season-high in terms or rush yards with 37. With no Ezekiel Elliott in the backfield, it stands to reason that number could climb.

We’ll see the Cowboys employ a platoon of running backs in Alfred Morris, Rod Smith, and Darren McFadden, but it could be Dak that benefits the most in terms of yards gained on the ground.

Mike Nugent won’t miss a field goal

We didn’t get to see Mike Nugent attempt a field goal against the Kansas City Chiefs because the Dallas Cowboys were too busy scoring touchdowns. Those jerks.

Nugent has been a nice point of stability in the kicking game during Dan Bailey’s absence. His lone demerit is the first field goal he attempted, in Washington with sloppy field conditions, and since then he’s been dy-no-mite.

This game is the second of five consecutive games indoors for the Cowboys. That’s a kicker’s best friend. Do your thing, Mike Nugent.

David Irving will put the exclamation point on the game

Amazingly, the Cowboys have a defensive line they can count on. These are wild times.

DeMarcus Lawrence has been wreaking all kinds of havoc, Tyrone Crawford is somewhat justifying who we thought he was, and David Irving has been on an absolute tear since he came back from suspension.

Matt Ryan just looks like the type of quarterback that will lose a game by having David Irving make a big play against him. I don’t make the rules, I just tell it like it is.
