The Dallas Cowboys are playing their first road game in quite some time this Sunday, they’ll be traveling to Indianapolis for the first time since 2010.
Their last road game was a trip way back on November 18th when they took out the Atlanta Falcons. Since then they’ve taken care of the Washington Redskins, New Orleans Saints, and Philadelphia Eagles at home. Sometimes that’s just the way NFL scheduling works.
We’ve actually seen the movie we’re watching before with the Cowboys. They’re about to take on the Colts with a chance to clinch the NFC East a week after their star wide receiver dropped three touchdowns on the Philadelphia Eagles. These were the exact same circumstances surrounding the team four years ago during Jason Garrett’s first division title.
To win the division the Cowboys will have to be able to handle the likes of Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton and everything else Frank Reich is able to cook up. There’ll also be a familiar face opposite the Cowboys offense as their former linebackers coach and passing game coordinator Matt Eberflus is in his first season with Indy as defensive coordinator.
It’s been hard to find anything lately that will stop Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper from putting up enough points for the Hot Boyz to defend. DeMarcus Lawrence, Leighton Vander Esch, Jaylon Smith, Tyrone Crawford and all the rest are surely ready to put on some caps and t-shirts.
Let’s hope that happens this Sunday.
