    A good defense and the league's leading rusher. That sounds like a tough opponent. Hope we get some turnovers to help us out.

    Yes.

    I am looking foward how we handle their RB and Cousins. Later is very good on artigucial turf this year. I am glad he is missing his deep threat

    IMO, our offense should be up to the challenge. Everyone’s as healthy as can be reasonably expected, going into game-9. We’re coming off two strong performances against a solid Philly team and an admittedly weak NYG squad. The play-calling and execution in both games seemed solid and Dak is making use of all his weapons.

    On the other side of the ball, although LVE is out, we’ve gotten strong play from the D-line and LBs (love the Bennett acquisition). Clean up a few things and our D should give Cousins a tough game.

    Just as our defense limited Saquon last week, they will limit Cook this week. I'm not really concerned about their running game and Cousin's arm isn't going to beat us. I think the Cowboys win this one... 31-17.

    I hope we are able too. But this should be the way to go. Cousins is not good when feeling a rush.

    I hope we are not again stubborn and dial up some blitzes.

    We are able to limit good RBs when there is no other thing that can beat us.

    Just look at the GB game and Aaron Rodgers. His back is just average. But a great QB made him look like the GOAT. I hope we can handle Cousins well enough and make this game one dimensional.

    Dont forget Cousins this season has a passer rating of 8x when playing on grass but 13x on artificial turf.

    This will be our first big test. I am looking forward to it.

    When we are healthy we are almost unbeatable. We did not have a healthy O-line for the GB game. No way we were going to keep up with them. But that average back of theirs did have too good of a game, you're right. We failed our first two big tests (Saints and GB). We passed our 4th big test(Philly) and now we face our 5th big test(Vikings).

    The Vikings are a good defense because they play hard. The play hard, and confident, on offense too. The Cowboys need to match the Vikings' intensity with their own.

    Last few games it looks like either Marinelli is dialing it up or Richard is. Looking better for sure.

    I agree, the present game is important to win but I wouldn't trade it for our win over Philly.

    Cover 2 with rangey safeties, a good defensive front, a Kubiak zone blocking scheme with a really good/great RB?

    If we play a Dallas game where we have multiple drops, poorly timed penalties, a slow start, and get blown up in a zone run scheme, we can definitely lose this game.

    I wouldnt either. Philly was a big game too at that point. And regardless of that beating them always feels sweet.

    I haven't watched any Vikings yet, so I'm stuck reading stuff to get a feel for what they're really like. Unfortunately I don't trust most of the online writers.

    I think it's going to be a good game. Probably get a little nervous here & there, but I really don't feel scared of them.
