    This is so true! The thing about Belichick is if what he is doing doesnt seem to be working he will make in game adjustments until he figures it out. Garrett in the other hand needs a week to install changes on this team. I suspect Belichick will send 7 guys after Dak and play man to man forcing Dak to make quick reads with accurate throws. Zeke wont be able to run because 7 or 8 guys will be charging through and tackle him on the way to Dak. The Cowboys are a terrible screen team which hurts them in this game. Dak wont have time to throw deep either. The Patriots will leave Dak one option and that nobody fears and thats Witten.

    If Dak can perform well against New England that will be a huge feather in his cap.

    I am not saying "this is his real test or anything" but if he does, that means he really knows what he is doing reading the defense.

    I mean NE gives even the best QB's fits, but if he can overcome the confusion they create....huge feather in the cap!

    If Dak gets some big runs it will put NE on their heels and game plan gets thrown out the window.

    The Pats wont care about Dak putting up 400 Yards Passing which he wont either way against this D.

    They will only take care that they slice up this hot garbage Defense the Cowboys have. Dak cant outscore that basically on himself. This is not the Lions.

    I think they mix things up against Dak and Co., playing to what the cowboys tendencies show.

    The Pats will kill the Cowboys defense in the middle of the field and by leaking the RB or TE out on pass plays. They will also be extremely tough to score on in the red zone. The Pats will take a big advantage of the Cowboys poor special teams play.

    Dak has weapons now and a coach that understands offense.

    I would think that eventually, people are going to figure out they can stop Zeke with a 4 man line and just play nickel or dime the whole time.

    We will lose game like that until they figure out that Pollard is better than Zeke.

    You are probably on to something. I think NO didn't stack the box, and was able to stop EzE.

    Most teams stack the box on first down with a team that can run the ball. Its certainly been happening to Zeke his entire career. Problem is that he cant do what he used to do when it happens.

    The Cowboys (on offense) can beat the Patriots if …

    Dak uses his legs more.
    We commit zero turnovers.
    We control the clock.

    Better super bowl winning coaching staff and preparation. Philly always plays NE close,5 of last 6 meetings have been one possession games.

    If they're so good at preparation, why couldn't they beat the Cowboys, with a bunch of ailing OL and a crappy Defense?

    They had a bad game and got beat. It happens to the best of them. They are starting to get players of their own back. You need breaks in games. Sometimes all the preparation in the world isn't going to help. It's just not in the cards for you.

    Philly got beat in an ugly brawl yesterday against New England. Because the players they have with issues are still there after their magical run. Nelson Agholor makes that 4th down td catch in 2017. It's dropped now. Alshon Jeffery is as Dez like and inconsistent as ever. Matter of fact almost nonexistent now.

    England isn't going to be a cake walk. It's obvious Brady has hit the wall but he can still make enough plays to win.

    It's possible we could win. We totally blew the 2011 game the last time new England looked vulnerable.

    I just have beaten dog syndrome with this team against Belichick.

    Agreed. 21 needs to step up. Hope Kellen loads up the run game—lots of Pollard, multiple RB formations, use the TEs and FB, quick tempo, RPOs, etc.

    That's all I'm saying...We have as good a chance as Philly had, as long as we do well what we're capable of doing well.
