Regardless of how good the Dallas Cowboys’ offensive line is, the talent behind center is the real key. The Cowboys will be forced to start Brandon Weeden who has lost his last eight games in a row. Look for Vic Beasley to be hungry and to want to make that nine games in a row.

If the Falcons’ secondary can shut down the Dallas receiving corps, the pass rush will get to Weeden. And his inexperience will play right into the Falcons’ pass rushers’ hands. Once Weeden starts moving around in the pocket, offensive lineman will have to move too which will be bad for them and great for us.

Beasley will use his quickness to wreak havoc on the Cowboys’ O-line and force Weeden into some pressure situations. Watch to see how Beasley plays against a good O-line, but against a bad quarterback.
