What’s your prediction?
SM: These games are so hard to predict, simply because I spend a majority of my time studying only one team. But I do believe it will be a very close contest. I give the slight edge to the Cowboys mainly due to their kicker, Dan Bailey.
I think the Cowboys offensive line and resurgent defense will balance out the Falcons passing attack, And if this game comes down to field goals, which I believe it will, the hometown kicker has the advantage. Final score: Cowboys 30, Falcons 24.
Blogging Dirty would like to thank Steven for talking to us ahead of the game and giving us his take on the outcome, although we hope his prediction is wrong. To go behind enemy lines and get a Cowboys spin on the game, head over to The Landry Hat.
This is going to be a great battle between the Atlanta’s high-flying offense and Dallas’ top defense. Brandon Weeden will look to keep things moving on offense for the Cowboys, but expect to see plenty of the run game. It’s going to be an intriguing game for sure.
