5 Dallas Cowboys the Atlanta Falcons must watch closely in week 10
1. Micah Parsons is Cordarrelle Patterson for the Dallas Cowboys defense
Micah Parsons has been fun to watch this season in an overachieving Dallas Cowboys defense. Parsons has already talked about Patterson ahead of their matchup and made the comparison that they are both football players.
Parsons can drop into pass coverage, stop the run, rush the passer, or sit in the middle of the field and make a play. He can change the game in a hurry in favor of Dallas if Ryan isn’t careful to know where he is and manipulate the rookie.
As good as Parsons has been he is a rookie who has been fooled more than once this season. Ryan needs to use his veteran savvy to keep Parsons off balance no matter where he is lining up.
This is an interesting matchup as well between two of the most successful of this year’s draft class. Whether or not Parsons is used on Kyle Pitts is an interesting story to watch early in this game.
Do the Cowboys like the match-up of Parsons and help or will they attempt to put their top corner on him as the Panthers did? This is an early story to watch, whoever Dallas has on Pitts is going to directly influence the Atlanta game plan especially if the next player on this list is asked to guard the unicorn.
