3 hot takes for the Cowboys vs Colts in Week 13

We're officially two days away until the take on the on . While I'm typically excited to see the Cowboys play every week, I'm not too jazzed about this game.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE watching the Cowboys, and it's an SNF game — which always has energy each week.

But it's the Colts, and they are not so good.

Despite that, you can catch me tuning in. Also, expect a from me.

So, with that in mind, I wanted to drop three hot takes for a game I envision as heavily favored by the Cowboys. Expect to hear how I see the game playing out, a breakout performance from a wideout, and about a who will lead his team in receiving and rushing.

1. The game is over by the 3rd quarter, and the Cowboys rest for next week.

As mentioned, this game is shaping up to be a snoozefest. While the excitement, glamour, and fireworks will be on the Cowboys' side, you may see some spurts from the Colts.

But given how the Colts have played this season, there is no reason the Cowboys should lose. So with that in mind, I'm predicting the Boys to come out on fire and dominate the Colts through three quarters.

QB and the have been on fire, and the Colts won't be able to hold them. Also, add that Indy enters this game on a short week — the Boys will be well-rested and ready to go on Sunday night.

We will get a sighting in the fourth quarter.

2. It's the Michael Gallup show, as he leads wideouts on Sunday.

When WR returned from his ACL this season, you could make the case that he looked rusty — and widely inefficient. But, in recent weeks, it's looking like he's returning to his old form.

With all of the attention on wideout , Gallup has been getting his looks, and you saw it last week. Also, add that CB will likely shadow Lamb, and Kenny Moore II is listed as doubtful — Gallup should have a very favorable matchup.

Gallup had his best game last week, as he made tough catches in traffic and displayed his physicality on every play. Expect him to be a problem on Sunday.

3. RB Jonathan Taylor leads the Colts in receiving and rushing.

If you're an NFL fan, you can't deny that running back is an All-Pro and is in the criteria of elite running backs. Everyone and the Cowboys know that Taylor is the Colts' best weapon, and they will key in on him.

While they may get stops here and there, I'm riding with him finishing as the Colts' receiving and rushing leader. The tenacious Cowboys' will be a problem for QB , as he has been sacked the most this season.

To counter the pass rush, look for the Colts to run the ball, scheme short, quick routes, and dump the ball to Taylor. Although Indy will likely lose, Taylor will shine.
