Can Osa Odighizuwa be the X-Factor Against the Buccaneers?

We are less than a week away from the taking on the on Thursday night in Tampa, FL. Ratings may be at an all-time high for a week one matchup as both teams feature talented stars who can make an impact.

Cowboys rookie defensive  who talked with Cowboys news reporter, Jori Epstein, harped on how important he and the other defensive tackles will need to rush and get after Bucs .

“Not too mobile.” “Get him off the spot, his goes down by a lot,” Osa tells us. “So our (DT) role is super important this week as far as getting after him, rushing our butts off.”

Odighizuwa was constantly in the backfield and making plays during the , he will start the first few weeks at the 3-tech spot. Besides Odighizuwa, the 3-tech position has question marks as will begin the year on IR and will start the year on PUP (Physically Unable to Perform List).

Dallas will be counting on to help Odighizuwa early and often to give the some strong push and make it hard for Brady and Co to run their . Odighizuwa says he is up for the task as he pointed out Brady not being very mobile is his biggest weakness as he and the rest of the defensive line will look to collapse the pocket on the 7-time Champion.

No doubt Odighizuwa has all the talent in the world and will be a good player for years to come, but Brady has not only survived but been dominant in this league for the past 21 years. So many have tried to gameplan on his immobility but Brady makes up for it with his work ethic and timing as he gets the ball out quicker than almost any QB in .

This is not to say Odighizuwa cannot cause havoc or be a difference-maker, it will take all 11 men on to get Brady off of his game as he looks to put on a show in prime-time fashion. Brady will be looking to prove he still has a few more campaigns left while the Cowboys are aiming for the upset on the defending champions.

Six days from now, we will get to witness if Odighizuwa is up for the challenge and becomes the x-factor the Dallas defense anxiously needs.
