    Cowboys Need Another Strong Performance From DE Dorance Armstrong vs Chiefs

    It was a major blow to the and their when was put on after injuring his calf last week. As is the case when any big-time player goes down it created an opportunity for someone to step up in his absence. Dorance Armstrong, who's been with the Cowboys since 2018 and is currently in a contract season, rose to the challenge against the in Week 10.

    Armstrong's performance was arguably his best since entering the NFL. He set the in the run game and got pressure on not only from the outside but by stunting inside also. The former fourth-round pick finished with three tackles (one for loss), three hits, and a blocked punt which was recovered for a touchdown by rookie . He became the first player in Cowboys with a sack and a blocked punt in the same game. Also, he's the first player in the NFL to accomplish that since his current teammate in 2019 when he was a member of the .

    The three quarterback hits were the most Armstrong has ever had in a game. It equaled his total in that category from his rookie season, was one shy of what he had in 2019, and is two more than he had all of last season.

    For the so far, the Chiefs rank third in passing yards per game. This means that Armstrong will need to put together another big performance. Whether it be from the edge or the interior, Armstrong has to find a way to be in the face of and keep him flustered. He'll need to be stout against the run as well with Clyde Edwards-Helaire returning from a knee to join Darrel Williams.

    The talent has always been there with Armstrong. He had a minor setback earlier in the season when he missed four games due to a high ankle sprain. However, last week against the Falcons, he showed that he can be a valuable piece to the Cowboys' , he just needs to show it consistently.

    DA is a good player that, by way of others injuries, is getting a chance to show his capable ability and appears to be gaining some momentum. We need him to have another strong performance against a tough opponent today.
