    Cowboys Offense In-Line For Another Big Day Vs. Lions

    There's no doubt the 2019 Cowboys have been disappointing through the first half of the season. But one area which has actually surpassed expectations has been their , specifically their passing attack.

    Despite the loss Sunday night, Dallas' offense still ranks first in DVOA- ahead of high powered attacks like the ones in Kansas City, Baltimore, and Seattle. Things have fallen into place for Dallas' offense nearly perfectly, with positioning himself among the elite passers in the league, and having a breakout season at .

    This week's matchup is yet another favorable one for this Cowboys offense, as the come in reeling on the defensive side of the ball. Detroit ranks 25th overall in terms of defensive DVOA, and have been equally below average against both the run and pass (23rd and 20th in DVOA respectively).

    Roster talent wise, there isn't a ton to get excited about on the Lions . Where last week's opponent had potential game breakers on each level of their defense, Detroit's talent is much more modest.

    Still, acquisition Trey Flowers has proven to be a solid and Damon “Snacks” Harrison has long been an elite run stuffer on the interior. In the back end, Darius Slay is a legit number one , but even he isn't enough to bolster this unit on his own.

    In theory, the Cowboys should be able to get whatever they want offensively against the Lions this week, making it imperative they remain aggressive through the air. coached teams love to try to “impose their will” with their and run game, but this is yet another week where the Cowboys' biggest advantage is likely driven by Dak Prescott and .

    If all works according to plan the Cowboys will be able to utilize Prescott to win this game, and then lean on to kill clock late. The exact formula we had hoped for heading into the season months ago.

    Of course, this would require something the Cowboys haven't really done whatsoever this season: start fast offensively.

    But if you look at the remaining schedule, it's really now or never for this version of the .
