Cowboys Wishlist: Defense Gets Back to Its Old Form

It's gameday! The are one win away from taking home the title and they aim to get it against the . After a disappointing outing in Indianapolis last week, it's time to make things right.

Here's this week's edition of ! I hope you enjoy.

Wish #1: Double Digit Win

After falling 23-0 to the , many have doubted the legitimacy of this football team. As the Cowboys get ready to face a mediocre like the one from Tampa, a win will not suffice to calm down our doubts and concerns.

I wish the Cowboys blowout the Bucs by double digits. It will surely ease 's minds going into the against tougher teams.

Cowboys Have Perfect Bounce Back Opportunity Against the Spiraling Buccaneers

Wish #2: Reduce Ezekiel Elliott's Workload

Recently the Dallas Cowboys promoted to the . I loved this move. has received a tremendous amount of touches this season. Two weeks away from postseason football, it'd be nice to watch the Cowboys give him a break.

If the Cowboys get in control of this game early, I really hope we get to see a lot from and Darius Jackson. Zeke certainly deserves some rest. We want him to be 100% in January.

Wish #3: Exploit Buc's Weak Red Zone Defense

As bad as the Cowboys' is, they'll face their match as they get ready to face the worst red zone defense in the . This is the perfect opportunity for Scott  Linehan's unit to get things right. Both play-calling and execution need to be better when inside the 20.

Hopefully, and company figure out a way to score six points instead of three when knocking on the opponent's door. Truth be told, if this football team figures out this phase of the game, they're a dangerous team in the Playoffs.

Wish #4: Defense Gets Back To Its Old Form

The Cowboys' defense has been one of the best in the NFL this season. At all levels, and have been able to put together an elite group that can stop anyone in the league. However, led by Andrew Luck and Marlon Mack, the Colts made this defense look like a pretty bad one last Sunday.

Tackles were missed, angles were awful, QB pressure was nonexistent and coverages were blown. Not even or shined. It was simply a terrible effort. Lining up against a capable offense, it's time to get back on track.
