    Cowboys Headlines - Who will Lead the Cowboys Defense in 2016? 1Your Dallas Cowboys Defense

    Expert Consensus Ranking: 27
    My Ranking: 23

    In my sometimes humble opinion, the was not as bad as people would have you think. Yes, they only sacked twice. Two by the Dallas Cowboys isn't so bad against a team that gets the ball out quickly.

    Of quarterbacks who attempted at least 400 passes in 2015, only six quarterbacks were sacked fewer than Eli Manning. He had the 3rd lowest sack percentage at 4.2%, behind and .

    This week, the Dallas Cowboys face the and .

    Kirk Cousins played well against the Dallas Cowboys in 2015. In both games, he completed more than 70% of his passes and didn't turn the ball over. He was sacked a combined three times in the two games.

    The is not as much of a concern. Matt Jones and Chris Thompson only totaled 47 yards on 11 carries. While that is a good yard per carry average, they abandoned the run early. Matt Jones hasn't been the most efficient back in his career.

    I don't like this matchup this week. They will be looking to get on track offensively after stalling out against the in week one.

    Yes, and the beat the stink-o defense. But I'm with Hue Jackson… it was one game.

    The Chicago Bears had two sacks, forced a fumble, and one interception against Brock Osweiler and the .

    Now the league is getting game film on the rookie. I think the Chicago Bears will have a solid to disrupt Wentz and force some turnovers.

    Flawless Forecast: 10 points against, 4 sacks, 2 interceptions.

    One to Sit

    Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs

    Expert Consensus Ranking: 9
    My Ranking: 11

    Fantasy Football - Fantasy Football Team Defense Rankings - Week 2 2The Houston Texans defense had a really good day against the Chicago Bears on opening day.

    They combined for five sacks, one fumble recovery, and one interception.

    This week they face the , who are a much better offensive team than the Chicago Bears. They are limited by 's inability to get the ball downfield. Because they get the ball out of Smith's hand quickly, it limits the amount of pressure opposing defenses can put on the quarterback.

    I believe in as an offensive coach. He will come up with a good game plan to combat the Houston Texans .
