    The Dallas Cowboys are ready for battle – Or are they?

    Fire the cannons because the Dallas Cowboys are ready for war.

    The Cowboys are coming off an impressive 22-10 win against the defending champions, the , this past Sunday. The Dallas once again held the opposing team to just one touchdown, and the ‘Boys are starting to look like a complete team.

    With a huge divisional match-up against the undefeated looming this Sunday on national television, it’s time for the Cowboys to show the world who they truly are.

    The are heavily relying on their defense and while starting heals from the broken thumb he suffered during . When Prescott got injured, it seemed all hope was lost for the Cowboys this year, especially after the putrid performance they displayed against the – and trust me, fans have not forgotten just how awful their quarterback and team played.

    But the Cowboys didn’t flinch. The Cowboys have marched out onto the field for four weeks straight and have stacked wins against every team they have played since week 1. This Dallas defense is wrecking opposing offenses and is single-handedly winning these games. But is that sustainable?

    Yes — defense wins championships. But sooner or later the Cowboys are going to have to put up more points to win games and rely on the to extend drives for them in tough matchups against offenses that know how to score points.

    This past week against the Rams, completed only 10 of his sixteen pass attempts and threw for only 102 yards with zero touchdowns. The Cowboys only obtained 10 first downs the entire game. That is not a winning formula for football.

    The Philadelphia Eagles do not have any weaknesses across the board. They have skilled players at every position and can hurt you in many different ways. and the Eagles can score points, and it will be interesting to see how the Cowboys can match those points with an offense that is severely struggling.

    To beat this Eagles team, the Cowboys need to be complete on all sides of the ball.

    The Cowboys defense cannot carry this team each and every week. was seen during the game against the visibly in pain and seemed to be banged up. The defense needs help from their offense, and this is the week to put together the best yet for Cooper Rush and company. With a mobile quarterback and a high-powered offense that the Eagles have, this defense is going to need help on the other side of the ball if the Cowboys want to win this game.

    It is hard to imagine how good this offense can be until Dak Prescott returns, but this weekend on against the Eagles, the Cowboys need to get all of their pieces together to pull out a win and take the lead of their division.

    Pump the brakes there a little. Eagles have one game where they scored over 30 points, and that was a shootout against the hapless Lions (who just got shutout by the Pats, 29-0), back in the first game of the year, and that was a pretty close game. They’re schedule has been pretty soft so far, whereas the Cowboys have already beaten both Super Bowl teams from last year, and a surprising 4-1 Giants.

    Disagree that the offense is “severely struggling”. Only game where they scored less than 20 points was the opener against the Bucs when DP put up 3 pathetic points on offense.

    My biggest fear for this weekend is Jalen Hurts gashing us up the middle ala Daniel Jones as the pass rush abandons their gaps and get too far upfield.They need to either play with more gap discipline against Hurts or use a bigger, faster spy than Donovan Wilson. Parsons would be ideal in that role, but they seem more interested in using him as a pass rusher. Maybe Jayron Kearse if he’s close enough to 100%? Maybe Jabril Cox in place of Barr?

    Wilson missed too many tackles against Daniel Jones. Hurts is a better runner than Jones. Doesn’t exactly bode well for Wilson.
