Why We’ll See a Different Cowboys Team VS Titans

So far, the Dallas Cowboys season hasn’t gone very well. Through seven games, they hold a record under .500 and aim to change that next Monday night when they play the 3-4 under the lights. With four losses of their own, there are many things the Cowboys need to change in order to have a legitimate chance of being on the come January.

The came at the perfect time in Dallas after the most painful loss of the year when Brett Maher’s kick bounced off the field goal post to end the game 17-20 in favor of the . The Cowboys made tons of mistakes throughout the game, the offense was inefficient, yet they still had a chance to take to overtime but didn’t. Ouch.

Enter the bye week, a perfect opportunity to get the team back on track and try to spark things up. And although and still are at the wheel, changes were indeed made to try to turn the ship around in Dallas.

Whether or not that will be enough to turn the into a legit contender within the East remains to be seen. However, I’m confident in saying this team will look very different when they host the Titans at on .

Let’s start by the elephant in the room. The Cowboys engaged in a blockbuster that sent a pick to the in exchange of WR . Now, let’s leave the “Who won the trade?” question for another time. Let’s focus on Cooper the player.

The “Dak-friendly” offense that allegedly didn’t need a #1 proved to be a failure. The truth is that a big part of the problem offensively was the lack of talent at the position. simply isn’t playing as expected, Tavon Austin is out with an and has flashed but has lacked opportunities to prove his worth.

Amari Cooper changes that a ton. The impact he makes on offense will be felt immediately. His strength is route-running, which will help a QB that needs a receiver that creates separation not named . I can assure you prior to the Cooper addition, the only scary threat on the Cowboys’ receiving core was Beasley.

Probably the most surprising situation for the 2018 Cowboys has been the poor play by the . After opening the season with many mistakes, and more by a very talented unit, OL Coach was fired days ago. Taking his place is , and with him come high hopes in seeing this unit play at the level they were expected to in the .

, and La’el Collins have been very disappointing and despite one of them being a rookie and another being a veteran with a complicated injury , they should simply be playing way better than they are right now.

Even though the change is recent, I expect Colombo to help this unit put on their best performance of the year.

If the offensive line keeps the pocket clean for to connect with his receivers (among which will be two-time Pro-Bowler Amari Cooper) and opens running lanes for Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys’ offense should be able to do enough to win the game at least thanks to the .

It won’t necessarily mean the Cowboys are suddenly a contending team, but I expect a big win against a Titans team that hasn’t been able to get going on offense. With this defense against a -led offense, this might end up with a similar scoreboard than the Jaguars game on week 6.
