Friday before Gameday: what will the cowboys do this week?
The Cowboys (3-2) have had quite the rollercoaster of a season. From three straight wins to two losses, Will they beat the JEts (0-4) this week?
Following a tough 4th week loss to the New Orleans Saints, the Cowboys didn’t bounce back when facing the Green Bay Packers this last week. So, what should fans anticipate for the matchup against the winless New York Jets in week 6?
Our prediction? The Cowboys Offense will cause nightmares for the Jets’ secondary with their dangerous wide-receiver duo: Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup.
Amari Cooper received a TON of attention in last weeks game. He was targeted 14 times and scored for the fifth time in five games. We anticipate a lot of upfield shots to Cooper this week. Check out his TD connection against the Packers this last week:
Michael Gallup, who was also targeted 14 times, is expected to tear apart the Jets’ secondary. Gallup was a star against the Packers with 7 catches, 113 yards, and a touchdown. He was also on the field for 87% of the snaps after missing the previous two games to injury. Here was the play of the game with Dak launching a late game bomb to Gallup:
Although the Cowboys are coming off two straight losses, it is unlikely that the ‘Boys offense will fail to deliver a W against the weak New York Jets (0-4). Cowboys fans should get excited to see a potentially high scoring game, as the Jets have allowed an average of 30.5 points in the last two games alone. But, don’t jump the gun and consider it a win just yet — Sam Darnold, the starting Jets Quarterback, is back this week after battling mono since Week 1.
We turn the mic to you, Cowboys and Jets fans, who do YOU think will win this week? Will Dak and his powerhouse receivers shred the Jet’s defense? Or will the return of Sam Darnold spell an upset for the ‘Boys?
