Fresh of a comeback win against the Texans, the Patriots will look to parlay their late-game magic into an upset win over the Dallas Cowboys.
The New England Patriots looked extremely sluggish through three quarters against the Houston Texans. Trailing 22-9, the Patriots outscored Houston 16-7 in the second half. A last minute field goal completed the comeback and netted New England their second win. Will The Patriots be able to build off their late-game momentum against Dallas? Here’s what to expect.
The Cowboys will yield the Patriots pass rush
New England has done a very good job at getting to the quarterback this year. They are tied for fifth in sacks per game. Matt Judon continues to prove that of all the Patriots’ free agent signings, he was the best. Josh Uche has also done his fair share of getting to the quarterback.
While the Patriots have gotten constant pressure, the Cowboys have done a good job of keeping Dak Prescott clean. He’s been sacked just seven times through five games, which ranks near the bottom of the league. New England will have a tough time dealing with the dynamic Cowboys offense. They may get to Dak once or twice, but the Cowboys offensive line should keep their quarterback relatively clean.
