The Baltimore Ravens lead the NFC North with a 5-4 record and are heading to Big D to play a Cowboys team that have the best record in the NFL at 8-1 after winning a nail biter in Pittsburgh last week.
The Ravens are on a two-Game winning streak, but they still rank 20th in passing offense and 28th in rushing. Ravens’ QB Joe FlACCo has thrown for 9 touchdowns and 9 interceptions this season and just like his stat line the Ravens have been up and down all year. The Ravens did find a steal in the offseason by picking up speedster Mike Wallace who has 43 receptions and 673 yards receiving to go with 4 touchdowns.
Joe FlACCo helped lead the Ravens to a Superbowl by throwing deep routes to Torrey Smith. He must do the same with Wallace this weekend to give them any shot of winning in Dallas. The Cowboys do have a banged up secondary so look for the Ravens to take shots down field with Wallace and Steve Smith.
The Cowboys have one of the best offenses in the league lead by rookie QB Dak Prescott and MVP candidate Ezekiel Elliot at running back. The Cowboys have officially handed the starter title to Dak with a now healthy Tony Romo gracefully ACCepting the back-up position.
The rookie QB has a stellar QBR of 83 and has thrown for 14 touchdowns and only 2 interceptions. The Cowboys used their 4th pick in this year’s draft on running back Ezekiel Elliott and it has paid off tremendously. The rookie running back has racked up a whopping 1,005 yards rushing and 9 touchdowns. This Game will be very winnable for Dallas, but look for a close one against the Ravens.
The Ravens are known to play up to their competition and are well coached so this should be a competitive Game in Dallas. In the end the Cowboys continue their dominaNCe over the league with them pulling away in the second half. Cowboys -7
