Predictions: Week 11 at Atlanta
- Nathan Jones (@natn03)
Atlanta has not shown the ability to consistently stop the run or the pass, yet the Cowboys have not shown the ability to constantly run or pass the ball on offense. I feel the game will come down to: who creates a lead first. If the Cowboys can score and cause a few stops on defense early, they can lean on Zeke and the offensive line. Atlanta has big-time playmakers on their offense, and the Cowboys would not be able to win in a shootout game. My prediction is that the game is scoreless heading into the 2nd quarter, and Dallas will rely heavily on Ezekiel Elliott and score a TD. They run with him the whole game. Elliott will end with 100+ yards for the second straight game. Cooper will be a chain mover, but Cole Beasley will lead the team in receptions and yards. Look for Byron Jones to have his first interception of the year, but also allow his first touchdown of the year too. The Cowboys will win the game 24-17, keep their playoff hopes alive, and head home to gear up against the Washington Redskins on Thanksgiving day

Since joining the league in the 2016 season, Dak has yet to throw for more than 350 yards in a single game. Keyword– yet. Due to the fact the Falcons’ secondary have been dismantled by injury, I expect Dak to have a field day. With the Cowboys’ young core of receivers showing tremendous promise, I believe Prescott will surprise everyone and throw for 350+ yards and two or three touchdowns. This is going to be a shootout, but I believe the Cowboys will come out on top. Having Zeke in this game compared to the last time the Cowboys faced the Falcons, will open up the passing game. Don’t be surprised if Dak has a career day. Cowboys win a fun one: 38-24

The Atlanta Falcons have been unsuccessful on defense all season. They cannot defend the run and this week they will face Ezekiel Elliott. My bold prediction is that Michael Gallup has a great game and is Dallas’ number one receiver with 100 plus receiving yards. I believe the Cowboys won’t have a problem running the ball as well this Sunday, however, I don’t expect the Cowboys to generate much pressure on Matt Ryan with all the injuries on the defensive line. My concern is with all the skill players on the Falcons. Throughout the seasons, Atlanta has been able to put the ball in the hands of their playmakers. I believe the Cowboys defense will play nearly perfect defense on early downs, but expect big chunk plays that will exhaust this team. It will be a high scoring game, but the Falcons get a win at home. 33-28.
