3. Game will feature an offensive showing

New England, led by veteran quarterback and future Hall-of-Famer Tom Brady under center, have held a solid offense really since the quarterback broke into the league about 20 years ago. Such has been the case once again up to this point in the 2019 season this year.

Coming into the contest on Sunday evening at Gillette Stadium, Brady and the Patriots are averaging 359.5 overall yards per game, along with averaging 5.1 yards per play while averaging 28.7 points per contest.

Among the rest of the NFL, New England ranks 16th in total offensive yards, 24th in yards per play and is currently third in the league in points per game. Dallas, on the other hand, holds one of the more powerful offenses in the NFL through 11 weeks of action in the 2019 season to this point.

The Cowboys, led by quarterback Dak Prescott and his potentially MVP-caliber season and running back Ezekiel Elliott, have recorded an average of 444.6 total yards per game this year, along with averaging 6.7 yards per play with 28.6 points per matchup in 10 games.

Dallas currently ranks first in both total yards per game and yards per play throughout the league, while ranking fourth in the NFL in points per game.

The game will feature two of the more powerful offensive units in the league on Sunday evening in Foxborough, which will make for an entertaining and potentially high scoring showdown. The team whose defense is able to step up more will likely put themselves in a good spot to pull out the win at the end of the game.
