The Dallas Cowboys face the New England Patriots in Week 6 of the 2021 NFL Season. Here are five bold predictions for that game.
It’s been a long time since the Dallas Cowboys were able to knock off the New England Patriots. While they are ahead 7-6 all-time against the Pats, Dallas has lost the past six contests.
The last time they tasted victory over New England was way back in 1996 when Troy Aikman was starting for America’s Team against Drew Bledsoe who was in just his fourth season in the NFL.
Now for the first time since the 90s, it feels as though Dallas has a legit chance to knock off the Patriots. The Cowboys enter this game with a record of 4-1 and are playing well on both sides of the ball. New England, on the other hand, is still looking for their post-Tom Brady footing as they enter the game with a record of 2-3.
With all that being said, we look ahead to this weekend and make five bold predictions for Dallas as they travel to Foxborough in Week 6.
Dallas Cowboys bold prediction No. 5: Cedrick Wilson throws for a TD
During their Week 5 win, Dallas offensive coordinator Kellen Moore got a little creative as he dialed up a pass from Cedrick Wilson to Noah Brown. The play worked as Brown got free in the secondary and Wilson hit him for a 22-yard gain. But it could have worked better.
Wilson’s pass was a little underthrown which led to Brown having to stop his momentum. Had the pass been on target, he likely takes that ball to the house.
This first bold prediction is that Moore goes back to the well and has Wilson airing it out again, this time connecting for a touchdown – which would be the second of his career as he’s currently 3-of-3 for 45-yards including a touchdown pass to Dak Prescott last season.
