Atlanta Falcons (4-4) at Dallas Cowboys (6-2)

Sunday, November 14, 1PM ET

Prior to last weekend, I don’t think anyone would have even second guessed the Dallas Cowboys in this one. Then they failed to show up against the Broncos, and now there are some concerns about this team’s ability to keep the wins coming.

It doesn’t help that they’re going up against an Atlanta Falcons team that has shown plenty of grit this season. The wins were hard to come by for Atlanta early on, but they’ve since buckled down and are playing exceptional football. The defense is a question mark, but the offense is picking up momentum.

So can the Cowboys get it together in Week 10? I think so. Despite flailing this past weekend, Dak Prescott and Co. seem destined to shine against an underwhelming Atlanta defense. Look for the Cowboys to score early and often in this one.

Ultimately, it’ll come down to whether or not the Dallas defense can put the clamps on Cordarrelle Patterson, Matt Ryan and the Falcons offense. Atlanta will score their own fair share of points, but not quite enough to take down the Cowboys.

Prediction: Cowboys win 28-23 | Spread: Cowboys (-9.5)
