Game Day Preview: The Cowboys Face Yet Another Stellar Defensive Unit

The Dallas Cowboys find themselves in the “Mile High” city, taking on the Denver Broncos in week two. Fresh off a Sunday Night victory against the New York Giants, the Cowboys will experience a lot of similarities in this one. 

The Broncos are loaded on defense, highlighted by Von Miller, and may actually be even better towards the back end of that defense, with Chris Harris Jr. and Aqib Thalib lining up against the pass. 

On offense is where I believe they will run into problems throughout the season. Trevor Semian looked okay in his debut against the Los Angeles Chargers, showing his ability to scramble, but when the game got tight towards the end, he fizzled and had very little impact. 

Dallas, meanwhile has one of the best offensive units in the league, and I feel like as long as Ezekiel Elliott is able to move the chains behind that offensive line, Dak Prescott and his receivers will be able to make the plays to keep Denver’s defense gassed throughout, very similar to how they handled the Giants’ defense last week. 

While the ping pong battle between Ezekiel Elliott/NFLPA and the NFL continues day in and day out, it remains unclear how long we can expect Elliott to be available this season. The Cowboys must take advantage of having him on the field for as long as he’s available. 


I feel that the Cowboys offense will be able to exploit Denver’s running defense, and Prescott will be able to make some of the plays he missed on last week. While the Cowboys’ defense looked tough last week against a Beckham-less New York offense, they won’t face that much of a threat in Semian and the Broncos offensive attack. Cowboys win 27-17.
