Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys are coming from a heartbreaker versus the Minnesota Vikings. They lost the game with a 28-24 final score. QB Dak Prescott was undaunted, however. He threw in quality plays, going 28/46 with 397 passing plays. He connected 3 big thrown TDs and a pick. Ezekiel Elliott followed his stats closely. He ran 20 carries for a total of 47 yards. Meanwhile, Amari Cooper caught the ball 11 times. He further added 147 yards to the team’s gains. 

The Cowboys started strong in the season but are now floundering due to heartbreaking losses. The stats tell the rest of the story. The Dallas Cowboys implemented 24 first-downs with a minimum of 5 penalties. They rushed for 22 out of 70 plays, a clear sign of mixed offense. The Cowboys gained 443 yards, while their opponent gained 364. The gap is significant but it looks like the Cowboys got left behind due to the opponent’s superior yards-to-points conversion. 

The Cowboys’ lackluster defense was also to blame for their loss. They allowed a 72% completion rate on throws and were unable to hold down 36 rush attempts. In the end, these sorts of plays rang the death knell in their previous matchup.

Detroit Lions

The Lions are emerging from an equally heartbreaking previous game. They collided with the Chicago Bears but were forced to submit with a 20-13 endgame score. QB Jeff Driskel was scored 1 thrown TD and a pick. He was the shining spot in the offense, with 27/46 and 269 air yards contributed. Their RB tirelessly charged through 5 carries, but he didn’t score any rushing touchdowns.

Meanwhile, their top receiver caught the ball 5 times, further adding 77 yards to yardage gained.

The Lions have middle-tier offense capability. However, they’re at a huge disadvantage with regard to their defensive performance. For example, they allowed a 70% throw completion rate in their previous matchup. The Lions weren’t able to find answers for 24 rush attempts either. With this in mind, it’s not difficult to see why they got out-scored. 

It’s time to formulate more options for defense. The Lions should put this at their top priority, or risk going on a losing streak with their remaining games for the season.
