The Dallas Cowboys are looking good with their vaunted offense. Aside from Prescott, there is also Ezekiel Elliott and Amari Cooper that the Texans have to worry about. Elliot owns a high 93 overall rating while Cooper has 91. Aside from the trio, there is also Zack Martin (97) and Tyron Smith (91) that Houston has to worry about. However, the defense will also play an important part. Though Jones and Lawrence are holding up well, more players need to help out. Lawrence’s overall rating is made up of 93 finesse, 89 power and 88 in blocking. As for Jones, he owns a 92 rating in speed, 94 in acceleration and 96 and agility.
Houston is on a four-game losing streak, the last of which came at the hands of Minnesota. Hopkins may have a high 98 overall rating but needs help. Out to provide that will be Deshuan Watson (86) and Lamar Miller (84). Their defense also needs to be on its feet against Dallas. Watts has a high overall rating but need others to get involved. That includes D.J. Reader and Justin Reid, each owning an 84 overall rating.

This game could go down the wire, hinting that it may hinge on team execution.
