Gameplan for the Cowboys

Recommended Posts

I give the edge to Dallas on overall talent. 

 

Buffalo gets the edge in coaching and scheme.  I suspect that Garrett will do some dumb things as a reaction to the criticism from the NE game and Buffalo will take advantage.

 

It will be a close game but Buffalo plays as a team, Dallas more as a collection of individuals.  Edge Buffalo with a Q4 drive by Allen FTW.

First and foremost, we can't "beat ourselves". Turnovers, penalties, clock management and Special Teams cannot be a problem. We have to play a "clean" game. After that, we have to take the mindset of "we're a tougher team". We need to be the more physical team on both sides of the ball. Let Zeke know "it ain't happening today". Pound that depleted D-line and LB corp. of theirs. Essentially see this game as a fight and kick their :censored: ass.

 

Let's go Bills!!!!

The winner between the Cowboys running game and the Bills run defense will win this game.

So is Dallas.

Whitten has been average, at best.

Exactly. He resembles more of an eligible lineman than a TE this year.

Hasn't Denver lost a bunch of close games? When are the opposing offenses pulling back?

 

Just checked... 4 of their 7 losses before last weekend were by less than a TD. Denver has been playing teams tough - because of a very good defense. 

 

Dallas has lost 4 close games but keep in mind - Bills are only a few plays from being 10-1 as well.   This should be a really good game.

I agree, however these things have been an issue all year long, pretty much.

Number 1 priority if I'm head coach, put 9 in the box every single play to stop Zeke. Let Dak beat you. Tre can take away Cooper but I'm still 100% focusing on Zeke. If we contain Zeke then I think we win

which is why I don’t think Bills have coaching advantage despite Garrett being on the hot seat. The key as always is Josh Allen, but I think it’s going to have to have 3 TD game with both 200 yards passing and running. If the Bills can have like 3 or 4 long scoring drives it will go a long way in limiting Zeke imo.

Dallas normally has a great offensive line, but they're a bit beat up right now.  Buffalo's defensive line needs to get their assignments right and play with discipline.  Frazier and McDermott need to continue to dial up some creative blitzes.  Maybe Buffalo can put Tre White on Cooper, but they don't want to put Levi Wallace on anybody one on one, especially a big strong WR.

 

The Bills have been improving on offense the last couple games.  Dallas has dominant defensive ends, so I expect Buffalo is going to want to get the ball out of Josh Allen's hands as quickly as possible.  Not that they won't take any deep shots, but they'll want to be careful about picking their opportunities.  I could see Cole Beasley getting targeted a lot.  Dallas has a defensive tackle, Antwuan  Woods,  who is nicked up and might be out.  The are also likely without the services of star weak side linebacker, Van der Esch.  I think the Bills will test the interior of the Dallas line in the run game as it may be a (slightly) weak link in the defense.  I wouldn't be surprised to see some running out of a two TE formation, and the tight ends may have a bigger role in the passing game as well.

If Andre Roberts can give us decent starting field position, Haushka continues to kick well and Bojo can be consistent, those things certainly won't hurt.

Good point of emphasis @Gugny

 

There are few teams with worse STs - we hold advantage in PR, KR  and place kicking game - but the Cowboys manage to be this.  https://www.footballoutsiders.com/stats/teamst/2019

 

Time # 18 takes a Punt or Kickoff to the house.  In Jerruh's House to boot!

The Bills on defense need to force the Cowboys offense to beat them with Dak's arm. The Bills need to hope that Tre can shut down Cooper one on one and force the rest of the Cowboys passing offense to beat them. On offense the team needs to avoid turnovers at all costs even if it means being a bit more conservative. I think the deciding factor will be if the Bills can shut down Zeke and make a big play or two on special teams. The Cowboys are pretty solid on both sides of the ball but they are below average on special teams. If they can get some turnovers and break some plays they have a good shot to win.

He sure seems to be getting closer to just that. Couple weeks in a row now hes just been brought down by a shoestring tackle with no one in front but the endzone.

Really? I see the Bills either winning, or losing and not covering the spread.

Ya know what's funny? I think a lot of the Cowboys fans feel like WE'RE a dangerous match-up for THEM! No, really!

They have struggled to stop the run at times, and they're going to be without their starting defensive tackle and without Leighton Vander Esch. They've also struggled to contain mobile quarterbacks. As such, the suddenly potent Buffalo run game and the legs of Josh Allen have some of them worried.
 

Guess we'll see who was right to worry soon enough.

Bullcrap.  They have things we have to be concerned with, sure.  And the Cowboys don't?  They have to play against a top ranked defense, they have to deal with a team that just rang up over 200 yards on the ground.

 

Why do Bills fans insist on being so negative and pessimistic?

I got a bad feeling bout this one.

They're the better team on paper but have under achieved and have been badly out coached. Bills have feasted on weaker teams like they're supposed to.

I'd feel better about this game if they were 2 or 3 games up in their division but the NFCE is so bad this year that a 8-8 record may win it. 

They need this game bad!! The Bills are 2 games up on the WC playing with house money right now. They've really had no sense of urgency and have not dealt with a "must win" all season.

 

This would really be a nice statement game on national TV if they can pull it off. Daboll needs to call a smart, aggressive game and not let up until the final second. Keep the up tempo pace, utilize Sauce and Motor early and often and play "FEARLESS"!!

 

As has been the case all season, stop the run (Zeke will be a handful)... Win the game.

This is simply a game in which we're playing a better team.  I don't think they're "a lot," better, however, so I think it will boil down to minimizing mistakes on our end (especially drive-killing penalties and drops) and capitalizing on mistakes that they make.

 

If Andre Roberts can give us decent starting field position, Haushka continues to kick well and Bojo can be consistent, those things certainly won't hurt.

 

What I DON'T want to see is Daboll outcoaching himself.  I don't want to see cute college-level trickery.  I don't want to see QB-keepers on any downs in which we need more than two yards.

 

We will likely see Duke on the field again and I hope they play to his strength.  We know he's not a deep threat, per se, but he does have good hands and is a big target.  Take advantage of those things.

 

We cannot fall behind too much, too early.  We need to be able to run the ball like we did last week.  Daboll did a nice job of mixing it up with Gore and Singletary.  I'd love to see a few sustained drives during which we pound their defense for 5-6 minutes.

 

Solid fundamental football will win this game.  I hope they play their most disciplined game.  If they do, they'll win.


Dallas has among the worst special teams in the NFL.  I would love to see Andre Roberts finally take one (or two) to the house.  He’s been close a bunch of times so far.  
 

I would agree that ball control and solis fundamentals are important.  I’d also like to see the defense find a way to take the ball away a few times and give the offense a shortened field.  I read that the defense is one of the best in 3 and outs but one of the worst in terms of total turnovers.

The Cowboys are like us. They beat the bad teams and lose to the good teams. It will be really interesting to see who comes out on top.

 

They have the advantage on offense, us on defense. They're at home. I give the edge to the Cowboys, but either team could win.

And they throw for over 300 yards a game and score points......  

 

Yes the Bills defense is better......

Their OC has had a heck of a season.  He has got this team averaging 26.5 points per game.

Got to keep Ezekiel  Elliott under 100 yards to win this game. Thats my game plan.

 

If you want more, you need to send  me large wads of cash

There’s a little voice in my head saying you’ll need the cash for:

a.  a high powered rifle

b.  lots of ammunition 

c.  lawyers’ fees
