Lions and Cowboys will kick off at 8:30 pm. Lions are hoping to snatch this game from Cowboys.
Five things to watch in this game of Detroit Lions vs Dallas Cowboys.
1. Homeland Warriors:
As a Lion quarterback Matt. Stafford has played two games at his home state, with a comeback victory of 2011 and losing in playoffs in 2014. He seems vigorous to playing against Dallas Cowboys. His average in last 3 games was 350.3 yards against Dallas Cowboys overall.
2. Repose Guaranteed:
Cowboys has an advantage of their home field tonight, Cowboys have nothing to play tonight. Jason Calvin Garrett coach of Dallas Cowboys said that he will not give any rest to his starting players.Jerry Jones owner of Dallas Cowboys said he is willing to see his players sharp for this game. Some of the players of Cowboys are injured. So, will Dallas Cowboys give any rest to his Key players like Ezekiel Elliott, Dak Prescott and other players?
Ezekiel Elliott is on the field for long. He is a key player who leads the National Football League in attacking yards with the talented attacking line. One thing is conformed that Detroit Lions will do everything to defend Zeke.
4. Problem for Lions:
Zeke is not only the problem for Lions defence. Darius Slay and Quandre Diggs are not playing tonight, Nevin Lawso, Johnson Bademosi and Asa Jackson will be the top cornerback of Lion. Jackson has to cover Cole Beasley in the slot which is very difficult task for him. Lawson or Bademosi have to cover Dez Bryant.
5. Zone Breakers:
Lions have not performed well in recent weeks due to their wide receivers have struggled to send off press man coverage. Dallas Cowboys wins due to control of their time and pressure with move. If Lions can score early, they can end the Cowboys comfort zone. On the other hand Cowboys are a great zone team, they could augur well for Marvin Jones and Co. defense.
