The Cowboys look to be exceedingly healthy as the Lions come to town. With Dak Prescott,
CeeDee Lamb, Dalton Schultz, and several other question marks all given the green light to play Sunday,
Cowboys Nation can find other stories to occupy themselves with before the Week 7 contest.
Like who’s out and who’s questionable for Detroit; if their dangerous running back is able to go,
it could be a real challenge for a Cowboys run defense that hasn’t exactly been legendary yet.
We’ll forecast what Cooper Rush’s next contract could look like after his head-turning stint the past month,
we’re getting an admission that Jerry Jones really did say that to Robert Kraft,
and we’re exploring the massive effect Deion Sanders is still having on Jackson State University.
For all the comparisons to the legendary defenses of Dallas’s past,
this current unit ranks just 19th in yards allowed and 16th in yards per rush. Failure to stop the run played a huge role
in the team’s two losses to Tampa Bay and Philadelphia, and they allowed Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones to combine for 160
ground yards in a win over the Giants. The Lions and Bears could provide formidable (and sneaky) tests for the Cowboys’ run defense over the next two weeks.
