This is going to be a great matchup. I feel there's a balance between Dak's offense to Von's defense. Both are great with studs that can make plays. When it comes down to it, how is Sean Lee's defense matchup with Trevor Simeon's offense? Simeon looked good week one and ex-Cowboy Ron Leary is a big upgrade to that O-Line. The defensive line will get an early test to determine whether or not they are in fact the real deal. The secondary has a test too. DT and Emmanuel Sanders are still good receivers and can cause havoc for opposing defenses. I understand the Cowboys locked down Sterling Sheppard and Brandon Marshall, however the pass rush against the Giants' O-Line was great. This Broncos offense is good, however, the Cowboys defense have one major key going for them. It's whether or not Simeon is the real deal. If they can't get to him early on in the game, they could really get into his head and force him to make bad decisions. I'm not too worried about the run game considering our linebackers are very smart and get to the ball fast. CJ Anderson is probably gonna have 86 yards on the ground and Jamaal Charles will add some more.
I think Dak might throw his first interception this year, however, with that said, he's going to throw his first TD to #88 this year. I believe Dez will have a phenomenal play and catch Talib sleeping on a play and Dak is going to expose him. I think the receiver with the best stats will be Brice Butler. Defenses never really take him seriously and why would they? He's good but doesn't seem like a threat when Dez and Beasley are on the filed. They mix rather cover the speedy Terrance Williams than the.... tall I guess Brice Butler? The defense will hardly cover Butler and will have a nice game. If you need receivers for fantasy, I'd pick him up for a flex maybe. Moving on and talking about Zeke, I believe he's going to have an average game. Over 100 yards rushing and about 30 multipurpose yards. I think Zeke may have his first TD of the season this Sunday. I do however think Zeke exposes Miller on one play.
The Dallas Cowboys have an outstanding offensive line facing a strong Broncos defensive line. However, I predict Dallas will win this matchup. I think Collins has a really tough challenge going against Miller (at least that's what side Miller will probably line up on). Collins had a good challenge week 1 going against JPP. He won some and lost some but when he won, he dominated. Look for Miller getting maybe 2 sacks this Sunday. My prediction for this game will be 17-14 Dallas.
