How will the second half play out? How these two teams approach this contest will likely dictate how they will approach for the rest of the season.
The Tennessee Titans have been trending in the wrong direction lately. If they do so, they will make Dallas one-dimensional.
Dak Prescott made a decision to give the ball right back to the Titans when he threw an interception in the end zone looking to get Cooper his second touchdown on the night. The coaching staff seems as if they are not going to open up the playbook for the offense.
The week nine slate concludes with the Dallas Cowboys (3-4) facing off against the Tennessee Titans (3-4). Coming off of a bi-week with a new offensive threat in Amari Cooper, Dallas were obvious favorites.
Ronaldo bemoans Juve's Champions League 'present' to Manchester United
The 20-year-old had been used primarily as a substitute this season but could spearhead the United attack if necessary. If they can show the patience they did against Juventus then it could be a good day for his team.
"I feel like I've seen this before".
"I think we realize we have eight games to go, we've got a long way to go in this season", Jones said. While Zeke will look to restart his engine and get going once again on the ground, his counterpart in Tennessee will continue to struggle. Lewis is the Titans receiving back so I would expect him to handle a lot of check downs on Monday.
Now the Cowboys are looking at a second straight year of missing the playoffs since the remarkable rookie seasons for Prescott and Elliott, who powered Dallas to an NFC-best 13 wins before a divisional round loss to Green Bay. The loss of Travis Frederick can not be understated however there are still some Pro Bowl players not living up to the hype.
The Cowboys felt energized by the trade with the Oakland Raiders for Cooper as well as the change from Paul Alexander to Marc Colombo at offensive line coach.
It is unknown how this will affect the production in this offense but hopefully, it is a step in the right direction. After that, it became a battle of who owns the star, and it quickly turned into an actual physical altercation on the field as former Cowboys safety George Teague laid a hit on Owens after he felt like Owens' was disrespecting Dallas. With some of the focus on Cooper, I would not be surprised if Cole Beasley or one of the handful of Cowboy tight ends grabs a touchdown tonight.
