It must be said that the Cowboys are led by rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot. Prescott has impressed however the Cowboys are leaning on their running back to win games.
The Ravens offense has been lacking big plays all season long. The offense exploded against the Browns. The Ravens saw a healthy balance on the run and pass last week. Baltimore needs to continue this.
The Ravens took out Antonio Brown against the Steelers by using multiple defenders to defend him. The Ravens must use a similar strategy against Dez Bryant.
The Cowboys have the third ranked rushing defense however they have the 21st pass defense. The Ravens cannot ignore the rushing attack but there will be more chances in the passing game.
