Last time out for the New England Patriots
The Patriots enter Sunday’s game with a 2-3 record after defeating the Houston Texans 25-22 last weekend. New England trailed 22-9 in the second half but scored 16 unanswered points to rally for the victory.
Rookie quarterback Mac Jones led the Pats down field in the final moments of the fourth quarter, setting up a Nick Folk field goal as time expired. Jones completed 23 of 30 passes on the day, setting up his team for the win.
Their game Sunday against the Cowboys will likely be much more difficult as Dallas’ defense has proven to pressure the opponents quarterback and New England’s defense on the run has been a liability that Dallas will surely try to expose.
Last time out for the Dallas Cowboys
Dec. 12, 1996: That’s the last time the Cowboys defeated the New England Patriots. Just to put that into perspective. Bill Clinton was serving in his first time as president and Troy Aikman was taking snaps instead of being in the broadcast booth.
So it’s been awhile.
This season, the Cowboys are averaging an NFC-high 34 points per game. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are proving to be a lethal offensive duo, proven in their win over the New York Giants last weekend. What started out as a struggle would end up in another run away win for the Cowboys and Sunday should be the same if the team can take care of business accordingly.
