Nick Coit’s Patriots Preview: Dallas Cowboys, Week 12
Nick Coit is excited for Sunday afternoon's game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
"It's America's team, everybody knows this team, how 'bout dem Cowboys. It's always fun when the Cowboys are involved," said the ABC6 Sports Director.
The Cowboys had their own mini-dynasty in the '90s with Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Dion Sanders. "The team was stacked," says Coit. "They won some Super Bowls, the had the swagger, and that's what people remember, which is why they still have so many fans."
Nick says the scariest part of the 2019 version of the Dallas Cowboy's is the diversity in their offense.
"They've got a good corps of receivers led by Amari Cooper. He'll probably be the best guy Stephan Gilmore has been called upon to cover so far this season," he said.
Even while they have one of the top 10 running backs in the NFL in Ezekial Elliot, they also have the NFL's leading passer in Dak Prescott. The Cowboys lead the NFL in passing yards per game.
"As good as they are through the air, I wonder if the Cowboys look at that game film from the Ravens game and they same, hmmm, are we better suited to do some option stuff and a little more on the ground? But they're dangerous in multiple ways, so they're going to be a fun team to watch and dangerous to this Patriots defense." --ABC 6 Sports Director Nick Coit
What about the rumors of Antonio Brown making amends with the Patriots to try to win back a spot on the team? Coit says it's not happening. New reports overnight from NFL insiders suggest that any talk of Brown returning to the team was just rumors.
NICK'S PICK: Patriots 24, Cowboys 21
