Key matchups to watch for the Cowboys in Week 3.
The Dallas Cowboys travel to MetLife Stadium this week to take on a surprisingly undefeated New York Giants team this week. This NFC East divisional matchup could end up impacting the playoff race at the end of the season, so for the Cowboys to put their best foot forward securing a victory would go a long ways in helping their case.
With that in mind, we’re going to take a look at some key matchups to watch in this Week 3 matchup.
Micah Parsons vs. Andrew Thomas/Evan Neal
Micah Parsons is a stud! He has been demoralizing just about any offensive tackle he has squared off against so far this season, and there’s no reason to believe that won’t happen once again against the New York Giants. While Andrew Thomas is currently the highest graded OT according to PFF, even he will have his hands full with No. 11 and Evan Neal even more so. It wouldn’t be all that surprising if Parsons ends up having his third consecutive multi-QB sack game in prime time on Monday Night Football.
