The Dallas Cowboys are 2-0 but now have to deal with a serious injury bug. Brandon Weeden is completing 100 percent of his passes for 73 yards, one touchdown and zero interceptions. Weeden will take over as starter with Tony Romo out with a broken collarbone. Terrance Williams and Jason Witten have combined for more than 260 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Lance Dunbar has 11 receptions. The Dallas Cowboys ground game is averaging 94.5 yards per contest, and Joseph Randle leads the way with 116 yards on 34 carries. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 18 points and 257.5 yards per game. Sean Lee leads the Cowboys with 23 tackles, J.J. Wilcox has an interception and Tyler Patmon has two pass deflections. Barry Church, James Hanna and Ronald Leary are questionable with injuries.
I love the Cowboys roster, but not without Dez Bryant AND Tony Romo. You're asking a whole lot of Weeden to keep up with the Falcons and their offense that is clicking right now. While the game is in Dallas, the Cowboys are just way too banged up to hang in this game against a Falcons squad that is oozing with confidence at the moment.
ATL has to be the pick here.
