The Broncos bring their red-hot offense into Arlington on Sunday and look to keep their record blemish-free. The Cowboys on the other hand let a road win slip away and are left wondering who exactly they are. I expect both offenses to have a big game and I expect it to be a closely contested match-up. Tony Romo has beaten Peyton before and he has to believe he can do it again.
Whichever defense makes a play or two in this game is going to be the difference. It will be interesting to see what Kiffin throws at Peyton. You might see some more blitzing from Dallas than in previous weeks. If Manning is given time to pick Dallas apart then it will be a long day. The quick throws to Wes Welker might be impossible to stop for Dallas.
I expect Dallas to try and milk the clock with the run game and then take some shots down the field. If they can hit some big plays down the field it will greatly increase their chances of staying in this game, it will also make me like them more!
Prediction: Broncos 35 Cowboys 32

The Cowboys attempt to shock the world when they go head to head against Peyton Manning and the undefeated Broncos. I usually dig into the stats to help my prediction but its pretty simple. Every stat in the world says the Cowboys are going to get run out of AT&T stadium. For some reason, I just don’t think they will get blown away. I think it will be competitive. maybe even close.
You ever get that feeling, that maybe, just maybe….ah…never mind, its crazy.
