The Cowboys face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Week 5 and here’s five things that Dallas must do to pull upset.

The Dallas Cowboys have lost two in a row going into this match-up with the New England Patriots. The offense has been less than stellar, the defense has been breaking late in games, and the coaches have made some serious gaffes. Looking at this game it would appear the Cowboys are on the ropes before they even enter the game.

Not so fast.

More from Dallas Cowboys

The defense looks almost fully healthy and there seems to be some drive coming out of the running backs in Dallas. If the Cowboys want to win this game they will have to do some things we haven’t seen from them much this year, and maybe throw in a few new wrinkles as well.

One thing is for sure, though; the defense will have to help more since Tony Romo is still available.

So, what exactly do the Dallas Cowboys have to do to win this game? Well, here are the five things for week five.
