So, there are the five things the Cowboys must do if they are to win this game and stay on top of the NFC East.

While it seems pretty cut and dry, doing all of this against the Patriots is a lot harder than it seems. Consistency and low penalties will be key if the Cowboys are to emerge victorious. The coaches hopefully will have made some adjustments this week and can shock the world and beat the Patriots. If they can win this game, stay healthy, and move on to the bye week, things could be looking up.

As more and more players start coming back from injuries, the Cowboys could be a very scary team later in the season. It takes one game at a time and the Cowboys can’t be looking any further than this game.

So for the song of the week I think it is fitting that we do something for all of the people coming back to the defense this week. The song of the week is: Neowx – Release The Kraken (a little dubstep/techno for you all)
