“We’ve been fortunate to have a very successful season, play some efficient football,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “Everyone else is going to concern themselves with (the unbeaten record). We’ve got to make sure we’re preparing for the next game”.
The Falcons smashed the Cowboys division rivals, the Eagles, last week. “We like to have a lot of fun,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said. “We have a very mature group. We have a bunch of guys who are mentors. We’re good at focusing on the task at hand. We’re on point when we kick off and guys have done a good job focusing all season”.
Atlanta knows they need to deliver on offense, but quarterback Matt Ryan and his receivers will face the 3rd best passing in the league.
“We need to win now,” Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “That’s what we’re going to do. I know the record is not what we want it to be, but the ball is bouncing strange way. When that thing starts evening out, we’re going to be great, and we’re going to keep playing.
“We’ve got to win this week, and we know it, and we’re going to”.
The Cowboys are 5-2 SU in its last 7 games when playing the Falcons, and the total has gone UNDER in 4 of Atlanta’s last 6 games when playing at home against Dallas.
