NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Falcons and Cowboys are both looking to bounce back after a loss in week 1. That leaves one of these two teams to start 0-2, so this battle could end up being a critical one. To preview this game, Jeanna and I were joined by RJ Ochoa of Blogging the Boys to look at the important matchups and why this game could be a very close one.

Topics discussed include:

  • What happened in game 1 for the Cowboys under new coach Mike McCarthy 2.0
  • The injuries to the Cowboys, including Blake Jarwin and especially Leighton Vander Esch and why his injury was the worst the team could suffer right now
  • The reputation of the Cowboys offensive line and why it’s more hype than reality right now
  • Whether or not Grady Jarrett, Dante Fowler Jr. and Takk McKinley can repeat their week 1 performance
  • The terrifying Cowboys defensive front with Aldon Smith, Everson Griffen and DeMarcus Lawrence and why Jake Matthews and Kaleb McGary could be in for a long day
  • The Cowboys secondary and why Matt Ryan should lean heavy on the three headed monster of Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage
  • So much more
