Von Miller is worrisome...can't let him gain confidence in this game.

I like this match-up over-all,its always tough in Denver....but as long as we win turn-overs and stop the run,making them 1 dimensional on offense....I think we can win up there in a tough one....21-17,17-14 type game.Gotta keep feeding Zeke and not have empty trips in the red zone.

Denver still has a great Defense, and we have yet to see what Lynch can do at QB. This is no pushover team, and if Dallas' Offense doesn't play better than it did against the Giants...it may be a tough one.


This may be a concern in more ways than one. Higher altitude will make passing the ball different...and if Dak doesn't get those passes down from the Giants' game...he may be throwing the ball to N.M.

Paxton Lynch is injured. trevor Semian is the QB.

the offense of Denver stinks, the defense is decent but THEY ARE VERY BEATABLE.

They did finish at 9-7 last season with that so called
"great defense"

Last year's record is a bit misleading, as those losses were to very good teams. Oakland, New England, Atlanta, KC... Two of those teams were in the Super Bowl last year, and Oakland and KC were play off teams. I wouldn't underestimate them this year...I think that would be a mistake.


Been a Dallas fan all my life...will remain a Dallas fan till I die.

Cowboys haven't beaten the Broncos since 1995.   That is the longest winless streak that the Cowboys currently have against any team in the NFL.

 

Time to end that.

I agree. We need to approach each game "one at a time" and NEVER underestimate an opponent!

 I DON'T CLAIM TO BE ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY, BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE DELUSIONAL! :lol:

 

 

3 Important things to remember:

 

 

1)Overall, we are only speculators

2))Laughter and bacon feed the soul

3)It's only a game

Feed Zeke and stop forcing it to Dez. Bam! We win.

Wow.... I'd say it's long overdue to end that streak. Odd,you'd think a stat like that would be mentioned more?

well, even though we hear good arguments to say that the broncos are an easily beatable team ... i am still concerned.

 

... the 4th best defense in the nfl is lousy huh ?

The only way we lose is if they somehow get their receivers deep against our DBs consistently.

We more than match up with them. Their defense is no joke, but neither was the Giants. I think

their QB situation will be their downfall in the end. Looking forward to the match-up !

good news is we just played a team that is very similar in NY....great defense, crappy offense....we should be ready to repeat....also, this is a road game and we all know that our team travels very well

DAL needs to have a better redzone offense next week.

MNF is just getting on for those scouting the opponent for next week. A majority of NFL analysts have the Broncos winning it in a close one. I picked the Chargers to upset the Broncos at home tonight. Hopefully it's a good game.

This really feels like the Minnesota game last year.  Offense that we should contain but dominant defense in hostile environment.  I've never played sports in high altitude, so I don't know what it feels like, but Denver is always a tough place to play no matter how good/bad they are.

 

Tom Brady has lost to Kyle Orton, Brock Osweiler, and Jake Plummer (twice) in Denver.  That says enough for me

nope... the Chargers have next to no talent on defense outside of their 2 pass rushers. Their LB corps might be worst in the NFL considering their best one was out injured tonight.

 

The Broncos' offense is bad. Their line in particular is lousy and inexperienced. The line's best player might be Leary, and I'm not even joking. The pass rush was constantly in siemen's face but the corners couldn't cover for 2 seconds and the linebackers couldn't cover nor tackle. Our pass rush should dominate.

Dak's gonna have to get rid of the ball faster and make use of play action, screens, etc... to slow down their pass rush. Our Oline is good but he's not going to have all day waiting for guys to uncover.

I might say this: we’ve always been a running team and I’m sure we will continue to be so. (We’ve been criticized for it, I might add.) But I’ve always felt that three things can happen to you whenever you throw the football, and two of them are bad. You can catch the ball, you can throw it incomplete, or have it intercepted.

Their weakness on defense is against the run. Let's see if we are going to try and take advantage of it.
