Week 5 at Cowboys

This is easily the Patriots’ toughest game of 2015. The Cowboys may not be the best in the NFC, but they are certainly up there, and they will give the reigning champs all they can handle come October. DeMarco Murray is gone, but the best offensive line is still there protecting the most underrated quarterback in the league, and because of that, this game is going to come down to the wire.

In addition to the best offensive line, and one of the best signal callers, Dallas has the second most talented playmaker in the league in Dez Bryant. Without Darrelle Revis, or Brandon Browner, New England will struggle to contain Bryant in 1-on-1 situations.

Ultimately I’m giving the edge to the Patriots because I trust their defense to make one more stop than Dallas’ defense. This is going to be a fun, entertaining offensive shootout, but whichever defense makes a play at the end will win. Devin McCourty snags a pick to end the game in the end zone.

Score: Pats 34-30
