Miami Dolphins – Dallas Cowboys Match Prediction | 22-09-2019 13:00

However, he would quickly turn heads with his elite level of play in only his first year on the field. He was so good that he earned Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors and was one of the leaders of the Cowboys top 7 ranked defense. When the Dallas Cowboys drafted Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft it wasn't received with open arms from the fan base. With expectations through the roof in 2019, Vander Esch is off to another fast start.

Although new coach Brian Flores has deep Patriot ties, it will be little to no use as the Patriots are too talented. Coaching and talent will take over as Tom Brady and company take their first of two from the Dolphins on the season. The drafting of WR NKeal Harry and the signing of free agent Ben Watson will be enough to cover the production lost from the retirement of TE Rob Gronkowsi.

The team struggled running the ball (30th in the league in yards rushing) and Dalvin Cooks inability to stay healthy hurts, but the team added some fresh young legs in the draft with Boise States Alexander Mattison. Mike Zimmers defense played well, but the offense struggled despite having one of the best wide receiver tandems in the league in Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. The Vikings are strapped for cap space as they have a lot of money spread out to several different players, including paying a premium price for quarterback Kirk Cousins.


Martin and his linemates will have their hands full dealing with Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Zack Martins play early in the year didnt live up to the standard that he set in his All-Pro rookie season, but he seems to have settled in over the last few weeks as the offensive line has played better as a whole.

The wild card factor for Haskins lowers the confidence level a tad, but the Cowboys still have a reasonable shot at sweeping them this year. Something tells me that wont be the case this season. The Redskins have a sneaky way of giving the Cowboys trouble, even when theyre outmatched. Win confidence: 80% (x 2 games) = 1.6 wins. Washington is the Cowboys Week 17 opponent this year and over the last three seasons, this has been a meaningless game for them.

The team didnt add much in terms of draft picks as past trades left them short on draft capital, but Chicago is still growing from previous pieces added as players like Mitchell Trubisky and Khalil Mack continue to make their impact felt. The Bears didnt do much to upgrade the team, but they didnt lose much either. The loss of safety Adrian Amos may sting a little as he had a great season last year.

Cap space and lack of draft capital has handcuffed the team in making any meaningful moves this offseason. And what money they did spend in free agency, they used on tight end Jared Cook, which gives Drew Brees another weapon for his offense. The good news for the Cowboys is that New Orleans didnt do much to improve their team. The bad news is - they were already a pretty good team and didnt take any significant hits to their roster.

While they could show improvement this season, this team still has a lot of holes. The success of the 2019 Jets relies on the development of second-year quarterback Sam Darnold. The Jets opened up their pocketbook this offseason by adding LeVeon Bell and C.J. 3 overall pick on the top interior defensive linemen certainly doesnt hurt either. And spending the no. Mosley to the squad.

Lets take a look at the schedule. Trading veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titansand not moving up to draft a quarterback in the first round, should give you an idea of what this season will look like. The Miami Dolphins are in flux as the organization seems to be in full rebuild mode following a (7-9) 2018 campaign. Little to no offensive firepower was gained in the offseason, let alone the questionable signing of journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick. On defensethe Dolphins hope to improve under new Head Coach Brian Flores, but will struggle with key departures. In recent news, Josh Rosen was acquired via trade with the Arizona Cardinals as a possible alternative QB option for the upcoming season. Trading DE Robert Quinn in the offseason as well asother questionable movesshow that there is a long term plan in place, not likely producing a winner anytime soon.

In 2019, this game will be played in possibly the loudest stadium in the NFL. The Dallas defense was clicking on all cylinders and held the Saints to an astounding 10 points. The Cowboys always play the Saints tough, especially in New Orleans, but I do not see this one going Dallas way. One of the high points of 2018 is when the Dallas defense shut down the high flying Saints offense in Week 13 on Thursday Night Football.

A lot of teams have plenty of tough games, and the Cowboys first-place schedule isnt going to hold them back. A 10-6 record has been good enough to get into the NFC players in each of the last four seasons, and it shouldnt be any different this year. While winning the division might be a challenging task with a team as good as the Eagles in the mix, a trip to the playoffs looks favorable.

Defense generally travels on the road and they'll definitely need a solid effort on that side of the ball to get their second division win in two weeks. Vander Esch hasn't missed a beat coming off his spectacular rookie campaign and it looks like another Pro Bowl/All-Pro season is on the horizon. This Sunday the Cowboys face bitter division rival the Washington Redskins on the road.
