Dallas Cowboys (5-3) at Atlanta Falcons (4-4)

By the Numbers stats preview: Falcons vs. Cowboys - Kevin Knight
Dallas has once again been one of the better offenses in the league in 2017, although there’s no telling how they’ll look with star RB Ezekiel Elliott on the sideline. The Cowboys are 4th in scoring, 7th in total yards, and 6th in yards per play. Through the air, the team is 17th in yards, T-19th in yards per attempt, and T-5th in passing TDs. Dallas has been among the league’s best teams at running the ball, as they’re 2nd in yards, T-1st in yards per attempt, and 1st in rushing TDs. The Cowboys have also been excellent on third down (40%, 4th) and very good at limiting turnovers (+3, T-10th).
