Cowboys Host Titans (Nov. 5) In Surprisingly Crucial MNF Game: Time Start, Channel, Players To Watch
Both will need a win on Monday to position themselves in the right direction for appearances in January, as the shaky divisions of the NFC East and AFC South are still ripe for the taking. As both teams are coming off of losses and uncertain midseason stretches, Monday night may finally be the game where a revival is made by two teams with decent potential. That potential may be slightly capped, however, as these two teams have been notorious for dismal offensive showings and defensive struggles.
A bright spot for the Cowboys includes new acquisition Amari Cooper, who was returned for a first-round pick from Oakland and has yet to debut for the team. The Titans certainly have Cooper’s match, though. With Malcolm Butler, Logan Ryan and Adoree’ Jackson looming in the secondary, Cooper won’t have the easiest first go with his new team, even when considering his precise route running and blinding speed.
The Titans’ defense is simply ravenous, as the unit ranks third in the league in scoring defense and 11th in total defense. Compiled with Dallas’ quarterback Dak Prescott‘s measly 202 passing yards per game, hopes of a high-octane, electric offensive showing on primetime is unlikely.
