Cowboys-Patriots Preview: New England in a Rout

Mark ScacewaterAnalyst IOctober 11, 2007

IconBefore Wade Phillips took over the Cowboys, my last memory of him was as head coach of the Bills.

In Buffalo, Phillips tried and failed to manage a quarterback controversy between Rob Johnson and Doug Flutie—and lost his job when his team got bounced from the playoffs.

Fast-forward to this Sunday, when we have a great matchup of two undefeated teams.

Or do we?

When you manage to win despite your QB throwing five picks and fumbling twice, it means you have great team resolve, right?

That, or your opponent just sucks.

I want to make this as clear as possible for every reader out there:

The New England Patriots will destroy the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Tom Brady, Randy Moss, Richard Seymour, Rodney Harrison, Junior Seau, Adalius Thomas, Asante Samuel, and Donté Stallworth—it's just unfair.

The Patriots are too good. No team stands a chance against them.

This is a prove-something game, which means New England will come out and play hard on every down. They'll score early and often, and win going away.

I just needed to let you know that.

Final Score: New England 48, Dallas 14
