The Dallas Cowboys are ranked 16th in the league in pass defense, allowing roughly 230 yards per game through the air. However, Bills Coach Chan Gailey knows how to exploit defenses with his spread offense, often creating mismatches for opposing secondaries. Gailey's style of offense often forces defenses into their nickel and dime packages, which in turn helps the running game.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has been a bright spot in the Bills passing game, completing 65.4 percent of his passes for 1,930 yards, throwing 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions. The Bills spread the ball around, which will keep the Cowboys defense on its toes, as Fitz has completed a pass to nine different receivers this year.
Stevie Johnson is the Bills' leading receiver, having caught 42 passes for 523 yards and four touchdowns. Last week against the Jets, he gained 83 yards on three receptions against Darrelle Revis, the most yardage he has allowed to a receiver in three years.
Terrence Newman is decent in his coverage, but Johnson should be able to expose him deep at least once or twice. Newman has deflected just one pass on the year and has two interceptions.
David Nelson is another receiver the Cowboys must keep an eye on at all times, as the second-year player has been a threat in the red zone and has caught 35 passes for 402 yards and three scores. Donald Jones, who returns to the lineup after suffering a high ankle sprain, provides the deep threat the Bills need to open up the underneath passes to Stevie and Nelson.
Bills tight end Scott Chandler is another potential threat that will require the Cowboys safeties to stay honest in their coverage. While he has only caught 18 passes, six of them have been for scores. Gerald Sensabaugh has two interceptions and three pass deflections on the year, but if he gets caught cheating up to the line of scrimmage, don't be surprised to see Chandler spiking the ball in the end zone.
