The Dallas Cowboys will play the Cleveland Browns this Sunday at 1 PM ET at Cowboys Stadium. Dallas enters the game with a 4-5 record while the Browns come to town with just a 2-7 mark. The Cowboys are in desperate need of a win and are playing a team they should beat. A loss could all but end their season as they try to stay afloat in the NFC East and are in the hunt for a playoff spot. They still have plenty of work to do if they plan on making that happen, but a win Sunday could help propel them further.
Dallas will have to defeat a Browns team that, although has lost most of their games, stays in contest and has proved to be a play away from several victories. Cleveland is also coming of their Bye week and should be healthy and refreshed after a much needed break. Rookie running back sensation Trent Richardson could prove to be a big factor in the game as his ribs should be near 100 percent healthy. Cleveland will have to contend with an old friend Sunday, however, in the form of Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Ryan had previously coached the Browns defense before leaving for Dallas two seasons ago.
Dallas comes into the game after a 38-23 win against the Eagles in Philadelphia last week. The Cowboys are still underperforming due to everyone’s always inflated expectations for the team. They may have done just enough so far to give themselves a chance down the stretch however.
