If Mac Jones wants to get his first home win of his young NFL career on Sunday, he will need to beat one of the league’s hottest teams.
The New England Patriots are coming off a narrow, come-from-behind win against the Texans in Houston. Now, the Patriots will play Texas’ other -- and much better -- team.
The Dallas Cowboys come to town winners of four straight games. Dak Prescott and Co. lost a narrow NFL Kickoff game to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and have not lost since. Their win streak includes triumphs over the Los Angeles Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers and New York Giants. While the Cowboys have beaten two teams with winning records, the Patriots’ victories have come against teams with just two wins combined.
The Patriots’ defense struggled against rookie quarterback Davis Mills in Houston but were able to claw their way back thanks to some Texans miscues. If they play at a similar level against Dallas, they could be on their way to a 2-4 start with an 0-4 home record.
Will the Pats get their best win of the season on Sunday, or will they leave with another disappointing result?
