The New England Patriots return to Gillette Stadium to host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Locked On: Patriots podcast host Mike D’Abate gives a preview of the Week 6 game.
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Two of the NFL’s biggest brands and most successful organizations will take to the field at Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon in the Week 6 game between the New England Patriots and the Dallas Cowboys.
America’s Team is on a 4-1 start after the Cowboys faced the New York Giants last week. The 2-3 Patriots needed a second half comeback to leave Houston in Week 5 for the team’s second win of the season.
New England has a chance to improve their record to 3-3 with a win over one of the top teams in the NFL. Mac Jones and the offensive will seek to match Dak Prescott and his army on Sunday afternoon.
Locked On: Patriots podcast host Mike D’Abate gives a preview of the game ahead of Sunday’s game. Safety of the ball continues to be an issue for this team, but if the Patriots running backs hold the ball and Mac Jones shoots enough depth into the field, D’Abate thinks New England can come away with a big Victoire.
Weeks 6 and 12: Dallas and Tennessee
The game against Brady will get all the attention, but another good offensive team will come to town a few weeks later when the Cowboys face the Patriots on October 17. If Thursday’s game showed anything to the NFL, it’s that Dallas’ offense will be. top units in the league and could make this game for New England one of the circles in the first half of the season.
The Titans arrive in Gillette on November 28 and will bring another impressive collection of offensive weapons. Running back Derrick Henry and wide receivers Julio Jones and AJ Brown will give quarterback Ryan Tannehill enough weapons to return to the playoffs and give the Patriots defense all they can handle this week. 12.
Week 10 vs. Cleveland: The hype around the Browns has been a constant trend this preseason. Quarterback Baker Mayfield and wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. give a lot to the defensive coordinators to plan the game if they’re in their game. The scenario for this Browns team could be defensive play, led by the Defensive Player of the Year nominee Myles Garret. It’ll be another test for the Patriots mid-season.
Weeks 13 and 16 against Buffalo
The Buffalo Bills are the betting favorites to win the AFC East. The team led by Josh Allen reached the AFC championship game last season and are expected to do so again, if not qualify for the Super Bowl. Because of this, beating Buffalo at least once would give New England a huge boost in their goal of reclaiming the divisional throne or qualifying for the playoffs. Both teams will have ample time to prepare for their first meeting on Monday, December 6. New England will enter their week off after the game and see the Bills at Foxborough on Boxing Day.
The Patriots’ Achilles heel in recent memory played on the road against the Dolphins. With a division race set to be tighter than in previous years between Miami, New England and Buffalo, this season’s final could give the Patriots a playoff berth with a win or even clinch the division. Potentially.
