The Dallas Cowboys come to town on Sunday with a great deal of talent on both sides of the ball. That has been the case for the Cowboys more often than not in recent years, but one thing that’s different this time around is Dak Prescott.
Dallas used to try to establish the run and keep the pressure off their quarterback. Not so this season where Prescott stands as the league’s leading passer.
One guy who has taken notice is Bill Belichick, who told the Boston Globe that he’s “super impressed” with Prescott thus far.
Growing up a Niners fan, Tom Brady joked to ESPN.com that he’s hated the Cowboys basically “since coming out of the womb.” Speaking of Brady, the quarterback moved up his scheduled press conference from Friday to Wednesday and struck a more upbeat tone than he displayed after the Eagles game.
The Boston Herald looks at some ways the Patriots can jumpstart their offense. The Providence Journal has Brady expressing some optimism for improvement. The Athletic wonders if Isaiah Wynn’s return is enough to solidify the offensive line.
NBC Sports Boston explains why Belichick quoted Dwight Eisenhower during his press conference.
Injuries are becoming a problem among the receiving corps. Meanwhile Jake Bailey earned AFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.
Boston Sports Journal says Kyle Van Noy has been the Patriots most valuable defender.
ESPN.com has Michael Bennett explaining that facing the Patriots, or anyone else in the NFL, is never personal.
The Boston Globe is looking ahead to potential Super Bowl matchups for the Patriots.
