Week 4 vs. NO
Date published: Sept. 30, 2019
New Orleans defense was the story in this one: held Zeke to only 1.9 yards, and the DAL offense lost the turnover and third-down battle.
NO's front five were outstanding: Malcolm Brown (big run-stuffing addition), Cam Jordan, Marcus Davenport, AJ Klein, Demario Davis.
NO's plan: Stack the secondary and make the Dallas defense march the ball down the field slowly. However, they were also able to control the running game with their front five, so the DAL offense struggled mightily. Will this be a blueprint for other teams going forward?
DAL defense was good, but couldn't get the ball back when it mattered - struggled on third down and couldn't get a takeaway.
