I would like to preface this with saying that the Cowboys are a good team, and they will be prepared and will play a good game against the Patriots this week. That being said, I still thing the Patriots will win. Here's 10 reasons why: 1. Randy Moss. As it has been said on this board, Moss has a monster game every time he plays the Cowboys. 2. MNF. I don't know if there are any actual statistics to back this up or not, but it seems like a shorter week to recoup and game plan puts the Cowboys at a disadvantage. I have read from this board that Brady himself has said this about SNF, not to mention MNF. Besides, who wants to give Belichick a 1 day handicap? 3. The Cowboys' most recent win was emotional, gutsy, ugly win. Psychologically speaking, this will affect the Cowboys. After the win the Cowboys pulled out against the Bills, you know they will be reflecting on last week a little more than normal. This will have an effect. 4. The Patriots do not (usually) lose two games in a row. I know there is a W on the ledger, but I would be willing to bet the Browns game counted as a loss in the NE locker room. Everyone on Earth could tell they had a down game. They were 3/12 or 2/13 or something horrid on first down. Brady missed tons of throws. Last week counts as a loss. When was the last time the Pats lost two in a row? 5. The Pats bring it in big games. This is as big a game this young season has seen. A matchup of unbeatens. We find out who is for real. Under Belichick, the Pats have always brought their "A" game in big games. Sometimes it is not enough (Pats v Colts last year) but the Pats did play their best game of the season. 6. Tony Romo. He is a good, young QB with lots of upside. He will come prepared for this game. However, a young QB getting their first taste of Belichick usually fares poorly. Romo will come prepared to play, do not doubt that. This will, after the fact, be a positive experience Romo can learn from. Expect him to throw interceptions. 7. Emotions. This Cowboys team will come out roaring, and the Patriots will match their intensity. Where the Cowboys will fall short is with veterans who have "been there." Brady, Harrison, and Bruschi (among others) will keep this team from playing with too much emotion. 8. The Patriots are the better team. The Pats have better players, better coaches, and better "reconissance." This is not to say the Cowboys aren't a quality team, because they are. I'll say it. The Cowboys are a quality team. However, I cannot think of one unit as a whole where I would rather have the Cowboys unit. Linebackers, Defensive Backfield, QB, RBs, WRs, and the list goes on. Ok, the Cowboys have the edge in punting. 9. Tom Brady has a pretty bad game last week and still threw 3 touchdowns. Tom Brady does not have back to back bad games. Although, he still hasn't had his 4 INT game. Romo's was last week. 10. I'm a homer, and I know they will win. Therefore it must be true.
