Dallas is in trouble. Tyron Smith, Sean Lee and Ezekiel Elliott will all miss tonight’s game. With Smith out last week, the Falcons sacked Dak Prescott eight times and the Eagles’ pass rush is better than Atlanta’s. Opponents are also able to run the ball against the Cowboys when Lee doesn’t play and Elliott is arguably the team’s best overall player. Bad spot for the Cowboys.
