Well this is a Cowboys team that would be the 5th seed in the NFC if the season ended today and currently sit in 2nd in the NFC East. Micah Parson leads one of the toughest defenses in football and on the offensive side the Dak Prescott CeeDee Lamb combo has been a force to be reckon with all year.
If you’re a Colts fan still holding out for a Christmas miracle that sees Indy make the playoffs, you would want to see a dominant performance from Jonathan Taylor. Even though Taylor is averaging just 86.5 yards in his nine game of action this season AND he’s averaging a career-low 4.6 yards per carry, the Cowboys rank near the bottom in run defense.
The offensive line and run blocking has been so bad at times that it hasn’t fully matter what Jonathan Taylor is doing because of the lack of help. Still, the path to victory so often the last few years has been Run The Damn Ball and if the Colts hope to pull of a wild upset they’ll need a big game from JT.
As for the passing game…well you’ve seen how well the Colts throw the ball. That combined with Dallas being viewed as one of the top passing defenses in the NFL makes you hope for a heavy dose of Jonathan Taylor even more.
Even with the deck stacked against Indianapolis and their playoff hopes on life support, The Dan Dakich Show still has your back with Colts coverage.
