"(We) know what we're getting into, and they know what they're getting into.

The Falcons throttled the Cowboys at home over the weekend, sacking them eight times during their 27-7 win. And most importantly it's a big game because it's the next one that we play.

Adrian Clayborn recorded six sacks against the Cowboys on Sunday, just the fourth such game in the history of the NFL. Second to that, it's the Eagles. If the Cowboys are to make a serious run at the division, a win this Sunday would be a good place to start.

Dak added: "I do".

On Tuesday Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan that "Tyron has a better chance to play than Sean" After reading the news above Cowboys fans may not think this is all that great news. This one it holds a lot of importance in it.

The dominant performance brought his season total from two sacks to eight, earning him a $750,000 performance bonus. You've got to shorten that gap and they're a couple of games up on us.

Victory won't come easy for a Dallas team decimated by injury and without suspended running back Ezekiel Elliott. To make matters worse, linebacker Sean Lee is expected to miss some time with a hamstring injury.

Yesterday NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted that it would be unlikely for Lee to play the next several games. The Cowboys are hopeful that Smith can practice this week and will return in a big Sunday Night matchup against the Eagles.

As I alluded to earlier, Hitchens is going to be an even more important piece to this defense for the rest of the season.
