The Dallas Cowboys will come head to head with the Atlanta Falcons in the Sunday Night Football game of Week 9. The Cowboys are struggling following their last gasp defeat to the New York Giants last week, where as the Falcons are flying high with a perfect season until now. The game is scheduled to start at 8.20 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream via the link below.
The Atlanta Falcons are the only team remaining with a perfect record so far this season and come into this clash with a record of 7-0. The Falcons do not appear to have any serious challengers in the NFC South and it can pretty much be said they will win the divisional title this year. No other team in the NFC South have a positive win-to-loss ratio, with Tampa Bay in second place with a record of 3-4, followed by New Orlean and Carolina with records of 2-5 and 1-6 respectively.
This clash is however a huge match for the Dallas Cowboys, who come into this match up having lost three of their past four games. That said most of their losses have been by the smallest margins, such as their loss to the Giants last week. In that match they appeared to have snatched the win with a touchdown with just seconds on the clock. However, that touchdown was overturned when a replay showed Dez Bryant's hand had touched out of bounds as he landed.
If the Cowboys cannot put together a few wins and halt these heartbreaking losses the confidence of the team will drop dramatically and they may leave themselves with too much to do to make a run for the postseason.
On the flip side if they can gain the win against the only unbeaten side remaining in the NFL today then it will be a major confidence boost which could carry them on to a successful second half of the season.
