Headlined by Andy Reid vs. Jason Garrett and Patrick Mahomes vs. Dak Prescott, this Tremendous Bowl matchup would symbolize the very best of the sport’s new faculty and old skool, offense and protection.

After projecting how Tremendous Bowl 54 will play out, beneath we clarify why we’re so down with Dallas.
NFL predictions 2019: Tremendous Bowl 54
The sport has prompt basic written throughout it. Dallas will win due to slightly extra protection mixed with an offense that can speak in confidence to grow to be able to outscoring Kansas Metropolis.
Prescott and Mahomes will commerce their share of jaw-dropping moments, and the end result will comes right down to which workforce is healthier outfitted to regulate the motion within the fourth quarter. The Cowboys, with their offensive line and dedication to the run, are that workforce. They are going to grind away the clock to maintain Mahomes away from one harmful additional possession.
The Cowboys’ protection strengths at linebacker and within the secondary will restrict the big-play injury, and the Chiefs’ few points within the again seven will value them late within the sport. Prescott will put within the MVP efficiency he wants with Mahomes falling quick in a superb shedding effort.
Why the Cowboys, why now?
Primarily based on present Tremendous Bowl 54 odds, Kansas Metropolis (8-1) isn’t any shock to get there, proper behind repeat favourite New England (7-1). Dallas, nevertheless, is a relative lengthy shot, listed behind 10 different groups at 22-1. We’ll take that wager.
The Cowboys have been knocking on this door for some time. For all the warmth Jerry Jones will get in his twin position as proprietor and basic supervisor, he steadily has assembled one of many league’s most proficient rosters. That offers Dallas a excessive ground, and the workforce’s present personnel requires the ceiling.
Offensively, the elite, seasoned blocking and the big-play “triplets” of Prescott, working again Ezekiel Elliott and extensive receiver Amari Cooper are acquainted traits of Jones’ greatest Dallas groups. Garrett has been a key hyperlink to the times of Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin. He bridged lots of these emotions to 2014, when the Cowboys appeared able to go the gap with Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant; then once more to some extent in 2016 with Prescott, Elliott and Bryant.
The Cowboys have seen environment friendly quarterback performances and prolific working video games, however what has held them again is their incapability to constantly mesh these parts into explosiveness. With Garrett handing the offense to Kellen Moore, now’s the time to dial the offense up an additional notch and absolutely belief Prescott as a passer.
As for Elliott, who continues to carry out for a brand new contract, Jones not often fails to please his gamers monetarily. Even with the contracts for Prescott and Cooper looming, too, Jones can discover a solution to give Elliott his deal. However the Cowboys maintain sufficient leverage that, when the video games rely, they will wager on Elliott being there.

Dallas has the defensive make-up, too, beginning with the linebacker spine of Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith. Round that duo, the Cowboys are deep with disruptive linemen and play-making defensive backs, from Demarcus Lawrence again to Byron Jones.
Nobody will confuse this group with the Doomsday Protection of the 1960s and ’70s or early ’90s. However on this trendy, pass-happy period of the NFL and free company, the Cowboys have managed to construct a great, complementary crew. With slightly extra aggressiveness on that facet of the ball, too, Dallas will have the ability to produce extra large performs by committee – very like the latest Cowboys Tremendous Bowl groups did.
The Cowboys have a shorter Tremendous Bowl portal this time round; they aren’t headed for a repeat of their dynastic days within the 1990s. However given the way in which this workforce is supplied in 2019, and with Prescott on the cusp of now not being underpaid, Dallas is aware of this ought to be – and must be – the 12 months.
After getting battle-tested whereas navigating a top-heavy NFC this season, the Cowboys will use their expertise to place all of it collectively mentally and bodily in a method they have not accomplished for years. Jones’ endurance in his roster-building – and in Garrett – will repay in an overdue breakthrough.
