1.) James Cook will have two receiving touchdowns vs. Cowboys

The second-year electric back in Buffalo has more receiving touchdowns than rushing touchdowns (3 to 1). The offense has a better flow when he is on the field because once he gets into the open field, he shifts into the second gear to get the Bills into a better position.

Last week against the Chiefs, Cook had five receptions for 83 yards and the game’s first touchdown. His route running out of the backfield helps create an open man for Josh Allen which could be extra beneficial against the Cowboys’ pass rush led by Micah Parsons.

The Dallas defense has been no joke this season, but when you have a quarterback like Josh Allen, you will always be in the conversation as a contender. This is the game of the week between these two teams and they will both need to bring their best. Cook is not the main go-to guy, but he provides a separation that the Bills’ passing game can benefit from.

If Allen is able to get the ball off quickly towards Cook’s way, the game can heat up for him and he will have the momentum to see the endzone twice through the air as he provides more of a threat in the pass than in the run.
