Falcons at Cowboys Betting Preview: Falcons (+4/-110), Cowboys (-4/-110)
Todd Gurley was his vintage self last Sunday until the Falcons had to shift to a pass-happy attack due to time and score in an opening loss to the Seahawks. Gurley gets a crack at a Dallas defense besieged by injury at linebacker.
The Cowboys didn’t contain Gurley’s former backup, Malcolm Brown, in Week 1. Brown averaged 4.4 yards per carry and had 79 yards on 18 carries.
The Falcons aim for better balance this week but bring a sledgehammer of a passing attack that had three 100-yard receivers Week 1 (Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, Russell Gage) with tight end Hayden Hurst looming.
Points are not expected to be a problem for Dallas this season. Their most obvious advantage over Atlanta is in the running game, where a reliable offensive line should gain more traction plowing into a defense built for speed.
The Cowboys have an impressive crew of pass-catchers, too, with rookie CeeDee Lamb behind Amari Cooper and deep threat Michael Gallup. Atlanta’s secondary buckled against Russell Wilson last week and the Cowboys are likely to feature similar packages with plenty of designed throws to Ezekiel Elliott to draw the second level to the line of scrimmage.
Dallas continues to look for consistent play from its secondary. If Demarcus Lawrence and Aldon Smith aren’t able to get to the quarterback, a shootout becomes far more likely.

If any NFL owner is going to create a homefield edge, it’s Jerry Jones. Some 20,000 fans are expected at AT&T Stadium but none of them are getting a chance to tackle Matt Ryan.
Atlanta continues to fling it until the final whistle with a chance to escape with the upset.

‘Feed Me’ belly tattoo lovers are likely to get another peek or two at Zeke’s six pack on Sunday. The Falcons are susceptible in the red zone and Elliott found paydirt twice at LA last week.
