NFL Week 9 Monday Night Football Titans vs Cowboys

This week's Monday night game offers two scrappy teams that are coming off tough losses in week 8. Both clubs hold a 3-4 record, so this primetime matchup is a great way to make a statement in front of all their rivals. There will be star power on display too, as the Cowboy's Ezekiel Elliot is second in the NFL in rushing yards with 619. This will be the third MNF game of his young career. With a lot on the line for both teams, this should be an exciting matchup, so head over to our sportsbook if you are feeling lucky and make a wager!

Off the heels of a depressing loss to the division-leading Redskins, the Cowboys have had two weeks to regroup and get ready for this prime-time matchup with the Titans. The vast majority of their offense comes from running, as they are 4th in the league in rushing yards (mostly thanks to the efforts of Elliot) yet they rank 20th in the league in points per game with 20. The big story on Monday will be the Cowboys' debut of Amari Cooper, who they traded for during the bye week. The trade is a sign that this team still believes that they have a shot this year, and a win on Monday will go a long way in showing that the Cowboys are willing to put their money where their mouth is. Cooper should open up options for QB Dak Prescott and take some pressure off of Elliot and WR Cole Beasley, who is excited to have Cooper on the squad.

“He’s definitely got juice,” Beasley said. “We knew that before. That’s why they made the deal. They already knew and guys have seen clips of him making plays before. We know what type of player he is. It’s some extra juice added to the offense.”

Injury-wise, Cowboy's DL David Irving was reported to have suffered a possibly severe ankle injury during practice, but there is no final word yet on his availability for Monday's game.

On the Titan's side, the outlook is a little bleaker. They have the third worst offense in the league, averaging a measly 15.1 points per game. They are also 1-3 on the road this year, while Dallas is undefeated at home. QB Marcus Mariota has only thrown one touchdown in the last three games, and has a total of just three all season, while he has racked up 5 interceptions. Defensively they are a little more impressive, allowing 112.3 yards per game rushing and are 11th overall in the league in yards allowed per game with 338.7.

As far as injuries go for the Titans, WR Corey Davis was limited at practice with a hamstring injury. RG Josh Kline (ankle) was also limited, while LB Derrick Morgan remains out. LG Quinton Spain was a full participant in practice on Thursday, which is good news after he missed week 7's game because of a shoulder injury.

This will be the 15th time these two teams play, and the Cowboys have the bragging rights with an 8-6 record. The last time these two teams met was in 2014, when Dallas won 26-10.
