The Dallas Cowboys have been solid against the run all season, so this weekend sees them trying to stop the high flying pass attack of the Detroit Lions. However, ESPN reported on Oct. 26 that Cowboys’ defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin was talking more about running back Reggie Bush this week, saying how impressed he is with him. Here is how you can follow the Cowboys vs. Lions live stream and TV coverage of their game this weekend.

Cowboys Player to Watch: Dez Bryant
A lot of people have been comparing Dez Bryant to Calvin Johnson, and that is why all eyes will be on those two receivers in this big game. DeMarco Murray is still injured, so Bryant will get a lot of looks in this game, and with the Lions defense not very good at stopping the pass, this could be Bryant’s fourth 100 yard game of the season as he tries to outplay his Lions’ counterpart.
Lions Player to Watch: Calvin Johnson
Unlike Bryant, Johnson has already proven that he is the best wide receiver in the NFL. However, he is coming off injuries and is slightly hobbled. There is also the fact that he will face a Cowboys defense that may give up a lot of passing yards, but they are not always to the number one receivers. This will be a tough game for Johnson to get too many looks, but he is good enough for that not to matter.
The Dallas Cowboys just took sole possession of first place in the NFC East, but they are a Jekyll and Hyde team, and you never know who is going to show up. They are best against the run, and will do a decent job in slowing down Reggie Bush, but will have trouble stopping Matthew Stafford. Dallas should win this in a close game, but it won’t be easy.
