    Figured I'd carry over the conversation from the Week 5 thread to here since it'll happen anyway.

    Make your predictions - Cowboys-Pats ... will it be the game of the year? Game of the day? or will it just be lame?

    This comes from the DMN's Cowboys blog: Thought this might be good fodder:

    Wade Phillips doesn't think his previous encounters with Patriots QB Tom Brady mean anything this week. Phillips is quick to point out that the Cowboys have different personnel than the Chargers, so he's altered his scheme.

    But Brady has not performed particularly well against the Phillips 3-4. A look at Brady's games against the Chargers the last two seasons:

    San Diego 41, Patriots 17 (Oct. 2, 2005) -- Brady completed 19 or 32 passes for 224 yards with one TD and one INT in a blowout that snapped the Patriots' 21-game home winning streak. New England had only two first downs in the second half.

    Patriots 24, Chargers 21 (Jan. 7, 2007) -- Brady struggled most of the playoff game, completing 27 of 51 passes and getting picked off three times. But he made enough plays to win, passing for 280 yards and three TDs. Marlon McCree's interception probably would have sealed the win for San Diego, but the Patriots got new life by forcing a fumble on the return. Brady took advantage by throwing a TD pass and setting up the game-winning field goal with a deep ball to Reche Caldwell on the next possession.

    Could be a hell of a game.

    Disappointing that everyone says this is no big deal.

    I predict some TD passes from No. 81.

    It is a big deal. This could be the best team yet that the Patriots have soundly beaten.

    I just hope the Cowboys make it a game or even beat the Pats, just to get all of you off of their backs for one lousy game last Monday in Buffalo. The Pats' haven't played anybody either. Look at their opponents' W- L record and it might be one or maybe two away from the Cowboys'.

    The game of the year is still a few weeks away: Pats vs. Colts.

    That said, this could be one helluva game. And I'm gonna go with the Cowboys because I despise everything New England.

    Tommy, I just keep thinking of this past week and the opener. In the opener against the Giants, their defense looked very vulnerable. Their offense, particularly Romo, looked very shaky against a bad Buffelo defense.

    I saw the Bills before the injuries really hit hard, and they looked like shit then. That's a tough team to look bad against, but the Cowboys managed Monday night. Makes me wonder about them a bit.
