The Dallas Cowboys are looking to rebound from a loss to the San Diego Chargers last weekend. Unfortunately for the Cowboys it won’t get any easier this week. The Cowboys are playing host to the league’s best team, the Denver Broncos. With Peyton Manning at the helm the Broncos are undefeated and averaging 44.75 points a game.
Most of the offense’s success has been because of the arm of Peyton Manning who has thrown for 1,470 yards and 16 touchdowns this season. The Cowboys secondary is bracing for Manning’s attack and some of the Cowboys defense are already tired of hearing about how great Peyton Manning is.
“I’m sick of hearing about Peyton Manning,” said Sims, via the Dallas Morning News. “We just got to go out there and do what we’ve got to do.”
“You hear it all the time when a guy walks into the locker room: ‘Peyton Manning threw for four touchdowns, this and that,’” Sims said. “Yeah, he’s a great player. You can’t take that away from him. But at the end of the day, we’re all competitors. And me being a competitor, I don’t like that. I am ready to play football.”
The Cowboys pass defense ranks 27th in the NFL according to ESPN. They’ve allowed an average of 304.5 yards per game.
