The Dallas Cowboys travel to Michigan to take on the Detroit Lions. This is probably the marquee game of the week. The Cowboys won sole possession of first place in the NFC East with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles last week. The Vikings are 4-3 and in the thick of things atop the NFC North division.
This game has been highlighted between the back and forth between the Cowboys organization and Lions organization over Dez Bryant’s comments about Calvin Johnson.
“I believe I can do whatever he can do,” Bryant said. “I think it’s just a pride thing. When it comes to football, just being on the field, it’s a mind-set and having a mentality. I honestly believe when I’m there, I’ll be feeling like there’s nothing I can’t do.”
Lions wide receiver Nate Burleson disagreed.
“Listen, I like Dez, I think he’s one of the best receivers in the game right now, very talented, fast, big, strong,” Burleson said. “He possesses all the tools to possibly be as good as Calvin. But he’s not Calvin Johnson. No way, no how. Sorry, Dez. Keep it real.”
It will be an interesting match up to watch.
