The Tennessee Titans take on the Dallas Cowboys in a primetime showdown Monday Night in a game where the loser faces long odds to make the playoffs. Both teams enter tonight’s game at 3-4, but it’s worth noting that the Cowboys are 3-0 at home and 0-4 on the road.

The Cowboys are sitting in third place in the NFC East right now, but a win could put them in a tie with the Philadelphia Eagles for second place in a relatively tight division. The Titans on the other hand are in second place, but are far behind the 6-3 Houston Texans for the division lead.

Like many Jason Garrett-led teams, people still don’t really know what to make of the Cowboys and whether they’re any good or not. The Titans are in a similar position as first-year head coach Mike Vrabel has held his own with a team marred by injuries to their best players. Unbeknownst to many, it should be noted that thus far these are the best two defensive teams in the league. That’ll be something to watch tonight.

Who will prevail tonight? Can Amari Cooper put on a show against a stiff Titans secondary? Can the Titans’ front seven shut down Ezekiel Elliot? Let us know what you think in the comments.
