Suh Looking To Make Impact As Lions Visit Cowboys In NFC Wild Card Game On Sunday

Posted by Stan Simmons on 1/2/2015 9:10:15 PM

Ndamakong Suh is among the biggest reasons why the Detroit Lions defense is the best in the NFL against the run this season. It only makes sense that he will play this weekend and try to slow down one of the league’s most dynamic running backs. Suh had his one-game suspension overturned and will be looking to cause havoc for the Lions when they visit the Dallas Cowboys for their NFC Wild Card game this Sunday. Detroit is coming off an 11-win season and making its first playoff appearance since 2012 and it will be interesting to see how their dominant defense matches up against the Dallas offense.

AT &T Stadium, Arlington, Texas

NFL Betting Line: Dallas -6.5

For as good as Murray has been it’s Tony Romo that has been talked about more heading in to the playoffs after he posted the highest quarterback rating ever for the month of December. Romo is coming off a brilliant season but all eyes will be on him to see if he can pull out a playoff victory with so much talent surrounding him this postseason.

Suh will play a massive role both literally and figuratively when it comes to slowing down Romo and the Cowboys attack. The Lions have limited opponents to under 70 rushing yards per game this season but they will be in tough against Murray and an offensive line that sent three players to the Pro Bowl. The bigger concern might be on offense where Matt Stafford is coming off a strong season but has struggled on the road against playoff caliber teams. All four of Detroit’s road losses this year came against teams that will compete in this year’s postseason and the fact that Stafford has never beaten a playoff team on the road in his career has to be a major concern going in. Stafford has no shortage of weapons led by Calvin Johnson but whether or not he can handle the pressure of the big stage is the real question now.

That question has also been posed of Romo for some time now and while he has answered the call with excellent numbers this season it will be interesting to see if he can get the job done with his arm if the ground game stalls. Murray ran for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns and that allowed the Cowboys to be more conservative with their play calls and allowed Romo to pick his spots more carefully rather than forcing the football to try to win games. The Dallas defense has also been a lot better than expected thanks in big part to Rolando McClain and a group that has had a “bend but don’t break” type mentality all season. The Cowboys defense will look to keep everything in front of them and if they can get an early lead they will benefit from being able to pressure Stafford and trying to get him to make mistakes.

NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

Even despite everything we know about these teams after a long year of football it’s amazing how little we will know about this game until it actually starts. The match ups are set but how the game plays out can depend largely on the first 10 minutes and which team can take the early lead. Dallas has been the more dominant team down the stretch and they have the home field advantage even though they have also been very good on the road all year. The same can’t be said for Stafford and the Lions though and if they fall behind early then this game could get ugly as the Cowboys look to put on a show in front of Jerry Jones and their fans.
