In a clash of two teams with a cavalcade of preseason Super Bowl hype, the Dallas Cowboys will travel east to take on the Baltimore Ravens in a Week 6 nonconference contest.
The Cowboys come into Sunday’s game fresh off a much-needed bye week. When we last saw Jason Garrett’s squad, it was failing miserably in a 34-18 loss to the Chicago Bears as the offense seemingly could not stop turning the ball over.

Bryant has had his fair share of off-field troubles. He’s almost as well known for those as he is for that nine-touchdown, 933-yard performance he had in 2011, his second year in the league. He shows flashes of brilliance, but he’s infuriatingly unable to live up to his potential.
Many a fantasy owner expected big things from him this year, and thus far, they’ve gotten nothing except a single 100-plus-yard performance, zero touchdowns and an average of five fantasy points per game.
Meanwhile, a guy like Calvin Johnson is averaging 14 fantasy points. Even Wes Welker—who’s been notoriously underutilized over the first four weeks on New England‘s offense—is averaging eight fantasy points per game.
But the tide could turn for Bryant in Week 6 against a Ravens defense that has been terrible against the pass in 2012.
Nonetheless, Dallas is still 2-2 and in the hunt in the NFC East. A win against a tough opponent could do huge things for a team that has to be running low on confidence.
Looking to send the Cowboys’ season into a spiral is a Ravens squad that won an ugly 9-6 game over the Kansas City Chiefs last week. After weeks of relying on top-notch offensive performances to come out victorious, the 4-1 Baltimore team reverted to the old school in Week 5.
With both teams looking for a win and to prove themselves, this one should be a great contest. For that reason, here’s a look at everything you need to know about Sunday’s game.
