Default Should I Start the COWBOYS D, or the BENGALS D?

I own both of them this week.

Dallas is facing Oakland, easy W.

Cincy is facing Cleveland, easy W.

Which defense will do better though? Which should I start?

Oh, and I'm also starting Atl's Jason Snelling over Steve Slaton this week. Good call, IMO.

We only have one sample of Bruce starting at QB for the Raiders, and they scored 20 points that week. I'd be more comfortable starting the Bengals D, because the Browns still flat out suck and that offensive burst was merely a fluke. Flip a coin honestly. Can't exactly go wrong with either.

Dallas is projected to get 17 in my league, Cincy - 12.something

hmmmm

Cincinatti blew up against Oakland last week, and although their record says otherwise, they are still a Marvin Lewis coached team and aren't that great on D. The Browns still have some firepower, while Oakland got plain lucky last week that Caldwell can't hold onto the football. I sat the Saints D against the Pats this week and am playing the Cowboys instead. They have a great Thanksgiving record and played well against a Redskins team that has more offensive firepower than the Raiders (I know it sounds stupid, but they kinda do). Start the Cowboys.

This is so inaccurate.

You do realize that Marvin Lewis is a defensive coach first and was the defensive coordinator of many great defenses in Baltimore long before joining the Bengals?

The Bengals are the #2 rated rush defense in the league. They are borderline top 10 in pass defense as well.

What kind of firepower does Cleveland have? Are you aware that they failed to score an offensive touchdown in the 3 previous games prior to playing Detroit.

The Raiders have a much better and more talented offense than the Browns and the Cowboys defense simply isn't as good as the Bengals defense. This is a clear cut decision as it gets.

you don't have a hard time saying that after last week?

it wasn't the Raider's O that won that game, the Bengals fumbled it away twice and threw an int...

while Dallas' D looked like the freakin 2000 Ravens...


I think it is pretty much a coin flip muself, but I know damn well the Dallas secondary won't look as bad as Cincy did...you aren't gonna see our guys getting burned...

if the Raiders win, it will be because of turnovers, just like with Cincy...

Have you seen the Browns yet this year? They're worse than the Raiders by a large margin.

yeah, they probably are...it doesn't get much more hopless than that...

like I said, I think it is a coin flip...

I can see Dallas blanking the Raiders though...THEY SHOULD keep that team below 10 points...

2 Dallas TDs should be enough to win the game...

I ended up starting Dallas if anyone cares. Ended up only getting me 9 points of their projected 17, despite holding OAK to 7 points. WTF?
