The Cowboys will try to hand the Falcons their first loss of the season.

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Dallas Cowboys will try to recover from their 29-24 loss last week against the New York Giants. Turnovers were the reason the Cowboys lost last week, and Tony Romo had three interceptions. This week they will have an even tougher matchup as they go on the road to take on the NFL's only undefeated team in the 7-0 Atlanta Falcons.

The Falcons are coming off of a big 30-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles, and quarterback Matt Ryan had a big game by completing 22-of-29 passes as well as throwing three touchdown passes on his first three possessions.

The Cowboys will likely be going up against the Falcons without starting running back DeMarco Murray who missed practice all week with a foot injury. However, backup running back Felix Jones is also banged up and has been limited most of this past week.

The offense could be relying mostly on Romo and the passing game to get past the Falcons. Turnovers must be limited, and the Cowboys defense will need a big game in order to hand the Falcons their first loss of the year.
