Baltimore will take on their toughest opponent of the season so far when they head down to Arlington, Texas to take on the 8-1 Dallas Cowboys. It's not a favorable matchup no matter which way you slice it. FiveThirtyEight.com has the Ravens' chances to win at 25%, but if you've heard any analyst () talk about the game, Baltimore's odds are seemingly much worse. However, if the Cowboys are going to lose a second game this year, it's going to be because of shutdown defense by their opponent, something Ravens are second to none at providing. Dallas has coasted to eight straight victories thanks in no small part to Ezekiel Elliott and the running game, which has elevated the Cowboys to second in the league in total rushing yards with 1449. Meanwhile, however, Baltimore is the best team at stopping the running game, having allowed only 642 yards all year. 

Working in the Ravens' favor is that they are expecting to get two significant additions back from injury, as CJ Mosley and Marshal Yanda are likely to play should their participation in this week's round of practices serve as any indication.
