Las Vegas Raiders at Dallas Cowboys: 3 things to watch in Week 12

Lack of WRs for Dallas

The Dallas Cowboys have some issues on the offensive side of the ball going into this matchup, but a few of them could be cleared up by the time the two teams release their list of inactives. CeeDee Lamb suffered a concussion against the Kansas City Chiefs this past Sunday, but he is a guy who is pointing towards playing against the Silver and Black.

The other top option at wide receiver for Dallas is a former Pro Bowl wideout for the Silver and Black, though he will not play in this game. Amari Cooper is dealing with COVID-19 as we inch closer to this matchup, and will not be quarantined for the required ten days, meaning he will miss both the Chiefs and Raiders games.

That is huge news for this Raiders defense, one that has been atrocious as of late, and would certainly have an issue locking down both Cooper and Lamb, as well as stopping the rushing attack led by Ezekiel Elliott. If Lamb can go, he needs to be the top priority for this defense when it comes to the passing game for Dallas, or else he is going to go off.
