Cowboys vs. Falcons: Dunta Robinson says Dallas has big, physical playmakers

Scott Cunningham

The Atlanta Falcons are expecting a physical game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

Atlanta Falcons' cornerback Dunta Robinson called the Dallas Cowboys playmakers some of the biggest and most physical they'll see. Despite the Cowboys' tendency to get in their own way, like quarterback Tony Romo throwing four interceptions last week against the New York Giants and five against the Chicago Bears on Oct. 1, the Falcons are well aware of Dallas' ability.

Dallas' top three receivers (Jason Witten, Miles Austin, Dez Bryant) have combined for 1,536 yards and seven touchdowns this season. Their third wide receiver, Kevin Ogletree, has seen limited involvement lately, but showed his playmaking capabilities with 114 receiving yards in the season opener against the Giants.

Robinson is expecting a physical matchup.

The Falcons pass defense this season is giving up 216.9 yards per game, ranked 10th in the league. These teams last met in 2009, when the Cowboys won, 37-21, and Miles Austin logged 171 receiving yards.

Atlanta boasts a 7-0 record, the only unbeaten team left in this season.
