This upcoming Sunday, the New England Patriots will travel south for a difficult Week 4 matchup against a very talented Dallas Cowboys team.
With a history of bending the rules in the past, the Patriots have already been accused by the Cowboys of using some former Dallas players to learn the tactics of New England’s upcoming opponent before Sunday’s contest.
Earlier this week, Cowboys offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer discussed how his team believes the Patriots are basically going to interrogate any former Dallas players on their current roster this week, specifically running back Ezekiel Elliott and quarterback Will Grier.
On Wednesday, New England offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien didn’t sound too worried about any of the Cowboys’ concerns, via Around the NFL and NFL.com.
“Interrogating! Schotty is a good guy. I’ve known Schotty for a long time. I think that’s the way it is every week in this league, every year in this league. I don’t think we’re trying to pull a light over anybody and say, ‘Tell me what you did on July 20 of 2023.’ We’re not doing that. We’re not interrogating anybody. We’re just trying to put together the best game plan we possibly can.”

Instead of worrying about the Patriots doing something completely legal to help their chances to win on Sunday, perhaps Dallas should be more concerned about rebounding after suffering a shocking loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3.
New England is only 1-2 this season, but their two losses came against two of the best teams in the NFL this season, the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins, and all three of their games this year have been decided by seven points or less.
So this not going to be some sort of cakewalk for the Cowboys, who were only able to put 16 points on the scoreboard in their loss to the Cardinals last week.
Whether they are able to come out of the matchup with a victory or not on Sunday, it sounds like Dallas is already coming up with some excuses in case they are handed a loss for the second week in a row.
