Does Rob Ryan have formula to stop Patriots streak?

The New England Patriots offense is on a roll, having scored 30 or more points in 13 straight games. It began with the final eight games of 2010 and continued with the first five games of 2011.

The streak began following a 34-14 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

The architect of the Browns defense to not only hold the Patriots under the 30 points but under 20 points for only the second time in the last 21 games is new Cowboys coordinator Rob Ryan. Add in the fact that his brother's Rex Ryan's Jets were the only other team to hold them under 20 points during that streak, its safe to assume that the Ryan's know a little about slowing down the high-flying Patriots.

Still a coy coach Jason Garrett wouldn't acknowledge the Cowboys will lean heavily on the Browns game for last season leading into Sunday's matchup against the Pats.

"2011 is different than 2010," Garrett said. "The makeup of their team is different. The makeup of the cowboys team is different  than the Browns team in 2010. We watch a lot of tape. The New England Patriots are awfully good on offense. They have been for a number of years. They have a great offensive system  They have a great quarterback. They have a number of weapons they can get the ball too in the run game and the passing game. Their offensive line is outstanding. So there aren’t many tapes you turn where they are not having success throughout a game. So we will look at them, study them like we do any opponent. We will do our best to try to corral them, stop them. It really is as good as it is in the NFL."

This is going to be a great game. a healthy Cowboy Team that is hungry against a ten year NFL leader.
This one is going to be a Barn Burner!! Get your Pop Corn Ready and your beverages chilled. and go to the Bathroom b4 you tune in.

We'll see, he didn't do too badly with what he had in Cleveland; he's got MORE talent to work with in Dallas; should be an INTERESTING game.

The Key is to keep the Patriot offense off the field. Three and out by us will kill our defense. Jason Garrett MUST throw over the middle more. Tom Brady will throw over the middle more in one drive than we (normally do in one game). When we throw over the middle we have success.

Unfortunately, the NFL is not about forumla's. It requires talent, commitment, good coaching before the game and during the game. And add to that lots of the right kind of experience.

he's have a formula if he had aQB

The defense is still too unfamiliar with Ryan's system to do much against the Pats. I hate to say it but Romo and the offense hold the keys to this one. I just pray that Garrett runs the ball more because the Pats secondary can be beat, but we need a good running game to make happe. Not to mention getting the ball out of Romo's hands as much as possible.

Fat chance! He might have a formula for reducing weight but he is not using it.

Rob Ryan is a defensive genius. He better make sure the Pats don't pass all over Dallas

he's have a formula if he had aQB who didn't throw games for him
