Here are 5 bold predictions for Cowboys-Chargers
5. Jabril Cox will play meaningful snaps
Fifth-round picks aren’t generally forced into significant action early during their rookie seasons. Cox will find himself thrown into the fire against the Chargers’ high-flying aerial attack in this game.
The former LSU standout is going to find himself on the field on obvious passing downs. Part of his job will be to stop Jared Cook from hurting the Cowboys’ defense on short and intermediate throws. Keanu Neal will be Dallas’ first option to handle that role, but he’ll need support from his rookie understudy.
