The melodrama that is the Dallas Cowboys head to Atlanta to take on the 7-0 Falcons.Dallas Cowboys (3-4): Tony Romo has been sharing the ball with the other team often over the last four weeks.Romo has thrown ten interceptions over that span to only five touchdowns. Romo still has the ability to throw for enough yards to make him fantasy worthy.DeMarco Murray has been ruled out for Sunday night.Felix Jones has been dinged up during his two starts in place of Murray but is still expected to get the start again this week. Watch for Phillip Tanner to get more work though as the Cowboys will play it safe with Jones' health.Miles Austin has had two consecutive good games and will try to continue his good play on prime time TV Sunday night against the Falcons.Dez Bryant has made plenty of bonehead mistakes both on and off the field and doesn't seem ready to mature yet. A superior talent, Bryant has already shown us what he can do this season and I look for him to repeat that performance with everyone watching.Jason Witten has been awoken and had a Dallas Cowboys' record 18 receptions last week. After a slow start to the season, Witten has compiled some good game over the last few weeks.Good starts: Felix Jones, Jason Witten, Miles Austin, Dez BryantMiddle of the road: Tony RomoBad starts: Kevin Ogletree Atlanta Falcons (7-0): Matt Ryan is still my vote for MVP this season. Ryan has thrown for 17 touchdowns and 2,018 yards. He and the Falcons play great at home, while the match-up is tough you can not sit Ryan at this point.Michael Turner has shocked a few people with some of the games he has had this season and is playing the perfect part in the Falcons' offense.Roddy White, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez are all must-starts every week.Good starts: Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez, Julio Jones, Matt RyanMiddle of the road: Michael TurnerBad starts: Harry Douglas
