Breaking down the Bucs-Cowboys matchups


Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

I think most of us agree that the Cowboys have more talent (and experience) than the Bucs. But it's still worth taking a look at some of the key matchups.

I actually think the Cowboys could have trouble with the Bucs' two tight ends. But eventually DeMarcus Ware is going to get to Byron Leftwich -- and more than once or twice.

In his key matchups breakdown, Dallas Morning News blogger Tim MacMahon calls Aqib Talib and Ronde Barber an "outstanding" cornerback tandem. Really?

That's not exactly how I would describe Barber at this stage of his career. And Talib still has a lot to prove. I think Talib and Barber comprise a pretty mediocre cornerback tandem at this point.
