Sunday’s match-up between the Dallas Cowboys and Indianapolis Colts will have plenty of eyes on it.

The good news for the Cowboys is that running back DeMarco Murray is expected to play. His surgically repaid hand will be wrapped and while he should see plenty of carries he will likely be replaced by Joseph Randle/Lance Dunbar in passing situations.

If the Cowboys win today they could rest Murray and plenty of others in next weekends game against the Redskins. But given they would have a chance for a bye stay tuned.

The Colts may not have T.Y. Hilton for this game as well which further is good news for the Cowboys.

Hilton has been doubtful for much of the week, even though he has the questionable tag. He will try out his hamstring in warm-ups. Donte Moncrief will see an expanded role opposite of Reggie Wayne. Hakeem Nicks could also see an uptick in production.
