The Dallas Cowboys host the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, looking to bounce back from last week's home loss to Denver.

Dallas will continue to be without defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence, and this week put end Randy Gregory on injured reserve, which means he will miss at least three weeks. The Cowboys lost linebacker Jabril Cox to a knee injury against the Vikings.

Atlanta beat New Orleans on a last-second field goal last week and is playing without wide receiver Calvin Ridley, who left the team for personal reasons.

Jon Machota of The Athletic joined Big Game Friday Morning to preview Sunday's game and discuss the Cowboys' place in the NFC.

After a 30-16 loss to the Denver Broncos in which they trailed by 30 at point, the Dallas Cowboys will get back on track against the Atlanta Falcons, Jon Machota of The Athletic tells Big Game Friday Morning.

It's also the first week of the high school football playoffs and NBC 5's Big Game Friday Game of the Week is Prosper against Flower Mound Marcus. Greg Tepper from Dave Campbell's Texas Football joined the show to explain which schools from North Texas have a chance to win state titles.

The first round of the high school football playoffs starts this week and Greg Tepper of Dave Campbell's Texas Football says there are several teams from the Dallas-Fort Worth area that have a chance to play for a title.
