Cowboys vs. Raiders Analysis

FREMONT, Calif. (AP) _ The Dallas Cowboys -- with three straight tight games to start this season -- have learned a lot about themselves. It's sometimes about who thrives under pressure. The Cowboys have won two games going into Sunday's matchup with the winless Oakland Raiders. The scary part for Dallas is that Randy Moss always has big days against the team he thinks should've drafted him -- and he's yet to have one for Oakland. With the Raiders playing at home before restless fans, the timing might be right for Moss, especially against a Cowboys secondary that's been vulnerable to the long ball. To win, Dallas will have to control the clock on offense _ essentially playing keep-away from Randy _ and get some stops from the defense. Doing so will require more pressure from the 3-4, preventing Kerry Collins from having time to throw deep and better coverage and tackling from cornerbacks and safeties. Coach Bill Parcells signed quarterback Drew Bledsoe because he believes the 33-year-old can still sling it with the best of them.
