This week the Dallas Cowboys go for their third straight win as they face the Detroit Lions in the Motor City.

Silver Star Nation's Mickey Spagnola has the Keys to a Cowboys Victory.

The first key is: No Mr. Suh. The Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has a way of creating havoc for an offense upfront. Can't have it. The guy that has to control Suh is Cowboys offensive guard Brian Waters. It should be a great match-up.

The second key is: This one is a huge match-up. Brandon Carr vs. Wide Receiver Calvin Johnson. History says you're not going to shut out Calvin Johnson, but what Carr has to do is control him. Keep him from taking over a game.

The third key is: C'mon offense. Over the last two games  the Cowboys offense has only had three touchdown drives of more than 15 yards. They've got to have more than that if they expect to win their first back to back road games since 2009, and those are your Silver Star Nation Keys.
