The Miami Dolphins are hosting the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday for their preseason home opener.

Both teams will be looking to answer some personnel questions prior to the August 26 roster cuts.

Here are five bold predictions for Cowboys vs. Dolphins.

Bruce Carter, Will Lose His Starting Spot

There’s no one on earth that can deny how bad Bruce Carter has looked through two preseason games. He’s been awful in pass coverage, but he’s been worse against the run. I can’t see him being in Dallas’ starting lineup much longer.

Ja’Wuan James, Will Continue his Pass Protection Dominance

It’s not often that a rookie tackle can come in and protect the way Ja’Wuan James has, but he’s doing it. In fact, he has yet to let a defender pressure the quarterback, much less hit or sack them. The Cowboys “pass-rush” won’t be a challenge for him.

Zach Minter, Will Shine, Again

It didn’t take long for newcomer Zach Minter to make his presence felt, did it? He finished the game against the Baltimore Ravens with four tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss, a quarterback pressure and a forced fumble. He’ll get another chance to shine against a Miami offensive line that isn’t very good on the inside.

Will Davis, Will Test the Cowboys Receivers

Will Davis might not be the biggest guy, but he sure plays like he is. Davis has been one of the few bright spots on the Dolphins’ defense, and I expect his high level of play to continue in Week 3.

Dustin Vaughan, Will Force the Cowboys to Keep Three QBs

I got to see Dustin Vaughan play against my alma mater, Texas A&M University-Commerce, and each time I saw him play, I was impressed. So, seeing him play in the NFL is not as shocking as it might be to some, who are seeing him play for the first time. I think, that after Sunday, the Cowboys won’t be trying to sneak him onto the practice squad, but rather keeping him as the third quarterback.
