With all of the emphasis in the NFL on offense, it has become increasingly important for defenses around the League to find a guy or two who is not just a playmaker, but a game-changer.

The Dolphins (3-7) look to make it four straight wins as they visit the equally Dallas Cowboys (6-4) on Thanksgiving Day.
While the Fins are coming off wins over the Chiefs, Redskins and Bills, the Cowboys have also had recent success–and against some of the same teams. Their last three wins? Seattle, Buffalo and Washington. Dallas is now tied for first in the NFC East with the Giants and feeling good about themselves with a much easier road ahead than New York.
