If the trends are true, the Dallas Cowboys will be 4-4, and their fans will wake up happy on Tuesday morning.

Here are three big reasons why the Cowboys should beat Tennessee on "Monday Night Football":

1.  Dallas is undefeated at home this season.  

While 0-4 on the road, the Cowboys have held serve at home against the New York Giants, Detroit and Jacksonville.  Not only have the Cowboys been strong at AT&T Stadium this season, they will have newly-acquired wide receiver Amari Cooper in the offensive bag-of-tricks for the first time.  Cooper could add a new dimension to the offense, allowing offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and quarterback Dak Prescott to open things up.

2.  The results so far say it's the Cowboys' turn.

This Dallas team has yet to lose two games in a row.  They're also looking for their first two-game win streak of the season.  Starting with the season-opening loss at Carolina, the Cowboys have fallen into a lose-win-lose-win pattern each week.  They lost to Washington in the game before the bye.  If the trend continues this week, Tennessee is in trouble.

3.  A rare uniform combination.

For only the second time in franchise history, the Cowboys will wear blue tops with white pants.  The first instance came last December, when Dallas beat the New York Giants, 30-10.  The Cowboys will be wearing the blue-white combo at home for the first time in team history.  

One other factor that could work in the Cowboys' favor - Tennessee has lost three straight games coming in, including a loss to the woeful Buffalo Bills.  Gametime is 7:15 Monday night at AT&T Stadium.  You can hear the game on 105.3 The Fan, with Brad Sham, Babe Laufenberg and Kristi Scales on the call.
