Cowboys CBs vs. Chargers WR Eddie Royal: Royal has collected five touchdown catches through the first three games, and it would have been six if not for a penalty last week. In his first season with the Chargers, he is playing off the threat provided by tight end Antonio Gates, especially in the slot. But at 5-foot-10, Royal is not a big receiver, which gives Morris Claiborne and Orlando Scandrick a chance to match him physically. Normally, Brandon Carr might take Royal — familiar with him from their Kansas City-Denver days — but the Cowboys might choose to use Carr’s size against the 6-foot-5 Malcom Floyd.
