The Dallas Cowboys look for a big victory to get a game above a .500 record. Brandon Weeden is completing 76.3 percent of his passes for 551 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Weeden has a touchdown pass in five of his last seven games. Jason Witten and Lance Dunbar have combined for 453 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Terrance Williams has 12 receptions. The Dallas Cowboys ground game is averaging 107.8 yards per contest, and Joseph Randle leads the way with 229 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 25.3 points and 347.8 yards per game. Sean Lee leads the Cowboys with 36 tackles, Anthony Hitchens has 1.5 sacks and Tyler Patmon has four pass deflections. Sean Lee and Brice Butler are questionable while Greg Hardy will make his season debut.
Even without Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, the Cowboys have found a way to hang around and have actualy outplayed the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints despite losing both contests. Yes, the Pats are rolling and have had an extra week to prepare, but the Cowboys are still playing solid football in their own right and have an impressive home crowd behind them.
New England probably wins this game, but this is too many points for me to lay in a game that should come down to the wire.
