The Carolina Panthers and Dallas Cowboys play Thanksgiving afternoon at AT&T Stadium.
The Carolina Panthers look for their fifth road win to remain undefeated on the season. Cam Newton is completing 56.9 percent of his passes for 2,283 yards, 20 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Newton has nine touchdown passes in his last three games. Greg Olsen and Ted Ginn Jr. have combined for 1,163 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns while Devin Funchess has 16 receptions. The Carolina Panthers ground game is averaging 139.9 yards per contest, and Jonathan Stewart leads the way with 764 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Carolina is allowing 19.1 points and 322.8 yards per game. Thomas Davis leads the Panthers with 69 tackles, Kawann Short has six sacks and Josh Norman has 14 pass deflections. Andrew Norwell, Charles Johnson and Charles Tillman are questionable.
The Dallas Cowboys look for back-to-back wins for just the second time this season. Tony Romo is completing 72 percent of his passes for 778 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions. Romo has thrown two picks in two of his three games this year. Jason Witten and Terrance Williams have combined for 924 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Cole Beasley has 33 receptions. The Dallas Cowboys ground game is averaging 123.7 yards per contest, and Darren McFadden leads the way with 623 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 22.8 points and 335.8 yards per game. Barry Church leads the Cowboys with 77 tackles, Greg Hardy has 4.5 sacks and Byron Jones has six pass deflections. Morris Claiborne, Ryan Russell and Brice Butler are questionable.
The Dallas Cowboys were my Super Bowl pick before the season and when they're healthy they are a contender. I've been really impressed with what I've seen from the Panthers so far, but on short rest and on the road, it's the Cowboys who have the advantage. Dallas is still riding on that high with Romo back and truly thinks it has just enough time to make a run at the NFC East.
I think this is where the Panthers get their first loss of the season.
