|Date & Time||Sunday November 22, 2015, 1:00 PM (EST)|
The Line: Miami Dolphins PK -- Over/Under: 47.5
The Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins square off Sunday afternoon at Sun Life Stadium.
The Dallas Cowboys have to win out if they have any chance to sneak into the playoffs. Tony Romo is completing 75 percent of his passes for 551 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Romo has missed the last seven games with a broken collarbone. Jason Witten and Terrance Williams have combined for 818 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Cole Beasley has 32 receptions. The Dallas Cowboys ground game is averaging 119 yards per contest, and Darren McFadden leads the way with 494 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 23.8 points and 349.8 yards per game. Barry Church leads the Cowboys with 73 tackles, Greg Hardy has four sacks and Byron Jones has six pass deflections. Sean Lee, Morris Claiborne and Brice Butler are questionable.
The Miami Dolphins look for a big home win to get back to a .500 record. Ryan Tannehill is completing 63.6 percent of his passes for 2,454 yards, 15 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Tannehill has two touchdown passes in his last three games. Rishard Matthews and Jarvis Landry have combined for 1,234 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Kenny Stills has 16 receptions. The Miami Dolphins ground game is averaging 102.8 yards per contest, and Lamar Miller leads the way with 521 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Miami is allowing 25 points and 390.2 yards per game. Reshad Jones leads the Dolphins with 83 tackles, Ndamukong Suh has four sacks and Brent Grimes has nine pass deflections. Damien Williams, Jelani Jenkins and Spencer Paysinger are questionable.
Honestly, I'm sick and tired of picking the Cowboys and them finding creative ways to blow it. Sure, Romo at quarterback does change things, but do we really expect him to be a miracle worker right away after missing seven weeks? This is an elimination game for both teams, as the loser can start looking ahead to the offseason.
I'll take the team that's at home and isn't bringing in a quarterback who has missed nearly two months of playing time.
