St. Louis Rams (1-1) at Dallas Cowboys (1-1) This game is relatively meaningless for the Cowboys as compared to next week’s game against the Saints in Dallas. Teams are 74-117 ATS as road favorites before being home underdogs since 1989, including 20-39 ATS when both games are non-divisional. They could easily overlook the Rams. They [...]

The Cowboys desperately needed defensive line help this off-season, especially defensive tackle help. After losing Jason Hatcher to the Redskins, there might not have been a single team needier for any single position than the Cowboys were for a defensive tackle. Things were so desperate for the Cowboys at defensive tackle this season that Nick [...]

Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) at Dallas Cowboys (8-7) I was kicking myself when I saw this line opened at Philadelphia -3. It was at Dallas -3 a week ago and there was no reason not to take that, even before Philadelphia demolished Chicago last week. For one, Philadelphia is obviously a better team than the Cowboys, [...]

Washington Redskins (3-11) at Dallas Cowboys (7-7) At first glance, this line doesn’t make any sense. In what universe are the Cowboys 6 points better than the Redskins (3 points for home field advantage)? The Cowboys’ defense not only is the worst defense in the NFL, but it’s approaching historically bad. They only thing they [...]

Green Bay Packers (6-6-1) at Dallas Cowboys (7-6) Aaron Rodgers has been ruled out for this one, so the line has been posted. The Packers have opened as 7 point underdogs. You check see all of the NFL lines at However, even though Aaron Rodgers is out, that doesn’t mean the Packers will have trouble [...]

Oakland Raiders (4-7) at Dallas Cowboys (6-5) I’m completely split on this one. On one hand, non-divisional home favorites dominate on Thursdays, going 30-14 ATS since 1989. This makes sense. Playing on a short week is rough, but it’s even rougher when you have to travel on a short week. That cuts into valuable preparation [...]

Last week: 14 (-6) Record: 5-5 It’s arguable the Saints’ win over the Cowboys was the most lopsided contest in NFL history. While the Saints set the NFL record with 40 first downs, the Cowboys ran just 43 plays. The Saints’ +31 first down margin was the best in NFL history. The closest came when [...]

Last week: 11 (+0) Record: 4-3 I don’t know where that defensive effort came from. The Cowboys, who were getting destroyed defensively all season, gave up just 3 points to a previously pretty solid Philadelphia offense on the road, despite missing DeMarcus Ware. They forced the Eagles’ quarterback combination of Nick Foles and Matt Barkley [...]

Dallas Cowboys (3-3) at Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) I’ve maintained the whole time that the Cowboys are the best team in the NFC East, especially with the rest of the division flopping in spectacular fashion this season. The Eagles are the best of the rest this season, going 3-3 with wins over both the Giants and [...]

Last week: 10 (-1) Record: 3-3 The Cowboys would be higher on this list if it wasn’t for the sheer volume of injuries they’ve suffered. DeMarcus Ware, Jay Ratliff, Jason Hatcher, and Anthony Spencer were supposed to be their starters on the defensive line this season. Spencer is out for the season. Ratliff has yet [...]
