Cowboys/Vikings Preview

Hello and welcome to another exciting Thursday Night Football matchup.  Let’s get started.

5:25 PM PT NBC DAL -3.0


(10-1, 5-0 away)



(6-5, 4-1 Home)

How Dallas Wins:  Dak Prescott continues to play unlike his rookie level of experience, and Ezekiel Elliot keeps putting up MVP style numbers.  These two have combined for 29 touchdowns (18 passing, 11 rushing) on the season.  As long as the offense gets out hot the rest should fall into place.

How Minnesota Wins:  Sam Bradford actually has a pretty decent QBR at home, and only one loss there too.  The home crowd should keep this interesting, but Bradford needs to find Stefon Diggs on the outside to match the explosive Cowboy playmakers on the other side of the field.

The Bottom Line:  Sorry Vikings fans, you only win this if you have Adrian Peterson from at least four seasons ago.  The Cowboys are a much more balanced team and I expect them to increase their separation between themselves and the rest of the NFC.

Here are the rest of my picks.  I’m 108-67-2 on the year.

Patriots over Rams

Bears over 49ers

Redskins over Cardinals

Falcons over Chiefs

Raiders over Bills

Broncos over Jaguars

Buccaneers over Chargers

Giants over Steelers

Dolphins over Ravens

Eagles over Bengals

Packers over Texans

Lions over Saints

The Browns and Titans both have byes this week.  I will have the Sunday Night preview between the Seahawks and Panthers, and the Monday Night one between the Jets and Colts later this week.

Edit:  12/7/2016

Still trying to get internet in my new place.  Predicted a Seahawks win over the Panthers and a Colts win over the Jets.  Both were correct, am now 118-72-2
