Total: 46.5 points
Dallas has two losses on the season, both coming to the New York Giants. Outside of that, the Cowboys have really played well this season. Tonight they welcome in a Tampa Bay team that also has playoff aspirations this year and is looking for a marquee win.
The Bucs have won five of their six road games this season. Dallas, likewise, has won five of six games at home so both will be ready to go in this one.
Dallas needs Dak Prescott to have a big game. The rookie quarterback has struggled a little bit the last month, failing to throw for 200 yards in each of his last three games. But that really is just an inconvenience as Dallas has won two of those three games. Prescott still has only four interceptions on the season compared to his 20 touchdown passes. While the Tony Romo starting over him idea has gotten some legs recently, there’s really no reason for the Cowboys to make the change.
Ezekiel Elliot is averaging almost five yards a carry this season for Dallas, he should get a bulk of carries tonight for the Cowboys and have a big game.
Tampa comes in winners of five straight with wins over Seattle and Kansas City. The defense has been the big key for the Bucs, who have given up just 12.8 points per game to opponents during the win streak. That defense will be critical to any success they may have in this one.
