Cowboys vs. Patriots prediction
The Dallas Cowboys look like they have returned to their pre-Dak Prescott injury form from 2020. They are averaging nearly 40 points per game, and Dak has been nothing less than spectacular. However, what has been most impressive is the team’s ability to perform both on the ground and in the air. RB Ezekiel Elliott has 452 rushing yards and 5 scores, while Tony Pollard has 325 rushing yards.
With a solid rushing attack, the Cowboys have been able to capitalize downfield. Prescott has thrown for 1,368 yards and 13 touchdowns. Meanwhile, WRs CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper each have 300+ receiving yards on the season. Dallas’ versatility on offense has made them one of the most dynamic teams to watch this year.
The new-look Patriots have had an up-and-down season so far. They have had moments where they seem to have everything figured out — but they struggled against the Texans in Week 5. Mac Jones has been serviceable, with 1,243 yards, 5 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. But the defense has taken a step back compared to 2020.
Does Dallas have too much firepower for New England?
There are some interesting trends in this Cowboys vs. Patriots matchup. First, Dallas is 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five games as a favorite. Meanwhile, New England is 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games as a home underdog. However, most — if not all — of those games were with Tom Brady under center. You need to throw those numbers out the door when looking at this very new Patriots team.
I like Dallas to get the road win in this one. They have spent the last three games at home and should be well-rested heading into New England. Jones will likely make one or two mistakes, and the way this Cowboys defense is playing, that could spell the end for the Patriots.
