NFL Odds: Cowboys-Patriots in Super Bowl Warm-Up?

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 19-Nov-2019

The New England Patriots (9-1 SU, 7-3 ATS) are on the fast track to another Super Bowl appearance. The Dallas Cowboys (6-4 SU and ATS) are on the cusp of breaking out in the NFC. They'll meet this Sunday in Foxborough; kick-off is at 4:25 PM ET on Fox, with the defending champions laying 7 points at press time.

While the Cowboys have a tenuous one-game lead in the NFC East, they've played very well when their offensive line has been healthy. Unfortunately, RT La'el Collins had to leave last week's 35-27 win over Detroit (+7.5 at home) after hurting his knee in the fourth quarter. His status for Week 12 remains uncertain; he's joined by RG Connor Williams (knee) on the injured list for Dallas.

As easy as life is for the Patriots in the AFC East, they've had mixed results on offense with 42-year-old QB Tom Brady and a depleted corps of receivers. Phillip Dorsett is the latest wideout to go down; he suffered a concussion during last week's 17-10 win over Philadelphia (+5 at home) while catching the game-winning touchdown – thrown by fellow WR Julian Edelman. Dorsett is iffy at best to face the Cowboys
