Cowboys Seeking 4th Straight

Falcons Need a Win

The Falcons beat the Packers in their home opener, before losing back to back home games against the Bills and the Dolphins. Atlanta is coming off a three game losing streak.
The Falcons have seen Matt Ryan, who won the MVP a season ago struggle a bit this season. The quarterback has a QBR of 59.5 on the season, and has thrown just 11 touchdowns. Julio Jones, his top target has been into the end zone just one time this season. The Falcons are scoring just 21.3 points per game, and in all four of their losses – they have scored 17 points or less.
Cowboys Down Falcons
The Dallas Cowboys are the defending NFC East Champions, but are going to have a tough time repeating this season. The Cowboys do get a chance to play the Philadelphia Eagles twice in the final few week of the season, but they are behind the eight ball. The Cowboys need a win here if they are going to keep their divisional chances alive.
Look for both teams to play well, but in the end, the team that wins is the better defense. That’s the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are going to keep the Atlanta offense struggling, and a defensive stop is going to be the biggest key in this game. When you are betting on this National Football League take the Dallas Cowboys on the road. The Dallas Cowboys+3.5 is the bet to make here. Bet on the Dallas Cowboys +3.5 at MyBookie.
