Sunday NFL Action: Dallas Cowboys vs. Kansas City Chiefs - Week 9

In one of the best games of the day in the National Football League; the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. Both these teams have postseason aspirations, and both feel like they could make a run at the 2018 Super Bowl.

The Dallas Cowboys come into this game as a 2 point favorite at home over the Chiefs.

Cowboys Surging

The ongoing drama with Ezekiel Elliott continues, and this time he is set to play in this game. The running back has been red hot with dominating games against the 49ers and Redskins over the last two weeks. Elliott needs just 10 yards to reach 700 on the ground this season, with 6 touchdowns. The Cowboys as a team are scoring 28.3 points per game, led by their run game with 150 yards per game.

Defensively Dallas is allowing teams to score 23 points per game. The Cowboys defense allowed 61 points in back to back games against the Rams and Packers, but have bounced back with just 29 allowed the last two weeks. Dallas will go to Atlanta next week, and then come home and host the Philadelphia Eagles in a massive divisional game in Week 11.

Chiefs Looking to Keep Winning

The Kansas City Chiefs needed the win last week, and they got it. Kansas City scored 29 points and put their top rival, the Denver Broncos even further behind in the standings. Kansas City has scored 236 points this season, which ranks 3rd in all of the National Football League. The passing game is 6th in the league, while the rushing game comes in at 11th, with 122.8 yards per game.

The Chiefs top offensive threats have been Kareem Hunt and Tyreke Hill. But, Travis Kelce is quietly putting together a great season as the leading receiver. The tight end has 44 receptions with 556 yards and 4 touchdowns. The CHiefs will not play next week, as they have a Week 10 bye. Following that, the Chiefs take on the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills to wrap up November.

Cowboys Beat Chiefs

While the point spread is pretty low, the Kansas City Chiefs are not going to win this game. The Dallas Cowboys have their running back, and are playing some great football right now. The Cowboys have turned into one of the best offensive teams in all of the National Football League. Look for the Cowboys to put points on the board early and often against a challenged Kansas City defense.
