Monday Night Football will bring a great game between the Cowboys and the Lions. It took only one loss after an 11-game winning streak for questions to pop up about the Dallas Cowboys, specifically quarterback Dak Prescott. The NFL rumor mill began after people were asking to start Tony Romo in his place. Fans can rest easy knowing that Prescott will still be starting against the Lions. With Detriot Qb still not looking 100% after his finger injury, we think Prescott and the Cowboys will secure their bye for the Playoffs with a defeat over the lions by 6 points.
Lions vs. Cowboys Score Prediction: Lions 21, Cowboys 27
After a loss to the Giants, only their second of the season, the Cowboys bounced back with a win last Sunday night. However, Tampa gave Dallas a good fight, and the Cowboys are definitely looking more vulnerable.
Dak Prescott also had a nice game last week, bouncing back after some calls started the NFL gossip ring asking for Tony Romo to take the starting job. The rookie answered in a big way, however, as he led Dallas to victory by completing nearly 89 percent of his passes and rushing for a touchdown. So it looks like no one can expect to see any NFL roster moves for Dallas.
Neither team has a ton to play for, to be honest. Dallas has the division, and a bye essentially if not officially secured. Detroit’s season comes down to beating the Packers in their season finale.
The Lions have lost a couple games in a row, and they have been punching above their weight all season. The latest NFL news for Detroit showed that quarterback Matthew Stafford was seemingly out of rhythm while dealing with a finger ailment, and the Lions offense is in serious trouble if he isn’t at his best. The defense remains strong, holding eight straight opponents to 20 points or less, but this is a one-dimensional offense that struggles when quarterback Matthew Stafford is not at his best.
The Cowboys have seemingly regained any momentum they lost when they fell to the Giants, and they’ll use that to claim a victory over Detroit. Our NFL score prediction is 27-21 favoring the Cowboys.
