It’s certainly not the easiest thing to trust the Cowboys these days but the Lions on the road have been a disaster for as long as I have been alive and after seeing Dallas finally man up in New York last week against what was the best team in football I will take my chances on what appears to be a bit of a cheap lay here.
Matthew Stafford is out with that shoulder once again and therefore Shawn Hill is expected to get the start. I don’t hate Hill at all as the guy is not bad and at least serviceable. But on the road Hill doesn’t exactly scare many and even if Jon Kitna is old and not what he used to be the signal caller still looked good last week and should be properly motivated here against a former team.
Felix Jones should be able to have a big game running the ball against Ndamakong Suh and the Lions defense and Dez Bryant is proving to be a great rookie and a guy who can make plays with the best of them. Throw in Miles Austin and a few other guys who need to always be accounted for at all times and in Jerry’s Playground I just do not see the Pokes doing anything but playing solid enough football today and fully outclassing what is still a well inferior team on the road without its young stud quarterback.
Top expert pick: Dallas Cowboys from Matt Rivers
For more information: It certainly was an underachieving Saturday, there are no two ways about it. Absolutely nothing at all went my way. Unfortunately in this racket days like that will happen but it won’t come close to shaking my confidence as this very successful season will be just that today in another winning NFL Sunday. A pair of plays on the NFL gridiron with the big one coming by the bay in a 400,000* between Tampa Bay and San Francisco. Bonus 200,000* involving Washington and Tennessee. Click now to purchase
