What to Know
The Dallas Cowboys have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the New England Patriots at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The Cowboys know how to get points on the board -- the team has finished with flashy point totals in its past three matchups -- so hopefully New England likes a good challenge.
A well-balanced attack led Dallas over the New York Giants every single quarter on their way to victory last week. Dallas took their matchup against New York by a conclusive 44-20 score. Among those leading the charge for Dallas was RB Ezekiel Elliott, who rushed for one TD and 110 yards on 21 carries in addition to snatching one receiving TD.
Special teams collected 14 points for Dallas. K Greg Zuerlein delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
Meanwhile, the Patriots narrowly escaped with a win as the squad sidled past the Houston Texans 25-22. No one had a standout game offensively for New England, but they got scores from RB Damien Harris and TE Hunter Henry. QB Mac Jones ended up with a passer rating of 145.70.
Most of the squad's points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed 13. K Nick Folk booted in four field goals, the longest a 52-yarder in the second quarter, which ultimately accounted for the difference in the contest.
Dallas is the favorite in this one, with an expected 3.5-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a five-game streak of ATS wins.
The wins brought Dallas up to 4-1 and New England to 2-3. The Cowboys are 3-0 after wins this year, the Patriots 0-1.
