The Cowboys have already clinched a playoff spot, but after last week’s 10-7 loss to the New York Giants (+4.5 away), the NFC East is still up for grabs. There’s talk about Tony Romo perhaps replacing Dak Prescott at quarterback, although Prescott is expected to start against Tampa Bay after the Giants held him to 165 yards passing with two picks.
The Bucs, meanwhile, have to be pleased with the performance of sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston. He’s on the verge of becoming a Top-10 quarterback in the NFL, his teammates respect him, and he’s has thrown just three interceptions during Tampa’s five-game winning streak. The rushing attack, on the other hand, is one of the worst in the league at just 3.5 yards per carry. The Cowboys are second overall at 4.8 yards.
NFL Odds: Cowboys Host Red-Hot Bucs on SNFThe Dallas Cowboys (11-2 SU, 9-4 ATS) have already sewn up a playoff spot, and they may get to clinch the NFC East if they beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-5 SU and ATS) on Sunday Night Football. NBC has the television coverage starting at 8:30 PM ET.
The Bucs have won five straight games straight up and against the spread to put themselves in Wild Card position with an added shot at the NFC South title. But they have a point differential of minus-3 on the season, and they’re 7-point underdogs for Sunday’s matchup with a total of 46.5.
