Cowboys have Struggled Against Winning Teams
The Cowboys have won three of their last four games, but few people are convinced that this team is among the top teams in the NFC. The Cowboys have consistently struggled against winning teams this season and that’s a concern as they go on the road to challenge the Patriots, who are 9-1.
The Cowboys' six wins have come against the New York Giants (twice), Washington Redskins, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles and Detroit Lions. None of those teams have a winning record. Even some of those wins have been by narrow margins – including last week’s win over the Jeff Driskel-led Lions.

The Cowboys have had a tendency to start slow in games, as they’ve trailed by at least six points in the first half in six of their last seven games. They often look like they’re unprepared early on, which will have to change if they want to contend on Sunday.
Injuries will Impact Sunday’s Affair
Both teams will have some key players sidelined on Sunday. The Cowboys will be without linebacker Leighton Vander Esch, while tackle La’el Collins and wideout Amari Cooper will play but both will be less than 100%. Cooper played only 55% of snaps last week, so the knee injury is clearly bothering him.
Meanwhile, the Patriots have some concerns of their own. Quarterback Tom Brady popped up on the injury report late in the week with an elbow ailment, but is expected to play. His wide receiving corps will be thinned out, though, as Mohammed Sanu is out and Phillip Dorsett is likely out too.

The Patriots offense has labored this season as their 21-spot difference in the rankings from points per game (No. 3) to yards-per-play (No. 24) illustrates why looking at traditional stats can be misleading. Their defense has helped them a lot. If Brady is banged up and key wideouts are out, they’ll struggle again.
What’s the Best Bet?
In terms of the point spread, this just feels like a game where the Patriots will find a way. They have the better team, the better coach, the better defense and home-field advantage. Their opponent also usually fails when stepping up in competition.
Will Dak Prescott and the @dallascowboys get a win in Foxborough, or will Tom Brady and the @patriots continue to march towards the AFC's top seed?

At the same time, the best bet for this contest might be the under. The Patriots defense should do their part, which means we might not see many points from Dallas. As for the Patriots offense, with Brady banged up and key receivers out, under might make a lot of sense here – especially since rain is expected throughout the game.
