Tight NFC East Playoff Race Favors Dallas Cowboys

A win by Dallas gives them a 2-game lead over the defending division and Super Bowl champion Eagles, and the [...]

Philadelphia let me down big time when scoring just 7 points last week to keep my Week 11 “Top Play” UNDER the [...]

Week 12 Thanksgiving Football Betting – WAS vs. DAL -7.5

It’s impossible to downplay the Week 12 Thanksgiving Football betting battle between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys. With a victory, Dallas could tie Washington atop the division.

Jerry Jones then made the biggest sin of all, trading a Round 1 pick for an underachieving wide [...]
