The Ravens enter tonight’s battle rather meek after dropping the second of two meetings against the Pittsburgh Steelers last Sunday afternoon. The loss snapped the Ravens three game winning streak both SU and ATS. After thoroughly dominating the Washington Redskins the week before on NBC’s Sunday night telecast, it looked as if they were going to cruise to yet another comfy home win and cover through three quarters of play. That said; the never say die Steelers rallied for 10 unanswered points in the 4th quarter to pull off the impressive road win and cover. The major media outlets are still second guessing the catch WR Santonio Holmes hauled in for the go ahead score in the closing moments, but the final has been etched in the record books forever and Baltimore must move on.

With the loss, all Baltimore can settle for now is a wildcard spot.

As for Dallas, it came up with a huge win on Sunday night over NFC East leading New York to hold onto its wildcard positioning. QB Tony Romo bounced back from his frustrating outing at Pittsburgh with a fabulous effort against the Giants. He ended up completing 20 of 30 passes for 244 yards with a pair of TD strikes. RB Tashard Choice had another big game filling in for the injured Marion Barber who battled his injury all game long. Choice has now gained a total of 309 yards combined the last two weeks, and he scored his first TD at this level after busting a 38-yard run to seal the deal against the Giants.
Since head coach Wade Phillips took over the playcalling for the defense, it’s responded very nicely. The stop unit was in QB Eli Manning’s face all game long sacking him a total of eight times while forcing a pair of interceptions. When the dust cleared, NY gained a total of 218 overall yards and converted just 3 of 13 3rd down opportunities.

Dallas controls its own destiny right now for a wildcard slot.

It’s been 4+ years since these teams have met. The Kyle Boller (remember him?) led Ravens defeated the Cowboys by a 30-10 final count as 7.5-point home favorites that day. Baltimore enters this Week 16 NFL betting tilt 7-2 SU & ATS its L/9 overall games, but it’s a poor 5-10 ATS the L/15 times its played the role of visitor.
