Maybe the referees had it out for them or maybe Dallas just laid an egg, but either way the Cowboys did not look like themselves in a 36-33 loss to the Raiders on Thanksgiving. Now Mike McCarthy’s team gets another Thursday game when they visit New Orleans in week 13.
The Saints also played on Thanksgiving, and looked even worse than Dallas in a 31-6 trouncing at home at the hands of the Buffalo Bills. That has pushed the New Orleans’ losing streak to four games, and astonishingly they are still just a game back for the final NFC wild card.
Dallas did a great job of forcing OT on Thursday vs. Las Vegas, but they were at home in a game they were supposed to dominate as -7 point favorites. Not necessarily because the Cowboys were playing well, but because the Raiders came in on a three game losing streak.
Over the Raiders’ three game skid they didn’t score over 16 points in losses to the Giants (23-16), Chiefs (41-14), or Bengals (32-13). It obviously raises some series concerns for the Dallas defense that LV was able rack up 509 yards and 36 points.
Luckily for the Cowboys they’re playing a Saints team that looked atrocious on Thursday as they managed just one late TD pass. Dallas is also just 1-3 over their last four games however.
Dak Prescott ended up 32/47 for 375 yards and 2 TD vs. the Raiders and might be able to have success against a New Orleans defense that allowed Josh Allen to complete 23 of 28 passes on Thursday with 4 TDs.
New Orleans Saints
It’s going to likely be Prescott and the Dallas passing offense that will have to beat New Orleans on Thursday, because the Cowboys have abandoned the running game with Zeke Elliott getting just 9 carries each of the last two games.
The Bills ran for 113 on the Saints in the Thanksgiving night win, but overall New Orleans has a #3 run defense in the NFL (91.9 ppg). Then again the Eagles ran for 242 yards in their 40-21 win over the Saints in week 11 so maybe that run defense is starting to wane a bit.
If Prescott, or even Elliott for that matter, can get going on Thursday do the Saints have the offense to keep up? They had scored at least 21 through the first three losses of their current streak, but managed just 6 points and 190 total yards vs. Buffalo.

4* Free Week 13 NFL Betting Prediction: Cowboys -4.5
It looks like the four game skid is starting to get to the Saints. They kept it close with two point losses to Atlanta and Tennessee, but over the past two games have been blown out by 11 against the Eagles and 25 vs. the Bills.
The Saints are still in the playoff hunt though, and Dallas hasn’t exactly impressed with losses in three of their last four. Ultimately though, you have to trust the more talented Cowboys to come through in this one.
If the Cowboys lose this one their may be rumors of McCarthy losing his job even with Dallas in 1st in the NFC East.
