Michael Vu, Staff Writer: Never, ever, ever, underestimate Andy Reid. This has signs of a chess match, and the Cowboys will struggle (again) in the red zone. Ultimately, Dallas wins 23 – 17.
Jeff Magnia, Senior Writer: I have been ripped for my bold prediction from my latest article but I stick to it. IF the offense is on and we are moving the ball at will, it will be 34-7 Cowboys. If not, they will still win it 35-34.
John Bankston, Staff Writer: Alex Smith doesn’t have the big arm to exploit coverage breakdowns, so Kiffin’s bend-but-don’t-break defense forces a field goal fest. Callahan’s offense is still a few weeks away from clicking on all cylinders. This game comes down to turnovers and special teams; I’ll go with the hot hand in both: Cowboys win 27-19.
Michael Huff, Senior Writer: Dallas is in for a long day defending the Chiefs run and short passing game. The quick nature of these plays negates the Cowboys pass rush. Cowboys squeak by 24-21.
