The Dallas Cowboys will head to California this weekend to face the Oakland Raiders in a very important Week 15 matchup.
The Dallas Cowboys will take an important trip out west to face the Oakland Raiders this Sunday. Coming off two back-to-back victories, Dallas is hoping to extend it’s winning streak in Week 15 against the struggling Raiders and to keep their playoff hopes alive.
For the 7-6 Cowboys, they need to be focused on playing the team in front of them instead of looking ahead. Just a year ago, the Raiders finished the season with a 12-4 and they were considered one of the best teams in the NFL. Dallas is one game away from getting running back Ezekiel Elliott back from suspension. But a loss to the Raiders would all but end the Cowboys postseason hopes.

For the 6-7 Raiders, who have split their past four games, they are still somehow alive in their own playoff race in the AFC. But Oakland’s final two games will be on the road, against two NFC juggernauts in the 11-2 Philadelphia Eagles and the 9-4 Los Angeles Rams.
