Week Eleven: Dallas Cowboys at Kansas City Chiefs

This will be the Cowboys’ toughest test of the season. They go on the road to Kansas City to take on Patrick Mahomes and the two-time defending AFC champion Chiefs.

This will also be the first matchup between Dak Prescott and Mahomes. Two of the league’s most high-powered offenses should make for a fantastic matchup.

But, Tyreek Hill proves to be too much of a problem for Dallas. Hill goes for over 150 yards receiving and the Cowboys lose their second straight.

Cheifs 34- Cowboys 28

Record: 7-3

Week Twelve: Las Vegas Raiders at Dallas Cowboys

The annual Thanksgiving day showdown takes place between two of the league’s most popular teams. After losing two in a row the Cowboys looks to get back on track against a struggling Raiders team.

The Cowboys offense explodes for their first 40 point game of the season and a late interception from rookie cornerback, Kelvin Joseph, ends any hope of a Raiders comeback.

Cowboys 41- Raiders 32

Record: 8-3

Week Thirteen: Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints

Thursday Night Football one week after Thanksgiving, the Cowboys head to the Superdome to take on the Saints. Both teams will be coming off Thanksgiving games so the rest will be equal.

With Drew Brees finally retiring, either Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill will be under center for New Orleans. In a back and forth game, a late strip-sack by DeMarcus Lawrence seals the game for Dallas.

Cowboys 26- Saints 24

Record: 9-3

Week Fourteen: Dallas Cowboys at Washington Football Team

Washington has a stout defense but their offense particularly their quarterback remains a big question. It appears they will go will journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick this season.

Going undefeated in the division is always a tough task and I see the Cowboys’ first division loss coming on the road in Washington. “Fitzmagic” plays one of his best games of the season as the Football Team upsets the Cowboys.

Washington 23- Cowboys 21

Record: 9-4
