The past couple of weeks were rough for the Dallas Cowboys. They went on a road trip through the AFC East and suffered losses to the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins. Buffalo made it look easy as they ran Dallas out of the building whereas Miami needed a last-second field goal to pull out the win.
Now at 10-5, the Cowboys are still trying to figure out why they can't get it done on the road. All five of their losses have come away from AT&T Stadium and while they're back there to host the Detroit Lions in Week 17, they have to figure this out since they'll be hitting the road in the postseason.
They're not going to be able to work on that this weekend but they can still get back in the win column. It won't be easy since the Lions come in at 11-4 but the Cowboys can pull it off, especially if these three bold predictions come true.
3. Micah Parsons records two sacks
Defending Micah Parsons has unfortunately become too easy as of late. All teams have to do is hold him and it's clear the officials won't be throwing the flag. Despite plenty of evidence that he's been held, Parsons has gone an insane 38 quarters without drawing a flag.
Hopefully, the spotlight being shined on this will lead to at least one penalty being thrown on the Lions. If that happens, they'll have to adjust which means — trying to block Parsons within the rules. That's not possible to do through an entire game which is why this first bold prediction has No. 11 in the backfield with at least two sacks on Jared Goff.
