Week 15: Cowboys @ Bills
Earlier in the season, this one felt like a daunting game. The Buffalo Bills have been Super Bowl favorites for several years and were again supposed to make a run. That hasn't been the case as they fell to .500 with a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12.
In addition to falling to 6-6, the Bills were unable to do the Cowboys a favor and knock the Eagles down a peg. They had a shot since they were leading late after a fourth-quarter touchdown drive but then the defense allowed them to get into range for an insane field goal to tie it.
They then went ultra-conservative and took a knee with 20 seconds to play — which makes no sense considering they’ve seen opponents score on them with 13 seconds to go. By playing for overtime, the Bills wound up losing. While a win there would have helped Dallas, the loss reminds us that this team is very beatable this season.
Dallas is being criticized for not winning against talented teams and servicing a victory over the Bills, in Buffalo nonetheless, should get them a little more respect. Then again, the critics will probably also say the Bills are no longer Super Bowl contenders so that won’t matter.
Either way, the defense will feast considering how often Josh Allen throws the ball up for grabs and Dak Prescott is going to find openings to throw the ball. The weather will play a factor as it stays close, but the Cowboys still get the W.
Score Prediction: Cowboys 30, Bills 24
