Dallas Cowboys NFL Betting

The Dallas Cowboys may not be able to run down the Philadelphia Eagles by the end of the season, but they are very likely to make the playoffs after beating the New York Giants for the second time last week. Dallas now holds the tiebreaker against the G Men, and the Cowboys will hold a tiebreaker edge over most NFC teams with their conference-best seven wins against conference opponents. They will now face AFC opponents for four of the next five weeks including this week when they take on the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, the Dallas Cowboys will host the Indianapolis Colts at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas with kickoff coming at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC.

Dallas Cowboys Week 13 Matchup

Indianapolis is coming off a tough loss to Pittsburgh on Monday Night Football. The Colts now have just a slim chance of catching the Tennessee Titans for first place in the AFC South, as they have only beaten one team with a winning record all year.

Matt Ryan hasn’t been the game changer the Colts were hoping for when they acquired him in the offseason. He is completing 68.8% of his passes, but he is averaging just 6.8 YPA with 11 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Additionally, Ryan is a statue in the pocket, and that has led to him being sacked 32 times in 10 games. This offensive line has been a major disappointment, allowing a total of 43 sacks in 12 games, and Jonathan Taylor has only run for 779 yards and four touchdowns. Between Ryan and Taylor, the Colts have lost five fumbles too.

There’s no defense better at playing from ahead than Dallas. The Cowboys are allowing just 17.0 PPG (2nd in the NFL), and they have the best pass defense in the NFL.

Opponents are averaging just 5.7 YPA and 177.7 YPG through the air, and the Cowboys rank first in sack percentage too. Dallas has 45 sacks in 11 games.

Dak Prescott is playing very well behind an excellent offensive line. Prescott is completing 68.1% of his passes for 1,393 yards (7.7 YPA) with 10 touchdowns and six interceptions. He and Cooper Rush have only been sacked 14 times in 11 games, and star left tackle Tyron Smith is expected to return soon to help out the big boys up front.

Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott are a very good one-two punch in the backfield, combining to run for 1,338 yards and 13 touchdowns. CeeDee Lamb has 64 receptions for 857 yards and five touchdowns, but no other receiver has more than 400 yards.

The Colts have a pretty good defense, ranking 11th in scoring defense (20.3 PPG) and sixth in total defense (308.9 YPG). They do a good job stopping the run with DeForest Buckner and Grover Stewart up front, but they might be without starting cornerback Kenny Moore after he was injured against Pittsburgh on Monday Night Football.

Dallas Cowboys Week 12 Recap

It took some time for the Dallas Cowboys’ offense to get going on Thanksgiving, but they eventually turned it on in the second half on their way to a 28-20 victory over the New York Giants. The Cowboys stuck to their guns with the ground game and it paid dividends after halftime. Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard combined to carry the ball 34 times for 152 yards and a touchdown as Dallas had over 34 minutes of possession.

Dak Prescott completed 21 of 30 passes for 261 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in the win. CeeDee Lamb had six receptions for 106 yards, and Michael Gallup caught five passes for 63 yards. Dalton Schultz caught both TD passes from Prescott in the win. On the other side of the ball, Micah Parsons continued his push to be named NFL Defensive Player of the Year with two sacks against the Giants.

Daniel Jones completed 21 of 35 passes for 228 yards and a touchdown in the loss. Richie James had five receptions for 41 yards and caught the TD, while Darius Slayton caught a 44-yard bomb for the Giants’ longest play from scrimmage. Saquon Barkley was largely held in check with 15 touches for 52 yards and a TD.

Few teams can match the rich history of the Dallas Cowboys. Especially when you consider that the Cowboys were born as a nuclear weapon. In 1960 the American Football League was formed by Dallas resident Lamar Hunt. Hunt founded the league and its franchise, the Dallas Texans because the NFL would not grant him an expansion team. However, once the AFL and the Texans were launched, the NFL expanded to Dallas. The Cowboys were created to destroy the AFL and the Texans.

From 1960 through 1965, the Cowboys never had a winning season. But starting in 1966, the Cowboys became the most successful franchise in the NFL. From 1966 through 1985, the Cowboys missed the NFL Playoffs just two times. Dallas won two Super Bowls in that span out of five appearances. President Tex Schramm, scout Gil Brandt, coach Tom Landry, and quarterbacks Don Meredith and Rodger Staubach were the key contributors to those Glory Years. So too was the Doomsday Defense the stuff of legends in those days.

But by 1989, the Cowboys ran out of steam and money. Jerry Jones bought the franchise and hired Jimmy Johnson as head coach. After going 1-15 in 1989, the Cowboys were Super Bowl champions in 1992 and 1993. After Johnson left in an ego struggle with Jones, caretaker coach Barry Switzer led Dallas to their last Super Bowl title in 1995.

Jerry Jones has made the Cowboys the most valuable franchise in sports. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame because of his dynamic business ability. But as much as Jones wants it, he still gets no credit for his football acumen nor deserves it. Dallas has never made a Super Bowl without a Jimmy Johnson-constructed team.
