Dallas Cowboys: 3 bold predictions for the offense in Week 13 vs. Bills
The Dallas Cowboys will be playing their annual Thanksgiving Day game against the Buffalo Bills. This is an absolute must-win game for Dallas. They are currently 6-5 with a slim one-game lead in the NFC East.
In Week 12, the Cowboys’ offense could not get anything going. They picked up a gut-wrenching loss to the New England Patriots in a game where they only scored nine points. It is up to their offense to make the necessary adjustments heading into this game on a short week. Here are three bold predictions for the Cowboys offense against the Bills.
3. No Turnovers
Dak Prescott turned it over once against the Patriots. It was the Cowboys’ only turnover of the game. On Thanksgiving, they will need to take care of the ball. The Bills have forced 15 fumbles this season and have intercepted opposing quarterbacks seven times. They are not a team that turns their opponents over much.
The Cowboys will take their home field as favorites and cannot give the Bills any extra opportunities. They also cannot put their defense in any tough positions. Dallas’ defense has been strong, so their offense will need to be just as good to pick up a win.
2. One Receiver Scores Twice
The Cowboys have three receivers with more than 500 yards. They have been one of the best offenses in the league production-wise. Dallas currently ranks first in total offense and first in passing yards per game with 303.5.
One receiver on the Cowboys will get in the end zone twice. The likely candidate is Amari Cooper, who has scored seven times this season. Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb have both proved that they are valuable weapons on this team. The Cowboys will need to score points to win this game, and getting a receiver to score twice will go a long way.
1. Cowboys Rush for 150 Yards
Ezekiel Elliot is currently seventh in the NFL with 919 yards on the season. The Cowboys will need to establish the run game early in this game. The Bills’ defense is vulnerable to the run game, and this is a way the Cowboys can gain control of the game.
Getting Elliott going early will make things easier for Prescott, as well. Elliott will get a bulk of the work, but Tony Pollard and Prescott will both get some rushing yards of their own. Between the three rushers, the Cowboys have a chance to eclipse 150 yards in this game.
