The Detroit Lions will play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

The Detroit Lions are 1-4 this season after they lost to New England by a score of 29-0 in their last game. Detroit turned the ball over twice and went 0-6 on fourth down attempts in the loss. The Detroit offense is averaging 28 points per game with 260.4 passing yards per game and 151.4 rushing yards per game. Jared Goff has thrown for 1,355 yards, 11 touchdowns, and four interceptions for the Lions this season. Jamaal Williams has rushed for 332 yards and six scores, while Josh Reynolds (questionable) has caught 23 passes for 335 yards and two touchdowns for Detroit. The Detroit defense is giving up 34 points per game and 428.6 yards per game.

The Dallas Cowboys are 4-2 this season after they lost to Philadelphia by a score of 26-17 in their last game. Dallas out gained Philadelphia by a total of 315-268, but turned the ball over three times in the loss. The Dallas offense is averaging 18.3 points per game with 182 passing yards per game and 118.8 rushing yards per game. Dak Prescott is expected to be back for the Cowboys and he has thrown for 134 yards and one interception this season. Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for 386 yards and two touchdowns, while CeeDee Lamb has caught 33 passes for 409 yards and two scores for Dallas. The Dallas defense is allowing 16.3 points per game and 304.2 yards per game.

Detroit is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against the NFC and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 October games. The over is 6-1 in Detroit’s last 7 games. Dallas is 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games against the NFC and 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games. The under is 5-0 in Dallas’ last 5 home games. The over is 8-1 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.

Dallas will be getting Dak Prescott back in this game, but Cooper Rush played pretty well given the circumstances over the last few weeks. Detroit is coming off of a bye week, but New England blew them out before that. Detroit should get some players back from injury, but it won’t help their really bad defense. I like the over here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
