The Cowboys community holds their breath, as Dallas faces yet another game where we find out if they can rebound or if this is eerily similar to past seasons.

Back to square one. For the second time in three weeks, the Cowboys have us holding our breath, hoping that last week’s loss was another fluke game. This team seems different, better than we ever could have expected, but they are back in “prove it” territory.

After the Broncos’ loss, the Dallas Cowboys were gifted a “get right” matchup with the Atlanta Falcons, and the Los Vegas Raiders are similarly a team that Dallas should beat. But whether it be a history of bad Thanksgiving performances or the scars from previous years, this game is scary. So, what should we expect?

If you believe the oddsmakers, like our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook, the Cowboys are healthy 7.5-point favorites. But teams don’t win on paper or in the sportsbooks, so let’s dig in to our Thanksgiving feast.
