Only 3 teams have a better record than Dallas. Had we not blown the Seattle game, to which I attribute poor play by the Defense, Special Teams and Offense, we would already be in the elite. But now we have a second chance: beat 8-2 Denver to go to 8-3. Then they only have to win 2 of their remaining 5 games for a playoff spot. Lose and nobody will take them seriously. Denver outscores opponents by an average score of 29-14 at home, but their average score is only 21-21 on the road. Dallas meanwhile has never allowed more than 14 at home, where their average score is a 23-11 win. The odds suggest this game will end Dallas 22, Denver 16.
