Patriots’ Top Offense Favored by Touchdown Over Struggling Cowboys


Tony Romo and the Cowboys look to get back on track after a bye last week and surrendering a 24-point lead to the Lions two weeks ago. They will have their hands full as they battle an explosive Patriots offense that scores the second-most points in the league.

That explosive offense is the reason the Patriots are favored by seven points on Sunday. Quarterback Tom Brady is averaging a league-high 374.8 passing yards per game, and Wes Welker leads all receivers in receptions (45) and yards per game (148).

The line would perhaps be higher if not for the Patriots' struggling defense, which allows a 433 yards per game, most in the NFL.

Uncertainty remains as to which Tony Romo will show up for the Cowboys: the one who leads fourth quarter comebacks or the one who squanders fourth quarter leads with costly interceptions.

The Vegas books certainly think this will be a high scoring game. The over/under is set at 56 points.
