There was a lot of hype surround the Lions (1-4) entering the season because of Hard Knocks and head coach Dan Campbell. That confidence has wavered a bit after the rough start. The discouraging part is that quarterback Jared Goff and the offense are averaging 28 points per game, but the defense is giving up 34 points per game. A 48-45 loss to the Seahawks, they had scored 140 points and given up 141 through four weeks. Coming off a bye week, Campbell will need to turn it around before he loses the locker room.
The Cowboys (4-2) found a way to stay afloat with Cooper Rush at quarterback with starter Dak Prescott was out with a thumb injury. They got back to running the football, and playing defense which takes a lot of the pressure of the quarterback. The defense, led my Micah Parsons and Demarcus Lawrence, has held opposing teams to 16 points per game. Prescott is anticipated to be back this week, and all eyes will be on him give the offense some juice.
The Lions are a +7 point underdog entering Sunday’s contest and a +255 on the moneyline according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
