The Texans (1-10-1) fell to the Cleveland Browns 27-14 in Week 14, and face one of the NFL’s best defenses next on the docket. Not to say Kyle Allen is deserving of another start at quarterback, but the 26-year-old salvaged his day by connecting with Houston’s No. 1 receiver Nico Collins on a touchdown before the conclusion of an unsatisfactory day. Deshaun Watson, as expected, had a rocky start in his first appearance since January 3, 2021, against the Texans’ defense. The skilled QB completed just 12-of-22 passes for 131 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception, but the team has a much tougher task this week against an offense that is clicking on all cylinders.
Dallas put up a whopping 54 points on the Indianapolis Colts last week, improving to 9-3. Dak Prescott and Co. amassed 385 total yards, while the running game looked superior once again thanks to a powerful tandem of Tony Pollard and Ezekiel Elliott.
The Cowboys are set as 17-point favorites to get the win at home, priced at -1800 on the moneyline at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Texans sit at +950, while the total score is set at 44.5.
