Featured game | Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys

If you’re looking to bet on the Cowboys-Bucs, you’d better see what SportsLine Senior Analyst Larry Hartstein thinks about the showdown. On top of going into the 2022 NFL season 427-344 all-time in NFL draft picks (plus $3,764 for $100 players), Hartstein is 15-3 (+1,170) in his last 18 draft picks involving the Cowboys, meaning he’s uniquely eligible. To do that. This check. We can tell you it tilts more than the total, but to see its pick against the spread, you have to go to SportsLine.

The Cowboys usually wait until the postseason breaks up, but this year, it looks like they started things a little early. Dallas has lost two of their last four regular season games and the big reason that happened is because Dak Prescott had apparently forgotten how to play ball. foot.

Since coming back from his right thumb injury in Week 7, Prescott hasn’t been the same quarterback and although you’d think he’d slowly get better each week, that wasn’t the case. He threw 11 interceptions, which is more than any other QB in the league American football during that period.

With those 11 interceptions, Prescott finished tied for the NFL lead with 15 picks on the season, which I only point to because it makes him the first QB in NFL history to miss at least five games and still lead the league in interceptions that exists. With “who can eat the most tubs of butter in 90 seconds” on the list of records you don’t ever want to break.

Basically, on one side of this game, you have a quarterback who can’t stop throwing interceptions and on the other side, you have the most successful NFL quarterback of all time: Tom Brady. If Brady had picked his team up as an opponent for the wild card round I think he would have picked the Cowboys and that’s mainly because if there’s one team the Bucks are very confident of beating, it’s Dallas. For example, the Buccaneers have already beaten the Cowboys this season, and secondly, Brady has never lost to the Cowboys in his career. Professional (7-0).

Also, this game is being played in Tampa Bay, which is notable, because they have a grass court in Tampa and Dallas tend to struggle on grass for some reason. The Cowboys have played five games on grass this season and they’ve gone 1-4 in those games, losing to Eagles, Chiefs, Jaguars, Packers, and their only win came against a Titans team that had to start quarterback (Josh Dobbs) who’d only been on the roster for nine days.Even then, the Cowboys still had a hard time putting Tennessee down (the game was 17-13 in the fourth quarter). From a defensive standpoint, the Cowboys have surrendered an average of 27.2 points in their five games played on grass.Not played on grass, the Cowboys have only lost 17.1 points per game, which is a huge 10.1 point difference.

“On paper, this game looks like a mismatch, but Tom Brady doesn’t believe in paper so I’m going to ignore the talent disparity and go with the team I trust the most now which is the Buccaneers.” — CBS Sports NFL writer John Breech on why he likes the Bucs to upset the Cowboys, 20-17.
