You always know who they are, even when they have a down year because their fans, won’t let you forget them. Earning themselves the nickname, America’s team only seemed fitting. However, on their up year’s, the Dallas Cowboys are always the talk of the town.
In a position to clinch the NFC East title last week in Indianapolis, the Cowboys, who were 3 point underdogs in that matchup were shutout. Yes you read that right, 23-0 and not one single point scored for the Cowboys.
The last time the Cowboys were shutout was 2003 against the New England Patriots. Quincy Carter was their quarterback and threw three interceptions. The number one movie was Elf and the number one song was Baby Boy by Beyonce.
Despite the shutout and the loss, the Cowboys still had a chance to clinch the NFC East title with losses from the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles. However, the Redskins won by a field goal and Nick Foles stole the show in Los Angeles on Sunday Night Football.
But don’t jump off the Cowboy train just yet as they’ll return home to Arlington to host the struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With the spread opening at 7 points in favor of the Cowboys, it makes America’s team another home favorite for this week.
The Buccaneers, who have scored just 26 points over their past two weeks will get a tough road matchup against a team who’s not only 5-2 at home but 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 games.
Though, if you re-read the last sentence above, you’ll understand that the Cowboys aren’t just a one week wonder in the betting market for week 16. But they’re going to be a popular bet moving forward and into the playoffs as they’ve already made bettors very profitable with wins over the Saints and the Eagles over the past few weeks.
So, keep your eye out for the Cowboys moving forward and just tune out their fans in the meantime.
