The Dallas Cowboys will try to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they visit the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST kickoff the game shapes up as one of the more interesting match-ups of Week 14.
So who is favored in the game between the Cowboys and Bengals? The Bengals are 3 point favorites in Sunday’s game against Dallas. The over/under is set at 45.5 points.
The Bengals are currently on a four game win streak which has moved them to 7-5 and in one of the AFC’s Wild Card spots. Quarterback Andy Dalton has taken a step forward following a productive rookie season and the Bengals defense is one of the more complete units in the league ranking 11th against the run and pass and allow 21.7 points per game.
As Dez Bryant goes so do the Cowboys it seems. Bryant had quite a game last week against Philadelphia but the Cowboys will need more of that this week against the Bengals. Their running game has moved up to 30th overall as they average 82.4 yards per game on the ground. Defensively teh Cowboys have been ravished by injuries losing inside linebackers Sean Lee and Tyrone Carter.
