Thursday Night Football

December 1, 2016

After 5 games of the NFL season, the Minnesota Vikings had a (5-0) record. Tonight they take a mere (6-5) record, into their home tilt with the Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas has won 10 straight games, after losing their opening game at home to the New York Giants, by one point.

In all likelihood, only the (8-3) Giants have a realistic chance to keep the Cowboys, deemed a non playoff team when Tony Romo was injured, from being the NFC one seed.

However with Dak Prescott at quarterback, Dallas which no covered “Wash” last Thursday, has been obviously most impressive with rookie Ez Elliott, leading the way, a superb offensive line doing the same for him.

Tonight the Cowboys are 3 point favorites and I just hope it is Al Michaels and not Mike Tirico as the lead announcer although in either case Cris Collinsworth’s non stop talking, gushing, phony,”aw shucks,” not important words, will be shoved down our collective throats.



Both teams played last week on “Turkey Day,” each “losing” to the “spread” (not the one, many in this country “gorged” on while others right here in the United States do not have enough to eat), by a fraction of a point.

Some good football only notes concerning some Cowboys and NFL history in the next post, before tonight’s tilt. I will also offer a prediction.
