NFL Week 4: New England Patriots vs Dallas Cowboys Odds, and Picks (Oct 1)
- The Patriots beat the Jets 15-10 in week 3.
- The Cowboys suffered a shock 16-28 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
- These teams last met in 2021 with the Cowboys winning 35-29 in O/T.
The 1-2 Patriots take on the 2-1 Cowboys after each side picked up their first win and loss of the season respectively last week. This matchup sees former Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott return to his old stomping ground for the first time with his new team.
How To Watch
The Patriots overcame the Jets in week 3 courtesy of a Pharoah Brown touchdown, two field goals from rookie kicker Chad Ryland, and a safety. Running back Ezekiel Elliott saw a huge uptick in usage (if not in snaps). The former Cowboy must replicate his performance of running for 80 yards on 18 carries against his previous team this upcoming weekend.
In week 3, the Cowboys’ offense and defense underperformed, resulting in a disappointing 16-28 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals’ defense kept CeeDee Lamb from making a significant impact in the game. Against New England’s defense in week 4, Dallas will need their star wide-out to step up. The team is still facing injury concerns with their offensive line, which could lead to increased pressure on QB Dak Prescott in the pocket.
Get ready for an intense matchup between Dallas and New England. While it will be a close game, I predict that Dallas will come out on top but they may not cover the spread.
