ANALYSIS: Though I understand the love for the Patriots in this spot, it feels like a lot of comes from not realizing where both of these teams stand in 2021. Namely, the Cowboys have one of the most explosive offenses in the league alongside a steadily improving defense, while the Patriots wins this season have come against, wait for it, the Texans and the Jets. New England gets credit for limiting Tampa Bay in a 19-17 loss two weeks ago, but that final forgets the weather and the Buccaneers' numerous miscues. It's strange to say it, but I think, finally, the Cowboys are for real. Their 5-0 ATS mark this season proves that they continue to be undervalued, and I think Dallas makes a statement on Sunday afternoon.
