The Cowboys already won their week twelve game against the Dolphins on Thursday. With the win, the Cowboys moved to 7-4, and a half game lead atop the NFC East.
If you could have one guaranteed win from the week twelve games, which one would you take?
In the early Sunday games, a Vikings win over the Falcons would drop the Falcons even further back in the NFC wild card race. But the 6-4 Falcons are playing at home and are nine-point favorites against the 2-8 Vikings, so a Vikings win is a long shot.
Things get a little more interesting in the afternoon games. A Patriots win over the Eagles would drive the final nail into the Eagles coffin, so that's a strong incentive to root for the Patriots. The 3-7 Redskins are playing at 4-6 Seattle, and while the 'Skins have lost all relevance in the NFC playoff race, why would anybody ever root for the 'Skins? The 7-3 Bears are currently the leading team in the NFC wildcard race. They're playing without Jay Cutler in Oakland, where the Raiders are three-point favorites.
And on Monday, the Giants are seven-point underdogs in New Orleans.
