Dallas Cowboys open up as 4-point favorites for Week 6 at the New England Patriots

The Cowboys are favored to win in Week 6.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at New England Patriots Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys will be taking their four-game win streak on the road next week, all the way up to the northeast where they will face the New England Patriots. The Patriots are coming off a close win over the Houston Texans, but are only 2-3 on the 2021 season. They are still struggling in the post-Tom Brady era as they search for an identity while breaking in a rookie quarterback.

As such, even though Dallas is on the road at what used to be a traditionally tough place to win, the Cowboys are favored by four points according to DraftKings Sportsbook.

The Cowboys will be riding momentum heading into next Sunday, and they are also being lead by Dak Prescott and a proficient offense that has no problems putting up points. The opportunistic Cowboys defense will be battling rookie quarterback Mac Jones who looks like he could be a keeper based on his early play.

The last time these two teams met (2019) it turned out to be a loss for the Cowboys (13-9) as tough weather hampered both team’s ability to move the ball. The big play was a punt block by the Patriots. This year, expect the Cowboys offense to put on more of a show.
