The Bills visit the Cowboys Sunday, and oddsmakers think Buffalo will put Dallas under .500.
The Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys are trying to find consistency in their seasons as they enter their matchup in Week 10. The Bills have gone 2-3 since opening the season 3-0, and now find themselves in a three-way tie for first place in the AFC East and are hoping from more consistency in their passing game. The Cowboys are 4-4 despite fielding one of the more talented rosters in the NFL. That's why our good buddies at Odds Shark have the Bills as 4.5-point favorites on the road
Fred Jackson has led the Bills to nearly all of their offensive success. They have a defense that is the best in the league at creating turnovers, and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has been a capable steward of head coach Chan Gailey's game plan, but the team essentially goes as Jackson goes. In Week 9 against the Jets, he was largely bottled up, and the Bills were dropped handily by the New York Jets.
The Cowboys have turned into a team that's built its record against weak foes — they've beaten the Rams, Seahawks and Redskins, and their Week 2 victory against the 49ers is looking more and more like an outlier — that can't close out on high-quality opponents. They will be without No. 1 wide receiver Miles Austin again, but desperately ned to beat the Bills to keep pace with the Giants in their divison.
