After opening the season with seven-straight losses and playing themselves right into the Andrew Luck Sweepstakes, the Miami Dolphins have suddenly sprung to life, winning their last three games in convincing fashion. For a time, it was ugly in Miami, with the town seemingly resigned, and perhaps excited, to a high draft pick and little else. But all that has changed, even if it's too little and too late.
Miami heads to Dallas to face the Cowboys on Thanksgiving day just days after handing the Buffalo Bills a 35-8 loss. On the other side of the field, the Cowboys are coming in hot, as well, after winning their last three, including an overtime victory over the Washington Redskins last weekend.
Dallas is 4-1 at home while Miami is 1-4 on the road, so on paper this matchup would seem to heavily favor the Cowboys. At this point, though, with the Dolphins suddenly finding a groove, it's tough to pick this Thanksgiving day matchup.
The Cowboys and Dolphins are part of a Thanksgiving day triple-header as the second game of the full slate. Here's the information for the matchup.
Game Date/Time: Thursday, Nov. 24, 4:15 p.m. ET
