In Sunday's game, two teams that are fighting for wild card spots in their respective conferences will play a game that is crucial for both. The hosting Cincinnati Bengals are three-point favorites against the Dallas Cowboys, according to OddsShark.
After a four game losing streak, the Bengals have bounced back with a four game win streak that has them in the thick of the AFC wild card race and just two games behind the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC North lead. In Week 13, the Bengals scored 10 points in the fourth quarter against the San Diego Chargers to grab a 20-13 lead and managed to hold on to that lead with an interception from Reggie Nelson in the end zone to seal the game.
The Cowboys bounced back from a 3-5 start to the season by winning three of its last four to get back to .500. In a 38-33 win over the Eagles in Week 13, the Cowboys scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, including a 50-yard fumble returned for a touchdown by rookie Morris Claiborne.
With an over/under set at 45.5 points, Sunday's game is expected to be near the league's average for scoring in a game.
