NFL picks and predictions 2013, Week 5: Broncos vs. Cowboys

Justin Edmonds

Despite being at home, Dallas comes in as a sizable underdog against Manning and the Broncos.

The Dallas Cowboys are set to host the Denver Broncos on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Stadium, but do it from the unusual position of home underdog.

Over at, every member of the eight-man expert panel thinks Denver will win the game, with only two analysts picking the Cowboys to overcome the 7.5-point spread.

SB Nation's NFL people believe the same thing as CBS, with all five picking a Dallas demise.

It is not all that surprising when you consider how well Denver has been playing all year. Peyton Manning has simply been out of his mind, throwing for 16 touchdowns and zero interceptions. No quarterback in NFL history has ever started a season with that statline.

On the other sideline, you have a Cowboys team that makes everybody in the league scratch their heads. Jason Garrett's group has a bevy of talent but always seems to come up short as they did against the San Diego Chargers last week, giving up 20 unanswered points to lose 30-21.
