This weekend's Wild Card Round of the NFL Playoffs wraps things up this Sunday afternoon with a NFC clash between the Detroit Lions and the Dallas Cowboys. Anyone who follows this blog on a regular basis is well aware of the fact that there is no love lost between myself and Dallas; more specifically its team owner Jerry Jones. To me, he is a meddlesome egomaniac that refuses to admit that there are NFL executives in this world that are far more qualified to run the football operations of this team than he is. This franchise's past failures since the glory days of the early-90's when he did let people like Jimmie Johnson run the show are a testament to my analysis of the situation.
I have taken great pleasure in three-straight 8-8 seasons that all ended with a loss that cost the Cowboys the NFC East title. Things are different this time around and even I have to admit that Dallas may be on to something heading into this year's playoffs. A win on Sunday at home would extend the Cowboys' current winning streak to five games and send them into Green Bay next week with quite a head of steam. I can actually see Dallas winning that game, which would probably result in a trip to Seattle for the NFC Championship. That is where the ride probably comes to an end; however from what I have seen from the Cowboys over the past few games, they do have everything in place for a Super Bowl run.
All season long I have been doing NFL game previews and picks for a website called SportsBettingStats.com. The following is a link to my preview and pick for this Sunday's Dallas game in an article that was previously posted on the site.
