Dallas Cowboys @ Tampa Bay Bucs
Bucs favored by 6 1/2. Who would have thought THIS would be the game of the week? Defending Super Bowl champs versus the upstart Dallas Cowboys. The Bucs are banged up. They will be without their strating cornerback this week. He went down prior to the Colts stunning comeback on MNF. Without him last week, the secondary looked mighty vulnerable last week against the Niners. The Cowboys have been able to handle the rush all year & if you give Quincy Carter some time, he can get it done. The Bucs defense just ain't what it used to be. The Cowboys, all though off to a great start, haven't got the respect because of the level of opponents they have played. That all starts to change this week! I wonder how long it has been since both the two teams in the Super Bowl the previous season failed to make the playoffs the following year?
My Pick: Dallas 24, Bucs 17
