The NFL wraps up Week 15 Sunday with a Sunday Night Football matchup of two teams battling to stay alive in the playoff race. The Oakland Raiders host the Dallas Cowboys, with the loser all but eliminated from playoff chase. The game kicks off on NBC at 5:30 p.m. PT with Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, and Michele Tafoya on the call.

The Cowboys are 7-6, and a half game back of the Seattle Seahawks for the second NFC wild card berth. The Raiders are 6-7, and a game and a half back of the Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens for the second AFC wild card berth. Neither team would be eliminated with a loss, but this is a huge one for both team’s playoff hopes.

Dallas is a field goal road favorite, according to Odds Shark. I am laying the points, even on the road. The Raiders could surprise me, but they are too inconsistent to take the points.
