The NFL closes out Week 9 with an inter-conference matchup between two 3-4 teams struggling to stick in the playoff chase. The Dallas Cowboys host the Tennessee Titans, with kickoff set for 5:15 p.m. PT on ESPN. Joe Tessitore and Jason Witten will call the game from the booth, with Booger McFarland serving as an analyst from the field. Lisa Salters continues her duties as the sideline reporter.
The Cowboys added wide receiver Dez Bryant during their bye week, adding depth to a position that has been a mess for them. They are a five-point favorite over the Titans, according to sportsbooks monitored by Odds Shark. I have the Titans at +6.5 in my weekly SuperContest picks, which is a more palatable number. Either way, I think this is sufficiently close that I’ll take Titans +5 as well.
