    Chris Carr #23 of the Oakland Raiders returns a punt against the Dallas Cowboys in 2005.

    It's the annual short work week for the Dallas Cowboys. Coming off a physical 7-6 win over the Redskins, I'm assuming the players bodies feel about as fresh as the bird in peoples oven.

    In fact during pregame warm-ups the line was a little longer for the early stretches.

    Today's game against the Raiders sets up a lot like last weeks against Redskins. A bad team, surrounded by drama, who has the ability to keep games close.

    In fact Oakland is riding high after an unexpected win against the Bengals last week.

    Injuries are a problem for the Cowboys right now. Marc Colombo is out, so is Ken Hamlin.

    Jason Witten was said to be a game time decision, but worked out early and will play. The player to watch is Tony Romo. His back was banged up last week, and he's been practicing sore. One good hit, and we could see Jon Kitna.

    Bottom line, Cowboys will win today. Its a matter of how convincingly. They are well aware of what lies ahead next month.

    They're also mindful of not to look ahead. Today will be another successful turkey day. The Cowboys need all the wins they cal collect, because today is their last game in November.

    My fearless prediction:

    Cowboys   21    Raiders  10
