The Picks: Dolphins at Cowboys



    It’s that time of week. Time to man up and make your pick for this week’s game. Get it right, it's all the pepper spray you can eat this Thanksgiving! Here we go:

    Five of Five ESPN Experts:Cowboys. I picture every ESPN personality gathered around a table this Thanksgiving, all sharing the exact same opinions. "Tim Tebow just wins games, Ron!" "I know, Adam!"

    Yahoo! Users: Cowboys.

    Andy (Cowboys fan I know): Cowboys 16, Dolphins 14 (“Reverse score of the Leon Lett game. Did you know that game took place back when the NFL had TWO bye weeks? Two bye weeks was awful. I'd rather have Tashard Choice back than two bye weeks again.”)

    The "Big Cat" is Back With the Cowboys

    [DFW] The "Big Cat" is Back With the Cowboys
    Infamous former Cowboy Leon Lett is back in town, working with the coaching staff and getting forgiveness for his 1993 Thanksgiving Day blunder.

    Index Card I Threw Up In The Air With The Name Of Each Team On Either Side, Seeing Which Team Would Land Face Up: Dolphins. (Card Record: 8-2. Uh ohhhhh...)

    The Wife: Dolphins (visited Miami a couple times and really enjoyed it)

    Me: I think the Dolphins' three-game win streak is an illusion. Reggie Bush isn't that good. Matt Moore REALLY isn't that good. If the Dolphins win this game, it'll be because Cameron Wake and that defense did a number on Tony Romo. But I'm heartened by the fact that Jason Garrett continued to feed the ball to DeMarco Murray last week even though Murray didn't have his best game. That kind of persistence with the run has helped stabilize this offense, and I think Garrett will stick with a winning strategy. COWBOYS 23, DOLPHINS 10. (2011 picks: 7-3)

    Yours in the comments. Happy Thanksgiving, guys.
