NFL Odds: Division Leads Head-to-Head in Dallas. The leaders of the NFC South and NFC East clash this Thursday, with Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys welcoming Drew Brees’ New Orleans Saints to town. Thanksgiving Thursday was a big day for both of these clubs, but with a win over the Washington Redskins that resulted in Dallas overtaking the NFC East, they’ll be riding high against the league’s top team this Thursday.
Thursday Night Football will feature two teams that are riding huge momentum. The Dallas Cowboys are coming off of a critical victory that resulted in Dallas overtaking Washington for first place in the NFC East. They’ve been able to flex some defensive muscle of late, holding opponents to 20 points or less in four of their last five games, but they’ll be challenged against the Saints’ league-best offense.

Drew Brees is an early favorite for league MVP this season according to Bovada SportsBook and the 39-year-old isn’t slowing down. The veteran leads all starting QBs with a 127.3 QB rating this year and has guided his offense to a league-best 37.2 points per game clip through 12 weeks. Following the Saints’ 31-17 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday, New Orleans owns a 10-1 record and a stranglehold on the division.
Dallas, meanwhile, is in the midst of resurrecting their season. That resurrection has, in part, been due to the addition of WR Amari Cooper. Against Washington last week, Cooper collected 180 passing yards and 2 TDs to lead Dallas to a critical divisional victory. The talented receiver will be back at it on Thursday as the ‘Boys try to keep pace with the Saints’ dynamic offense. Kick off is 8:20 PM ET.
