Cowboys @ Vikings 8:25 NBC, NFLN, TWITTER

At this point Dallas just needs to keep winning.  By beating the Vikings this Thursday it not only helps the Eagles out in the Wild Card it also helps them out in the draft pecking order.  Don’t forget the Eagles received a 1st round pick for Sam Bradford.  Although I would put money on the Eagles not making the playoffs anything could happen.  The Cowboy game plan is simple.  Ground and pound to take pressure off the defense.  Everyone knows what they are going to do.  Stopping it is easier said than done with that offensive line.  Look for this to be a close game.  This could be the Vikings Super Bowl and season saving win as they are right in the thick of the wild card race as well.  Expect this to be a close game but ultimately a Dallas victory.

Cowboys Transactions:

Thomas, Josh CB Reserve/non football injury 11/22
Thomas, Josh CB Taken off IR – left thumb 11/22
McClain, Rolando LB Suspension Lifted 11/21

Redskins @ Cardinals 4:25 FOX

Another important game with playoff implications in Arizona.  The Cardinals are not in the mix.  A disappointing season from week 1 has Cardinals fans scratching their heads.  The Redskins didn’t play all that poorly vs Dallas.  Some questionable coaching decisions such as the onside kick helped tilt the game in the favor of the Cowboys.  The Skins have talent.  They are a good team and are firmly in the playoff mix.  This will be a good game with odds on the Skins pulling it out.

Redskins Transactions:

11/29/2016 Signed DL A.J. Francis to the active roster from the practice squad and waived LS Rick Lovato.

Giants @ Steelers 4:25 FOX

This will be the best game of the weekend.  Both teams are riding high following victories. Do the Giants have the playmakers on defense to limit AB?  I fully expect the Giants to be able to put up points vs the Steelers defense.  This has the potential to be a shootout with both teams scoring in the 30’s.  The Steelers have an extra 4 days to prepare playing Thanksgiving night.  This game like most will be won or lost in the trenches.  If the Steelers OL can giving Ben time to do his thing the Steelers could come out the victors.

Giants Transactions:

11/29/2016 RB Orleans Darkwa – Placed on Reserve/Injured
11/29/2016 S/LB Eric Pinkins – Signed off practice squad to active roster
