Last season, an injury to star quarterback Tony Romo torpedoed the Dallas Cowboys’ season. This time around, an injured Tony Romo has opened the door for a rookie to lead the Cowboys to new heights. There’s no longer a quarterback controversy in Dallas; it looks like Romo, the former starter, will have to serve as a backup to a team that’s now in the running for the Super Bowl.

Dallas Cowboys
This Week’s Super Bowl Odds: +550
Last Week: +800

The Cowboys’ win in Pittsburgh solidified their position atop the NFL. Not only does rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott lead the NFL with 1,005 rushing yards, rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has now finished seven of his last eight games with a completion percentage of 66.7 or higher. The Cowboys are 7-point favourites for their matchup against the Baltimore Ravens this week.


Kansas City Chiefs
This Week’s Super Bowl Odds: +1600
Last Week: +2800

While they don’t get much attention, the Chiefs have now won five straight games and are the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Their offense isn’t flashy, but it’s effective. Their defense has allowed an average of 15.2 points per game over their last five, and the Chiefs lead the NFL with a +14 turnover differential. That’s a strong formula for success. The Chiefs are 7.5-point favourites when they host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday.


Moving On Down

Green Bay Packers
Last Week’s Super Bowl Odds: +1600
This Week: +2500

The Packers are crumbling right before our eyes with three straight losses. They lost by 22 points to the Tennessee Titans last Sunday, and the week before that, they trailed the Indianapolis Colts by 18 points in the fourth. They also lost by 14 to the Dallas Cowboys. Their struggles aren’t restricted to their offense, either. The Packers’ defense looks like it’s falling apart, too. They’ve allowed an average of 30.2 points per game over their last five. On the bright side, they’re still one game out of first place in the division, and could improve their position with a victory over the Washington Redskins (-3) this Sunday.


Minnesota Vikings
Last Week’s Super Bowl Odds: +2800
This Week: +4000

The Vikings started 5-0, but after losing four straight, they’ve slipped to 5-4 SU and ATS. Their offense played better in Washington last week, scoring 20 points in the loss, but that was the most they’ve scored in a game since Week 5. Things won’t get any easier when they face the Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys in the coming weeks.
