Don’t look now, but the Dallas Cowboys are tied for the best record in the NFL through six weeks of the 2014 season.
And for those who thought it might be somewhat of a fluke, the Cowboys went into Seattle and knocked off the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks.
Actually, they didn’t knock them off, they flat out dominated Seattle. The score was much closer than the flow of the game would indicate, and the Cowboys now find themselves 5-1 through six weeks and tied atop the NFC East division with Philadelphia, who have also gotten off to a hot start.
There is no question that the Cowboys are the story in the NFL so far, and if they can keep it going they will be in the postseason. Teams with a 5-1 record to begin a season make the playoffs more than 80 percent of the time, so things are looking good for them.
Flipping the page to Week 8, things get going on Thursday night in the AFC East between the New England Patriots and the woeful New York Jets. The Patriots have surged back from the depths of the forgotten with a couple of solid performances in a row to remind the NFL they are still here. The Patriots vs. Jets point spread has New England favored by 10 points at home.
Then on Sunday, we get some great matchups in the afternoon between Indianapolis and Cincinnati. The Bengals snatched a tie from the jaws of victory on Sunday against Carolina, missing a field goal as time expired in OT to tie with the Panthers 37-37. At 3-1-1, the Bengals will take on a Colts team that has a few extra days rest after a Thursday victory on the road in a division game. Bovada Sportsbook has this line set at three points in favor of Andrew Luck and company.
The Cleveland Browns all of a sudden look like a legit team, and are favored by six points this week over the winless Jacksonville Jaguars. The Browns have the potential to challenge for the AFC North title, and need to win the games they are supposed to.
Other matchups on the Sunday afternoon calendar include the Panthers vs. Packers, Saints vs. Lions, and Chiefs vs. Chargers.
Sunday Night Football will put Denver against San Francisco, which will certainly generate plenty of interest. The Broncos are at home, but Bovada has been hesitant on releasing the betting line. Denver will be favored, but the question is by how much.
Monday Night will put Houston in Pittsburgh against a Steelers team that is struggling by their standards at 3-3. Pittsburgh is slightly favored at four points, with both needing a big win. LatestBettingOdds.com has the complete set of Week 7 point spreads below!
