While Cowboys vs Chiefs is one of the most exciting matchups of the week, it’s not the only one. On the docket there are the likes of Colts vs Bills, Steelers vs Chargers, Giants vs Buccaneers and more.
However, most of the country will be able to tune in to Cowboys vs Chiefs if they want to, so here is everything you need to know about the game, from a quick matchup preview to just exactly how you can watch.
Cowboys vs Chiefs matchup preview
The Cowboys vs Chiefs game is going to be all about the offenses, as both teams field top-four units in the league. Will it come down to who has the ball last, or will one of the defenses be able to make a stop?
Coming into this game it is the Cowboys that have the best offense in the league both in terms of yards per game (433.9) and points per game (31.6). They have scored more than 35 points in five of their nine games so far this season. A big reason for that success is the return of Dak Prescott. After suffering a season-ending injury early in 2020, the Pro Bowl quarterback has reminded everyone how good he is, throwing for 2,341 yards, 20 touchdowns and five interceptions. Only three other teams are averaging more passing yards per game than Prescott and the Cowboys.
Of course, Prescott has quite the supporting cast around him. Running back Ezekiel Elliott has 663 rushing yards and seven touchdowns, while relief back Tony Pollard has added 445 yards of his own. The Cowboys also feature the receiving duo of CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper, who have combined for 1,309 yards and 11 touchdowns; tight end Dalton Schultz is also having a solid year catching the ball (438 yards, three touchdowns).
The Chiefs have their own stud at quarterback, former MVP and Super Bowl-winner Patrick Mahomes. Though Mahomes has been a bit more turnover prone this season than he has in the last couple, opposing teams may be concerned to hear that he has gone two games without throwing a pick and is coming off a 406 yard and five touchdown performance against the Raiders; so far the exclamation point to a three-game winning streak that has put the Chiefs back in first place in their division.
The Chiefs also have a pair of dynamic receiving weapons in wide receiver Tyrek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce, who have a combined 1,602 yards and 13 touchdowns. The Chiefs could be getting some reinforcements as well in the form of running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire. While Edwards-Helaire’s status for Sunday’s game is still TBD, things are pointing in that direction and he could be a big help in giving the Chiefs some more balance.
But the $1,000,000 for this game is will either defense be able to make a stop. If you’re going by the numbers, Dallas is the more likely to manage it. Kansas City’s defense ranks 26th in the league and is giving up an average of 373.2 yards per game, while Dallas ranks 15th at 354 yards per game; they also have Trevon Diggs, who will look to add to his eight interceptions already this season by snagging some off Mahomes.
The game is in Kansas City, however, always a tough place to play. All things considered, the oddsmakers are giving the edge right now to the chiefs, favoring them by 2.5 points.
