If you are one to Bet on NFL then this game for the Raiders is a do or die if they want to make a playoff run if feasible, and/or move in and above .500. Their last game they lost a close one to the Tennessee Titans 23-19 as the Titans who were trailing in the game scored a winning TD on a pass of 10 yards with ten seconds left in the game to take the victory over Oakland. Oakland fame FG kicker Janikowski missed two field goals in the games that could have been crucial for a win. Meanwhile the Titans kicker made three field goals in the game. The Raiders rookie QB was 19 for 32 and was intercepted once in the game. The 1st half game had its strange moments with 5 field goals, a missed FG, blocked punt and a few dropped passes, and some 135 yards penalized on 12 penalties.
At the Offshore sportsbook the opening odds are favoring the Cowboys at -9 ½ with the total 45 ½. The Cowboys beat the New York Giants this past Sunday 24-21 with a field goal on the final play of the game. That win ended the struggling Cowboys slight hopes of a playoff spot. For Dallas this was a very important game as is the game Thursday with the Raiders. The Giants were trying to be only the second team in the NFL to lose six straight and then win five straight and also try to position themselves for a playoff spot. But that did not take place. That was the second loss to Dallas by the Giants this season. The Cowboys QB Romo had a decent game completing 23 of 38 passing attempts for some 250 yards. Now with short notice the Cowboys have to face a upcoming team in the Raiders this Turkey Day. May the best Turkey Win!
