Saturday Night Football Week 17: Lions at Cowboys Open Thread

The Dallas Cowboys will host the Detroit Lions on Saturday Night Football in Week 17. Come chat with us during the game!

Syndication: USA TODAY Jim Rassol / USA TODAY NETWORK

In one of the best matchups of the week, the NFL has the 11-4 Detroit Lions on the road against the 10-5 Dallas Cowboys in a critical NFC matchup with major playoff implications for both teams. Both teams have Top 10 offenses, but it is the Cowboys with the Top 10 defense here and a homefield advantage. This is a game that they must have with the Philadelphia Eagles a game up in the division.

Kickoff is set for Saturday, Dec. 30, 2023 at 6:15 p.m. Mile High time at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas and will air on ESPN and ABC.

My Prediction

In partnership with DraftKings Sportsbook, we will get to do a lot of picks this year. Straight-up, against the spread, and over/under picks. This should be a fun game to watch and I do think it’ll end up being a close one. The Cowboys should not be a six-point favorite at home against an 11-win team, so I would expect the Lions to cover that in the end. This should be Dallas’ game to win, though. They need this win far more than the Lions do.
