Cowboys vs. Browns: Dallas goes for 2 in a row

Can the Cowboys start a winning streak? Hosting a team like the Browns is a good way to build one.


The Dallas Cowboys are set to host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday as the Cowboys try to win two games in a row for the first time this season.

The Cowboys return home for three straight games after a 38-23 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 11. Despite not eclipsing 300 yards of total offense, Dallas still scored more than 30 points for the first time this season. Felix Jones rushed for 71 yards in the continued absence of DeMarco Murray, while Tony Romo was an efficient 19-26 for 209 yards and two touchdowns.

Dallas is now just inside the top 10 for both total offense and total defense.

At 2-7, the Cleveland Browns visit Dallas after a bye week. After starting 0-5, the Browns are 2-2 in their last four contests. In those four games, rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden has completed 55% of his passes for four touchdowns, three interceptions, and 200 passing yards per game. Fellow rookie Trent Richardson leads the Browns in rushing at 64 yards per game.

Date/Time: Sun., Nov. 18, 12 p.m. CT


Odds: Dallas is favored by 7.5 points
