    The Raiders have a decent chance of beating Dallas tomorrow.

    They've beaten them the last 3 times they've played them.

    A Ripley's Believe-It-Or-Not stat:

    The Raiders have scored more points in the last 3 games than the Cowboys have. :icon_eek:

    Cowboys:

    11/8 versus Eagles - 20 points
    11/15 versus Packers - 7 points
    11/22 versus Redskins - 7 points

    34 points scored the last 3 games


    Raiders:

    11/1 versus Chargers - 16 points
    11/15 versus Chiefs - 10 points
    11/22 versus Bengals - 20 points

    46 points scored the last 3 games

    And this was with JaBustus Russell playing for two of those games, and two rookie WR that can't catch!

    As ESPN would say:


    COME ON, MAN!

    Dallas always blows out the competition on Thanksgiving.

    They do the same thing every week for the rest of the season, too...without the "out the competition". :icon_tease:

    I kinda don't care who wins, just hope they both beat the hell out of each other. Let the bodies hit the floor.

    BUT...

    Should Dallas lose, Jerruh won't be happy. See, I believe he had the choice of San Diego or Oakland to have at home on Thanksgiving. CBS has the game this year so it had to be an AFC team and the only two that were on the Cowpies home schedule were the Chargers & Raiders. He chose Oakland because he thought it would be an easier game AND he HAS TO LOOK GOOD in that shiny new stadium of his.

    So, part of me follows your thinking of rooting for Dallas to lose. :yes:

    I would love for Dallas to squeak by with, say, a 3-2 win.

    The natives in Texas would grow restless with yet another dismal offensive performance. :yes:

    Man, this is a hard game to call, I hate both teams equally. As a matter of fact, I really hate the Cowbags more but I will compromise. Let them beat the hell out of each other and the team with less bodies lying around the field be declared the winner.
    As for the debacle about to played in the mild-high city, go Gyants!
    Detrois and G Bay, no comment but it would be really rare for the motor city to win on this day. Just my .02 cents...

    Pointy :icon_twisted: (Where's my turducken sandwich?)

    they have priced the Raiders over here at 29/5, almost 6 to 1to win the game, while they have the Cowboys as 1/9 favourites. Crazy odds for both teams.

    I'd like to see a 45 man injury report for both of these teams on Monday. :icon_twisted:

    Soften 'em up for us, Oakland. :icon_toast:

    I'll root for a tie ball game and one hell of an injury report for next week, nothing serious of course.

    I just want the Donk's to lose flat out, no questions asked.

    They set up Dallas with a team they can beat up on Thanksgiving. I don't see this as an easy win for Dallas today.
    I wish they could both lose.

    If the faiders O-line can't protect Gradkowski better than the series I just watched - its going to be a long day for chokeland.

    They did, however, seem to have a little success running right at Olshansky... ;)

    Remember how we were talking about Rivers not even attempting a route in the "wild frog"?

    Romo's doing the same in the Cowboys wildcat plays. :lol:

    13:04 left in 2Q, Scott and Branch collide while trying to make an interception.

    Apparently, they are trying to outdo the crossing-route collision by Murphy and DHB :icon_rofl:.
