Dallas Cowboys (6-4) at New England Patriots (9-1)

Sunday, November 24, 4:25PM ET

Yes! The always interesting showdown between the No. 1 offense (Dallas Cowboys) and the No. 1 defense (New England Patriots). Regardless of your feelings towards these teams, there’s a very good chance this one will be worth tuning in for.

Can Dak Prescott get the ball moving against this stubborn New England defense? Will the Patriots be able to keep Ezekiel Elliott in check? Can Dallas’ own defense do enough to keep Tom Brady from breaking out of his current slump? Or will this be the snoozer no one wants to watch?

I don’t have any of the answers. My only real prediction here is that the Patriots come away with the win. In these situations, I like to give the edge to the team with the best coaching. And no matter how much you loathe Bill Belichick, he’s clearly the victor in that department. Future Hall of Famer, or a guy who probably should have been fired years ago?

Even if Prescott has another big day, the Patriots will do just enough to squeak out the win. They’ve faced stiff competition already this season and turned it away without too much trouble. As long as the New England offense doesn’t crash and burn, the Patriots will be 10-1 when Week 12 is over.

Prediction: Patriots win 28-26
