For reasons unknown, I continue to pick the Dallas Cowboys. They’ve lost three straight, and in those games they’ve averaged 7.3 points and lost by an average of 23.3 points. Yet I picked them to beat the Los Angeles Chargers at home on Thanksgiving.
Other than Dallas, however, almost all the teams that were supposed to win last week did.
Last Week: 13-3
