Dallas Cowboys vs New York Jets Odds, Predictions, and Picks

In one of the most anticipated week 1 NFL match-ups, the Dallas Cowboys head to New York to take on the Jets. Both of these teams entered the 2010 season as favorites to win the Super Bowl, but both came up short of that goal. The Dallas Cowboys were one of the biggest disappointments as they finished with a 6-10 record and lost starting quarterback Tony Romo early in the season. The Cowboys then let their head coach Wade Phillips go during the season, and ended on a good note with Jason Garrett running the show. The Jets on the other hand had an impressive season last year and ended with an 11-5 record, but lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game. Both teams head into their opening week match-up at full strength and looking to start the season off on the right foot. A very interesting match-up in this game actually comes from the coaching staffs of the two teams, as the Jets head coach Rex Ryan will be up against his brother, defensive coordinator Rob Ryan of the Dallas Cowboys. This game is the first Sunday Night Football game of the season.

This game will be one of the most interesting games of the opening week, and I believe the outcome could shock a few people. The Cowboys defense will be much improved under Rob Ryan, while the Jets have one of the stronger teams all-around in the NFL this season. This game is really a match-up of a strong offense in Dallas, against a strong defense in New York. I think that the defense of the Dallas Cowboys, which is led by Demarcus Ware, will step up and make the plays that they need to make in order to shut down the Jets offense, and pull off a huge road win against the New York Jets.

In a spot like this with a strong offense against a strong defense, the real question comes down to which opponent can step up in terms of their weaker points. I see the Cowboys defense coming out fired up and Rob Ryan being sure his side is ready for this Jets offense. I like the Dallas Cowboys to pull off the upset here, and to cover this +4.5 point spread. I'm picking the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Pick: Dallas Cowboys +4.5
