What we know, what we don't know on Thanksgiving

Dallas Cowboys

7-3

Thanksgiving is a special day for Dallas Cowboys fans. Not only do you get to enjoy some great food, but you get to watch America’s Team play in a game that has been a tradition in Dallas.

Turkey Day seems to be the measuring stick if the Cowboys will be making the playoffs or not. In 2019 and 2020, Dallas lost to the Buffalo Bills and Washington Football Team, respectively. The Cowboys missed the playoffs in both seasons.

In 2016, when the Cowboys were 9-1, they beat the Washington Football Team 31-26 and went on to become the No.1 seed in the NFC.

It’s not a perfect science, and there are years where the “superstition” isn’t true, but today is heading towards being a “win and in” game for the Cowboys. Over the past three weeks, they have a record of 1-2 with Jekyll and Hyde production on the field.

For the first seven weeks of the season, the NFL world knew who the Dallas Cowboys were. Now, it’s a little tougher to know if they are even a playoff contender. Against the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs, the offense produced a combined 25 points, whereas, against the Atlanta Falcons, they put up 43 points in one game.

Before Dallas squares off against the Las Vegas Raiders on CBS, here are two things we know and don’t know about the Cowboys.
