Bills vs. Cowboys Recent History – First Meeting Since 2015

Recent history is distant between these teams, as they have not met since Dallas lost 16-6 in Buffalo back in 2015. The Bills are making their first visit to AT&T Stadium since a 44-7 blowout loss in 2011. The Cowboys and Bills meet for just the 12th time, including Super Bowl 27 and 28 wins by Dallas.

Bills vs. Cowboys Final Thoughts and Pick

Of their eight wins, a 14-7 Week 5 defensive duel in Tennessee is the Bills’ lone victory against a team with a winning record. This is a litmus test for the Buffalo defense, as it has not faced an offense as explosive as the Cowboys. Rising rookie RB Devin Singletary, plus veteran Frank Gore, will need to be good for Buffalo to stand a chance here. Buffalo is 4-1 SU and 4-0-1 ATS on the road, though it hasn’t come against top competition.

In the nasty weather at Gillette Stadium, Dallas hung with the defending Super Bowl champion Patriots defensively. The offense was a different story, as Dallas made just two trips into the red zone and didn’t score either time. The Cowboys’ top-ranked pass offense faces the Bills third-ranked pass defense that has not been tested much. Dallas is 3-2 SU and ATS at home. Take the ‘Boys to win and cover.

Pick: Cowboys -6.5

Season Record: 14-26
