    That's about what I would have guessed. Probably one of the last times this year they'll be favored by less than a touchdown.

    Wow. Where's the respect for America's team? Tony Romo the league's new superstar. Terrel Owens the leagues best receiver. Marion Barber the leagues best RB. That Wade Phillips defense with all those high draft picks?

    Dallas should be a 3-point favorite at least.

    Wow.

    That's pretty generous.

    I was gonna say 2 or 3 tops.

    But historically, the Pats are BIG in high profile big games more than not.

    If you assume that home field advantage is worth 2.5 points, then it would be the Pats by 7 on a neutral field which explains the 4.5...........

    The Patriots will win by 10+, more like 13 or 14.

    They had 7 Pro Bowlers last year and we only had 2. They are the better team. We shouldn't even bother flying out to DTW.

    I called -4.5 in another thread yesterday.

    Where exactly did you find that line?

    I thought it was 3 for home field advantage, which would be 7.5 on a neutral field?

    Anyway, I'm fairly certain that Dallas' poor showing against the Bills has something to do with the line. But I think we all know the Cowboys are not going to suck as badly as they did last night. Then again, the Pats aren't going to be as sloppy as they were Sunday, hopefully.

    I was expecting us to be a 7 point favorite.

    They have a pretty decent tight end in Whitten who is faster than most TE's in the league..Fast TE's usually give us trouble.....Then that other guy. Owens. Last time we saw him, he was hobbling around the field for a huge game in the SB that everyone predicted he would never play in.

    They might keep our D busy. And Barber is a shifty guy that also is kind of tough for D as well.

    Witten has some speed but he's not THAT fast. The tight end we faced last week is faster. And Watson would smoke him in a race.

    He's not a slug either. Dallas Clark did a 4.68 at the combine....Whitten 4.62.

    I'd say he's faster than most.

    Watson won't be covering Whiten.
    Hopefully AD is ok because we're really
    going to need him for this guy.

    Point me to where I said Watson would be covering "Whiten." I was just comparing tight end speed.

    Just a little sarcasm.
    I just think it's pointless to compare tight end speed.
    Watson being faster than Whiten isn't going to help the
    Pats stop Whiten.
    But we're going to need AD to be healthy.
    If he is, then Whiten worries me less.
