Both of these teams are coming off of wins in dominating fashion, with the Cowboys taking down the Falcons at home 43-3, while the Chiefs went on the road and crushed the Raiders in Las Vegas 41-14.
Both of these teams boast exciting offenses, and there will be plenty of fireworks come Sunday. The Cowboys are out to prove they are the best team in the NFC, while the Chiefs look to take control of the NFC West. This could be a potential Super Bowl matchup, so let check out how these two teams compare.
Dallas Cowboys Betting Preview: Cowboys Get Back on Track with Huge Win
The Dallas Cowboys are one of the most exciting teams in the NFL. The offense is absolutely electric; Dallas is averaging a league-best 433.9 yards and 31.6 points per game. After putting up a dud at home against the Broncos, the Cowboys came out and routed the Falcons by scoring 36 points in the first half and 431 total yards.
Dak Prescott and the offense were clicking on all cylinders. Prescott finished with almost 300 yards passing and two touchdowns, while the ground game added 114 yards and two Ezikiel Elliott touchdowns. Ceedee Lamb broke out in a big way, connecting with Prescott six times for 94 yards, along with two touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Cowboys looked spectacular. Dallas was able to secure three interceptions last week, including one from Trevon Diggs, who now has eight interceptions in nine games this year. In addition, the Cowboys own the fourth-most takeaways in the NFL (14) and are allowing just 21 points per game.
Kansas City Chiefs Betting Preview: The Offense is Back!
On the other hand, the Chiefs own a three-game win streak and are as hot as anyone in the NFL right now. After struggling with turnovers for most of the season, the offense broke out in a huge way. Patrick Mahomes put together his best performance of the season, throwing for over 400 yards, while accumulating five touchdown passes.
Additionally, there were some huge playmakers on the offensive end. Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill looked phenomenal. The veteran Kelce snagged eight receptions and 119 yards and constantly moved the chains, while Hill reeled in two touchdown grabs. Darrell Williams showed off his dual-threat ability rushing for 43 yards while grabbing 101 yards receiving and a touchdown.
Defensively, the Chiefs have been one of the worst units in the league, particularly against the pass. The secondary has given up an average of 259 yards per game through the air. Be that as it may, the defense has turned it up in recent weeks. The Chiefs have allowed over 30 points per game this year but turned it around their last three games, giving up just 12.7 per contest.

The Chiefs are as hot as any team right now, securing their third victory in a row and doing so in a huge way. The offense is starting to click, and Patrick Mahomes looked absolutely dangerous. Although this may be true, the fact is the Chiefs have played terribly at home, going 0-5 ATS so far in 2021.
The Cowboys, on the other hand, have been consistent all year on offense and defense. The defense has the second-most interceptions in the league, with Trevon Diggs playing out of his mind at the corner. Additionally, the offense is the number one ranked offense in the league and will be up against a Chiefs unit that has been terrible all year. The Cowboys should be favored in this one. Take Dallas with confidence.
