Thanksgiving Game Day: Cowboys 33 vs Raiders 36 live
The Cowboys put up a fight there at the end, but they needed to put up a fight the whole game. It wasn't enough and with Zuerlein's missed PAT and missed field goal attempt plus penalties out the whazoo, they were really just shooting themselves in the foot.

With just 27 seconds to go in the first half, the Cowboys are finally able to make some big moves and get the ball into the end zone to make it a 5-point game just before halftime. It was an 87-yard drive before Elliott took it into the end zone on a 1-yard run.
Zuerlein extra point is GOOD!
Well, with only 1 yard to go, Elliott takes it right in.
After the 3rd down and 2, Pollard breaks through and nearly gets the touchdown and they rule it as so but they rule it just short after review - looks like his knee was down before the ball crossed the line

Another first down 12-yard pass from Carr to Waller at the Dallas 35
A penalty puts the Raiders at 2nd and 15 and they're abe to get 5 yards on a pass to Renfrow. Carr passes to Edwards and a Pass Interference is called on the Cowboys to give the Raiders an automatic first down
Cowboys are way back after Wilson tried to run it back after the kick but was tackled hard by Ferrell and after a 2-yard gain, an incomplete pass to Wilson, a False Start, and another incomplete pass to Elliott, the Cowboys give the ball right back to the Raiders again. Diggs, where you at?
Carr is run out of bounds (technically "sacked" by Lewis) at the LV 27 so they're brought to 4th down
Carr pass to Waller is KNOCKED OUT by Kearse and Neal grabs it just before it goes out of bounds, tosses it back to Kearse who keeps it in for the Cowboys to get the ball back but the refs are terrible and called it an incomplete pass. Third down Raiders...
Zuerlein misses the extra point...who can say why.
Prescott passes to McKeon for 10 yards and the TOUCHDOWN!
The Raiders didn't see this coming and Dak throws a big 17-yard pass to a wide open Wilson

Carlson's PAT is GOOD!
And there's that DeSean Jackson TD I predicted, albeit much sooner than I expected!
Carr's pass is complete to Waller and Diggs was all over him but almost only counts in horse shoes and hand grenades - 1st down Raiders
And it's a pass-off to Jacobs for a gain of 3 - 2nd and 7
Renfrow has a 21-yard return on that punt and the Raiders are at the LV 29
Dak throws it on the third down and passes it to Elliott but he's stopped by Abrams, bringing them to 3 and out and Anger punts it away
So far, they're doing as expected, handing it off to Elliott, but they're not gaining enough yardage here, already at 3rd and 4
Did the announcer just call him Zach Elliott? hmmm
The Cowboys and Raiders game is underway in Arlington Texas!
Freddy Jones starting us off with the national anthem on the trumpet and a wonderful job he did!
Bold Predictions: Cowboys 21, Raiders 10
Well, I don't typically like to bet on or against the Cowboys and if you grew up watching them in the 2000's, you understand why. But hey, it's Thanksgiving, so why not?
The Cowboys are missing some key players, true. But they are also playing at home and have the turkey day advantage. I think last week and the Broncos game were both hiccups for the Cowboys and we were seeing a Dak who just wasn't on his game. I don't expect that this afternoon.
I expect to see a fiery Dak Prescott, maybe a few long passes to Gallup, including one in the end zone. I'm calling two more touchdowns for the Cowboys, one for Zeek and one for Pollard. I predict at least one Diggs interception as well.
As for the Raiders, I think they get a touchdown and maybe a field goal. But the Dallas defense wasn't the problem last week against the Chiefs. The Raiders don't have much on the ground attack and as soon as they put it in the air...that's where Diggs comes in. That one touchdown they get? I think it will be a pass to DeSean Jackson (just assuming Carr learned to not lean too much on Jacobs this time).
Raiders seek to stop their 3-game losing streak
The Raiders have lost their last three games in a row and that was costly for them. They're now in third place (at 5-5) in the AFC West behind the Chiefs and Chargers.
Beyond that, quarterback Derek Carr has thrown five interceptions in the last four games. The Raiders are going to need their defense to perform against the Cowboys. Though the Boys are out Cooper and Lamb, the Raiders will still need Casey Hayward Jr. and Brandon Facyson to protect against Gallup and Wilson. As for the run game, Denzel Perryman and Johnathan Abram will be the Raider's best bet against the Dallas duo of Zeek and TP.
Weather in Texas
As usual, it's a nice day in Arlington with sunny skies and 58 degree temps for this Thanksgiving Day game today. What do we think...will Jerry open the roof?
All about the run game for the Cowboys
Or at least it should be. Considering the Cowboys are out their top two receivers and also considering the way the passing game went (or didn't go, rather) last week...they'd be wise to rely on their RBs.
They have a pretty dynamic duo with Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard, and the Raiders allowed Joe Mixon to rush for 123 yards and two touchdowns against them last week. Zeke will be hungry, so may as well feed him.
Is that a Black Friday sale? Naw, just a bunch of really excited Cowboys fans ready to be louder than the opponent this week!
CeeDee out vs the Raiders
I am sorry to start out this feed with the bad news, but hopefully it goes up from here. It's been confirmed that the Cowboys star WR CeeDee Lamb will sit this one out, which means the Cowboys are out two of their best receivers. Amari Cooper also remains out on the Reserve/Covid-19 list.
The Cowboys are airing on the side of caution with their key players this season and it is likely for the best. They will be needed once the games get tougher and the wins become more significant.
Hello and happy Thanksgiving! Welcome to our live coverage of the 54th edition of the Cowboys annual Thanksgiving Day game!
This year, they'll be taking on the Las Vegas Raiders and I am sure the Cowboys are thankful for the return of Tyron Smith and of course the health of their star quarterback Dak Prescott, who is having the best season of his NFL career.
So as you finish off your turkey and taters, make room for seconds in the NFL and don't get too sleepy because there is plenty of action and we will be covering it all here on AS USA.
