I'm following how Oakland does, Carr is definitely an up and coming QB, their GM Reggie McKenzie was with the Packers, and I think he is doing very well. He walked into a bad situation with their draft picks (or lack thereof) and a mess with the cap, too. He knows how to build a team, you can't mortgage the future, and have only high priced players and free agents. Oakland will be relevant again.

Tell me your predictions.
Seattle vs. Denver or NE.

What makes you think Seattle can win at Dallas in the NFC title game?
Seattle is 2-3 on the road averaging only 15.3 points.

Dallas has no defense, their weakness will be exploited. Some of the games this season, they've barely even won, Dak and Zeke have bailed them out. I don't see a playoff Seattle team losing to Dallas, not at all. Seattle's offense and defense are both on point.

Seattle will come alive down the stretch. The better question is with Denver. Can they even stay in the wild card race? They may very well lose their last 3 games. In fact, we could see 2 AFC North teams in the playoffs, as unlikely as that seemed a couple of weeks ago.

Dallas has no defense and held Minnesota to 15pts?

Looking at the stat page this morning the Cowboys are third in the NFC for fewest points allowed with 228.

Denver's win against Jacksonville was, um, uninspiring. They play Tennessee Sunday, then their next three games are New England, Kansas City, and Oakland.

The Broncos O-line better improve in a hurry. They won't be facing any Blake Bortals in those games.

Minnesota has one of the worst offenses in the league right now.No run game and they have error prone Bradford as a QB with maybe 2 playmakers (Diggs and Rudolph).

The Cowboys defense is better than most give them credit for but they don't make the ESPN type plays.. They get little pressure on the QB and force few turnovers.. I would love to see more pressure on the QB but they just don't have that Elite edge rusher on the team... Something Jerry will certainly rectify in the offseason. hopefully

The lack of turnovers is concerning but it also is a product of fewer opposing teams offensive snaps. The Cowboys offense is averaging 20 more snaps than their opponents per game which is 20 less opportunities to turn the ball over.. That is obviously part of it but QB pressures is probably the single biggest factor in getting turnovers... and that's problem #1 for the Cowboys defense.

The Cowboys offense has been able to counter the lack of turnovers by the defense by NOT turning the ball over themselves and controlling the ball. As long as they don't turn the ball over and they are able to run the ball effectively, they will be a tough out in the playoffs. That sounds like a formula for ever team in the playoffs.
