Cowboys vs Dolphins Free Week 11 Pick

When Tony Romo was injured in Week 2, the Cowboys simply hoped they could hold on until he was eligible to return in Week 11. But with a 0-7 record without Romo under center, even if he is able to physically return for Sunday's Cowboys-Dolphins game, it may be too late to save the season for Dallas.

 

FOX will regionally televise the Cowboys and Dolphins from Miami at 1 p.m. Eastern. According to NFL rules, because the Cowboys had to put him on injured reserve, Romo had to sit out until this week. He is expected to play in the Cowboys-Dolphins game, although the official decision may not come until late in the week.

 

In Romo's absence Dallas tried both Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel at starting quarterback, but the Cowboys couldn't break through in the win column. Last Sunday's 10-6 loss at Tampa Bay may have been the lowest point of the season for the Dallas offense, as it failed to score a touchdown and gained only 216 total yards.

 

Still, even at 2-7 the Cowboys aren't completely out of the playoff discussion. The NFC East leader is 5-5 New York, so Dallas is only 2 1/2 games out of the lead, meaning if Dallas wins the Cowboys-Dolphins game and starts a hot streak with Romo's return, it could climb back into the divisional race relatively quickly.

 

There's no such luck for Miami, which sits at 4-5 but is 5 games behind first place New England in the AFC East. The Dolphins were able to at least stay in the discussion for a Wild Card playoff berth by picking up a come from behind 20-19 win against Philadelphia last Sunday.

 

And Miami may have a chance to go on a run. Starting with the Cowboys-Dolphins game, four of Miami's next six games are at home, and all of them will be against teams with a 5-4 or worse record.

 

Dallas, meanwhile, will play four of its final seven games on the road, starting with Sunday's Cowboys-Dolphins game. And none of the remaining Cowboys opponents have a record worse than 4-5. Romo, who was the starting quarterback in the two wins for the Cowboys to open the season, will have to really spark his team against such a challenging schedule.

 

Miami leads the all-time Cowboys-Dolphins series, 7-6, but Dallas won the most important game between the two in Super Bowl VI, 24-3. Dallas also has won four of the past five meetings between the two teams. Miami has not won at home in a Cowboys-Dolphins game since 1984.
