With the Rams having already beaten the Saints on Thursday Night Football, which Week 16 Sunday game are you most looking forward to watching?

One game I’m excited for is a matchup between two Super Bowl hopefuls when the Dallas Cowboys play a second straight AFC East foe on the road in the Miami Dolphins. Both teams sit at 10-4 as the Cowboys have already locked up a playoff spot while the Dolphins have to wait a little while longer.

In the words of MVP hopeful Dak Prescott, “Here we go,” as the Cowboys got destroyed 31-10 by a surging Bills team in Buffalo. Prescott threw for just 134 yards and was held without a touchdown as Dallas accumulated 195 yards of offense. The normally stout Cowboys defense was outright dominated in the trenches, particularly in the run game. Buffalo racked up 266 yards on the ground as Josh Allen, James Cook and Latavius Murray each ran for a score.

The Dolphins on the other hand had zero issues scoring at will as they crushed the hapless Jets 30-0. Even without All-Pro Tyreek Hill in the lineup, Tua Tagovailoa missed on only three of his 24 pass attempts and threw his lone touchdown pass to third-year wideout Jaylen Waddle. Running back Raheem Mostert rushed in for two scores to increase his league-leading rushing touchdown total to 18.

This is a close matchup to predict but I like the Dolphins in this one. Yes Micah Parsons, this “fake analyst” is rooting for the Cowboys to fail because it’s just so damn funny. The Cowboys are a vastly different team on the road and I don’t expect anything to change here. Dallas should put up more than 10 points this week in what’ll likely be a shootout where Miami pulls away late.

The Dolphins will host the Cowboys at 1:25 p.m. PT.

Miami is a 2-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook and my picks for Tallysight are shown below.

Other Week 16 matchups to watch out for on Sunday include Colts at Falcons, Packers at Panthers (please stink it up again Joe Barry), Browns at Texans, Lions at Vikings, Commanders at Jets in the ultra depressing already eliminated bowl, Seahawks at Titans, Jaguars at Buccaneers and the Cardinals at Bears. Sunday Night Football will feature the Patriots at Broncos in a game Denver has to win to keep their faint playoff hopes alive.

Which games are you most looking forward to this Sunday?
