This Cowboys team might boast the more successful run game in the matchup against the Lions, but with quarterback Matthew Stafford under center, Detroit’s passing game is the star. Despite losing one of his favorite targets in the offseason when Calvin Johnson retired, Stafford still has the likes of Golden Tate and Marvin Jones downfield wreaking havoc. Jones is having a career year with 838 receiving yards and could still snag his first 1,000-yard season.

The Lions also have a reliable red zone target in 14-season veteran Anquan Boldin, who leads the team with seven touchdowns. The team doesn’t plan to change its pass-heavy offense despite the Week 14 injury of Stafford. After dislocating his middle finger and tearing some ligaments, the quarterback has committed to finishing the season wearing a glove.

MNF has had a rough time this year with poor matchups and ESPN’s inability to flex games, but they should be happy to cap off the season with this game. Assuming the Cowboys play their starters the whole way, this has real potential for a playoff-type atmosphere as the Lions try to save their season.
