Jaguars vs. Cowboys 12/18/22 Odds and Statistics
Jaguars vs. Cowboys matches are nail-bitingly close more often than not. The Cowboys’ 21-19 win in 2002 was one of the tensest of the season and perfectly encapsulated the close battle that these two sides usually play out against one another.
However, the Cowboys’ ascendency in recent years threatens to put the Jaguars vs. Cowboys series firmly in Dallas’ favor unless the Jaguars can start picking up the pace soon.
Jaguars vs. Cowboys 12/18/22 NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
Only once in the last 12 seasons has Jacksonville finished a season without double-digit losses.
Trying to better this record isn’t the loftiest of goals but it is probably as much as Jaguar fans can hope for this season. A couple of upsets here and there against more prestigious teams have indicated some potential lies buried underneath in some parts of the team. Still, the difficulty of their fixture list with games like Jaguars vs. Cowboys in the latter half of the season means things are unlikely to improve much.
The performances of QB Trevor Lawrence have been an undoubted bright spot in Jacksonville’s season, and he seems to improve every week, as does the team around him. If this season proves to be the springboard that helps elevate Lawrence to his suspected potential, it’ll have been a valuable year for that reason alone.
While it’s unlikely that the side contends for much value this season, if they can continue to build at this pace, then next season, they should have a playoff place wrapped up with ease.
For the most optimistic of Jaguars fans, the current rate of improvement makes a playoff place a reasonable aspiration this year. However, even if their long-term trajectory is certainly upward, they shouldn’t expect much in Jaguars vs. Cowboys 12/18/22.
Things couldn’t be going much better for Dallas fans. Already they’ve earned victories against last year’s Super Bowl teams showing that their 8-3 record is as much down to the side’s rock-solid defense as it is down to their schedule.
Their offensive game is coming on leaps and bounds, too, and if it reaches the lofty heights of their defense, then the side will be unstoppable, and not just in Jaguars vs. Cowboys 12/18/22.
Michael Gallup has come back from surgery not quite at top speed but looking steady and progressing well. They’ve had similar good fortune with QB Dak Prescott’s return. This side is filled with talent that can compete with any other team if players are kept fit for the most part.
It is the Cowboys’ mentality where some wonder if they have what it takes. There’s no denying they’re performing as well as anyone else in the regular season, but there’s a worry – even among fans – that the occasion of the postseason could prove a stumbling block. However, if they have the mental fortitude to deal with the pressure of nearing silverware, then we should expect nothing less than an appearance at the Super Bowl.
Jaguars vs. Cowboys 12/18/22 Prediction
The Jaguars vs. Cowboys is a huge mismatch, and it’ll be a huge surprise if the Jaguars can get something out of this matchup. Having said that, Jacksonville is improving every week, so they shouldn’t be written off completely.
However, even if we shouldn’t write off Jacksonville, chances are that this Jaguars vs. Cowboys 12/18/22 fixture comes around too early for anything other than a victory for the Cowboys.
