After an embarrassing loss to the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving Day, rumors surrounding Jason Garrett's future with the Cowboys continue to swirl. Come Thursday night, he'll need to do everything he can to make sure Dallas comes out on top.
Things won't be easy, though, as the Cowboys will head to Soldier Field to try and take down the Chicago Bears and their passionate fans. For Dallas, they'll look to establish the run with Ezekiel Elliott early on, while Dak Prescott will need to take care of the football.
With the Bears, Mitchell Trubisky has been inconsistent as ever. The Cowboys will look to keep his life miserable by putting pressure on him. Which Trubisky will show up?
Unfortunately for Chicago fans, we think the struggling Mitchell will show up, so we're taking the Cowboys to win straight up.

Kansas City @ New England: 08/12/19 @ 4:25 PM ET
What more could you ask for in a Game of the Week? The Chiefs and Pats will meet for the first time since New England won a thriller in KC last January to move on to the Super Bowl. What does Sunday have in store for us?
Well, the Patriots offense has been an issue for them this year, while their elite defense has been paving the way. That same D will need to be on absolute fire this weekend against Patrick Mahomes and Co.
Kansas City is coming off a dominant 40-9 home win against the Oakland Raiders, while New England suffered a tough loss on the road to the Houston Texans in Sunday Night Football.
The Pats, as the home team, are favored by three points. However, their offensive woes could come back to haunt them against the Chiefs. Call it an upset. We're picking KC to come out on top.
Week 14 parlay free pick: Saints + Vikings + Seahawks
Hold on to your hats, NFL gamblers, as we've got quite the three-team parlay cooking for Week 14. Which teams are we high on this week? New Orleans, Minnesota and Seattle, that's who.
The Saints will host the 49ers, who suffered a loss to the Ravens last week. Drew Brees and the high-octane offense will look to keep their strong play going.
The Vikings lost to Seattle on the road during Monday night football, but should be able to bounce back this weekend against the Detroit Lions. In the NFC West, Seattle will head to L.A. to take on the Rams.
These two teams hate each other, but the Seahawks keep finding ways to be victorious. We think that will continue on Sunday, as they'll keep increasing their Super Bowl odds.
• Saints moneyline (1.66) over the 49ers
• Vikings moneyline (1.14) over the Lions
• Seahawks moneyline (1.84) over the Rams
While these games could be close, minus Minnesota against Detroit, look for this parlay to work some magic for you this weekend.
New York @ Philadelphia: 9/12/19 @ 8:15 PM ET
If ever there was a must-win game for the Eagles, it'd be their Monday Night Football showdown at home with the New York Giants. Despite holding a 5-7 record, Philly is only one game back of Dallas in the NFC East standings.
Come Monday, they'll host Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley and the 2-10 Giants. This is Philly's chance to get back on track, especially after suffering an embarrassing loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 13.
Carson Wentz will have no excuses if he can't power Philly's offense against New York's defense, a unit which allowed four touchdown passes to be tossed by Aaron Rodgers in the snow at MetLife Stadium last Sunday.
With the pressure on the Eagles, we think Wentz will step up and remind folks just how good he can be. Philly's NFL odds have them as 8.5-point favorites. We're picking them to cover the spread in a big win.
