A list of extra notes for this week is provided below:

In 2023, the Bills are 7-0 when giving up 20 points or less.
With a victory, the Cowboys, who have won five straight, would guarantee a spot in the playoffs.
The Bills are trying to defeat Dallas for the third time in a row (2015), 2019
In 24 career games, Josh Allen is 19-6 against NFC clubs; he has won five of his previous six.
When Josh Allen hasn’t had a giveaway since 2020, the Bills are 15-0.
Since 2020, the Bills have the best NFL record at 15-2 (8-1 at home) in December and January regular season games.
Buffalo has been 10-0 in regular season games played in Week 15 or later since 2020, which is the NFL’s best record during that time.
In their past 12 games at Highmark Stadium, including postseason ESPN games, the Bills are 9-2.

Storyline to follow: Considering the playoff implications, this game is significant for both teams. However, the outcome of this game may depend on which injured defense is able to force more turnovers against teams that have the ability to score a lot of points. In terms of points per game, the Cowboys’ offensive leads the NFL (32.4), while the Bills’ offense is seventh (26.8). — Getzenberg Alaina

Audacious prediction: Josh Allen, the quarterback for the Bills, will strive for 100 yards and lead the team in rushing against the Cowboys. Though they have struggled with quarterbacks, the Cowboys are one of seven teams who have not allowed a rusher to gain 100 yards this season. Against Dallas, quarterbacks have gained more over thirty yards in the air five times, with Joshua Dobbs recording fifty-five yards in a Week 3 defeat to Arizona. The Cowboys’ run defense has a gap to fill without nose tackle Jonathan Hankins, and Allen will seize it. — Todd Archer

Interesting fact: Tony Romo and Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott are tied for the second-longest stretch in Cowboys history with seven straight games with multiple passing touchdowns (Don Meredith had 12 straight from 1965 to 1966).

What’s in jeopardy: This is a big one. With a victory, Dallas would have a 44% chance to win the NFC East and a 19% chance to secure the top seed in the standings. A setback? Those figures would be, respectively, 20% and 3%. And the Bills might be aiming for both a division title (34% with a win, 13% with a loss) and the playoffs (66% with a win, 30% with a loss).

Something to know for fantasy football: opponents have been given the fifth-fewest passing yards per game by the Cowboys’ secondary. — Moody’s

Nugget of wisdom for bettors: Over the last nine games, the Bills are 2-7 ATS. In the last six Bills games, the under is 5-1.
