NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Dallas. According to latest NFL trends, the Cowboys are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games following a bye week, while the Panthers are 2-5 against the number in their last seven home games. Dallas is certainly talented enough to make a postseason run but if the Cowboys are to turn things around they’re going to have to start today. Carolina has a suspect defense and Cam Newton will turn the ball over in pressure moments. Tony Romo has to play a clean game and elevate his teammates. With this essentially being a pick’em game, take the better team, even though the Cowboys are on the road. (After all, it’s not like the Panthers have taken advantage of home cooking lately.)
