It was almost unimaginable at the beginning of the year, but the NFL Super Bowl Live Stream 2016 NFL season could come down to the Oakland Raiders and Dallas Cowboys. Two of football’s most popular teams sit atop their respective conferences with a legitimate chance to win Super Bowl LI.Oakland and Dallas solidified themselves as top title contenders with big wins in Week 12. The Cowboys virtually eliminated the Washington Redskins as a threat to win the NFC East by defeating their rivals on Thanksgiving, and the Raiders maintained their AFC West lead by defeating the defending NFC Champion Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Event: Super Bowl Live
Date:Sunday, February 5
Place: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas
Sunday’s victory all but guaranteed the Raiders will end the NFL’s second-longest playoff drought. Oakland hasn’t been to the postseason in 14 years, and they last had a winning record in 2002. Their win over the Panthers put them at 9-2 on the season, tying them with the New England Patriots for the best record in the AFC.While the Cowboys have had much more success than the Raiders in recent years, their rise to the top of the NFL might be even more unlikely.
Dallas’ chances of being a contender seemingly ended when Tony Romo suffered an injury in the preseason, but rookie quarterback Dak Prescott has exceeded all expectations. Leading the Cowboys to an NFL-best 10-1 record heading into Week 13, Prescott is one of the top MVP candidates.
Dallas has become the clear favorite in the NFC. The Seattle Seahawks are their biggest competition, but a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday dropped them to 2.5 games behind the Cowboys for the No. 1 seed in the NFC. The New York Giants are two games behind Dallas, but the Cowboys have been much more impressive with less than one-third of the regular season left to be played.The NFL playoff picture is becoming clearer for many teams, and after the Week 13 results on Sunday, a few squads have made their dream run towards the postseason become a bit more of a reality.CBS Sports reports, after falling out of the playoff picture last week, the defending world champion Denver Broncos have regained the sixth seed back from the Miami Dolphins following NFL Super Bowl Live Stream their 20-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Denver offense once again left little to be desired, but the defense is proving that they are just as good if not better than they were last season.
Denver intercepted Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles twice and held the Jaguars to 333 total yards in the win.Another team who has jumped into the NFL playoff picture is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.The Bucs improved to 7-5 on the season following a 28-21 win over the Chargers in San Diego. The victory, along with a Redskins loss vs. the Arizona Cardinals, officially put Tampa in the No. 6 position in the NFC playoff race.Won’t that be something if Tampa Bay makes the playoffs? Not many experts were predicting that scenario back in July.
Along with the surprising Buccaneers, the Detroit Lions also kept rolling Sunday afternoon. Detroit strengthened their grip on a possible playoff position as they took down the New Orleans Saints 28-13.The Lions are a very hard team to get a read on.They have zero running game and statistically they rank in the bottom half of the league in many categories, but all that matters is wins or losses and right now Detroit is 8-4 and leading the NFL North by two games over Green Bay and Minnesota.The biggest reason for the Lions success is because of quarterback Matt Stafford.An outsider for the 2016 NFL MVP, Stafford NFL Super Bowl Live threw for 341 yards and two touchdowns while leading the Lions to their seventh win in eight games. While those numbers are impressive, what is more incredible is how Stafford seems to do this week after week on a team that averages under 80 rushing yards per game.
Stafford is having his best season as a pro and with a couple more victories, the Lions could be NFC North champs and host a playoff game for the first time since January 5, 1991. Detroit beat the Cowboys that day, 38-6.While the NFL playoff standings keeps changing, so do the odds to win Super Bowl 51.The New England Patriots are still the favorites to win the 2017 NFL Super Bowl, however, they have taken a step back a bit in the odds.The Pats were listed at 7/5 odds just a week to 10 days ago, but after the news that tight end Rob Gronkowski will miss the rest of the season due to a back injury, the odds have fallen to 11/4, according to a FOX Business report.New England always seems to find a way to win, which is a sign of a great team, but losing Gronk will be hard to overcome.
The top five favorites to win the big game this February from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas, look this way. The Patriots at 11/4, or basically 3/1, followed by the red hot Dallas Cowboys at 4/1, the Seattle Seahawks at 13/2 and a three-team log jam between the Steelers, Raiders and Falcons at 15/1.Below is a look at the current Watch NFL playoff seeds, standings and first round matchups if the season ended today. You can check out the current Super Bowl 51 odds for each team by clicking here.The Dallas Cowboys are arguably the most polarizing franchise in the National Football League. And really, it’s easy to see why. “America’s Team” has a massive, loyal fanbase. They’re also the most hated team in the NFL outside of the New England Patriots.
Last year, injuries to key players snowballed into Dallas being one of the biggest laughingstocks in professional sports. In 2016, Cowboys are taking the league by storm; they’re currently the proud owners of the best overall record in the NFL (11-1). Owner/General Manager Jerry Jones wisely (and uncharacteristically) listened to his personnel executives and scouts (led by his son, Stephen) when it came to assembling the team’s roster. As a direct result, the Cowboys now have arguably the best (and definitely most balanced) offense in the NFL — all built through the NFL draft.
Since the 2010 NFL Draft, Dallas has landed three perennial All-Pro offensive linemen and an All-Pro wide receiver (left tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick, right guard Zack Martin, and Dez Bryant). In the 2016 draft, the Cowboys hit the jackpot twice with running back Ezekiel Elliott (first round) and quarterback Dak Prescott (fourth round), who are both NFL MVP and Offensive Rookie of the Year NFL Super Bowl 51th live Stream candidates in 2016.Despite their success this season, not everyone is convinced that Dallas is a legitimate world championship contender. With that being said, here are seven reasons why the Cowboys have what it takes to win Super Bowl 51 this coming February.
Running back Ezekiel Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott have dominated the headlines, but neither player would be where they are in their respective rookie seasons without the play of the Dallas offensive line. In fact, this group of unsung heroes is so outstanding that they are now being mentioned as a potential candidate to win the 2016 NFL MVP award as a group.While that likely won’t happen (even though technically it is allowed), we still fully expect Travis Frederick, Tyron Smith, and ZackMartin to earn All-Pro honors at the end of the season. And what’s even crazier about the Cowboys’ play up front is the fact that they have lacked second-year guard La’el Collins for most of the season.
History has proven that winning the time of possession battle almost always equates to success in the Super Bowl 2017 Live NFL Online. In 2016, the 11-1 Cowboys rank second in the league with an average time of possession of 32:03 per game. They have held the ball longer than their opponents in all but four of their games; one of those deficits was just 20 seconds (in their Week 6 win over the Green Bay Packers).By consistently winning this facet of the game, the Cowboys are helping their defense stay fresh by keeping them off the field and wearing down opposing defenses at the same time.At the very least, Elliott is one of the top three (joined by David Johnson of the Arizona Cardinals and Le’Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers) running backs in the league today. The former Ohio State Buckeye currently leads the league in rushing yards. He also has a legitimate chance of breaking the NFL’s rookie rushing record. If that weren’t enough, Elliott is also one of the top contenders for the 2016 NFL MVP award.
If he can remain healthy for the remainder of the season, “Zeke” is the type of back who will be extremely difficult to contain when the postseason comes around.The Dallas Cowboys are 11-1 and just punched their ticket to the NFL Super Bowl Live playoffs.They can now win the NFC East crown and take one step further to a first-round bye and home field advantage throughout by downing the rival Giants on Sunday. Proving they can win in any number of ways, this iteration of the Cowboys is dangerous to all comers.There are some comers that are also dangerous to the Cowboys, though.The Cowboys are an insane 11-1 after escaping the Minnesota Vikings!
