#1 Dak Prescott vs. Jared Goff: More passing yards? More passing touchdowns?

I expect Mike McCarthy to dial up the passing game this year between the 20s. Jason Garrett was a lot more passive through the air and that should change. Problem is, Dak is a bootleg weapon inside the five and Zeke is always dangerous near the goal line. 

I like Dak for yards and Goff for touchdowns. 

#2 Ezekiel Elliott's rushing yards? Rushing touchdowns?

< 50, 50-84, 85-114, 115+ 

0, 1, 2+

Hmmm. We already discussed Dallas' shift to a more aerial attack, so I can't go 115+ yards with Zeke. Let's knock it down a peg and go between 85 and 114 yards with one rushing score. 

#3 Total points 1st Half?

< 19, 19-21, 22-24, 25-27, 28-30, 31+

How low can you go? I'll go to the bottom and say less than 19 points. Tackling may be a concern, but I'm more concerned with these offenses getting into rhythm early. 

#4 Most receiving yards?

Amari Cooper, Cooper Kupp, CeeDee Lamb, Robert Woods, Michael Gallup, Josh Reynolds, Any other Cowboys player, Any other Rams player

Cooper Kupp! Why not. Amari Cooper will be a popular pick, but Kupp is no stranger to breaking a big one from the slot. He's also been Jared Goff's security blankie for years. Give me seven or eight targets and we may get there. 

#5 Last touchdown of the game?

Ezekiel Elliott, Cam Akers, Amari Cooper, Cooper Kupp, CeeDee Lamb, Robert Woods, Any other Cowboys player, Any other Rams player

How about a Dak Prescott keeper? Go big or go home. 

#6 Longest field goal of the game?

< 23 yards, 23-32, 33-40, 41-49, 50-54, 55+ 

A 41-49 yard boot seems about right. Rams coach Sean McVay definitely has some riverboat gambler in him and I don't expect L.A. to attempt any super long field goals. 

#7 Winner? 

Dallas Cowboys or Los Angeles Rams?

I may be on an island here, but I feel like the Cowboys are just a smidge overvalued heading into the season opener. There's always hype around Dallas, but it feels like even more than usual this year. Give me Los Angeles 27-21 on Sunday Night.
