Thursday afternoon when the Cowboys host the Oakland Raiders in a Thanksgiving Day match-up, Dallas hopes that Tony Romo and the offense can somehow get back their mojo.

The Cowboys expect a banged-up Tony Romo to play Thursday afternoon, but they could be without leading receiver Jason Witten as they host the Oakland for the first time in 11 years.

NFL odds makers are calling Dallas about a two touchdown favorite as the spread in Vegas is at, the Cowboys -14 with the total in the game sitting at 40.

The Dallas offense has only been able to muster a total of 14 points in their last two games. Amazingly enough, they are 1-1 over the two game stretch after beating Washington 7-6 last Sunday.

The 3-7 Raiders ended a three-game skid on Sunday
after inserting quarterback Bruce Gradkowski into the line-up. Gradkowski made his first start of the season, replacing a struggling JaMarcus Russell. The fourth year man out of Toledo, finished an 80-yard drive by completing a tying 29-yard touchdown pass to rookie Louis Murphy with 33 seconds to go.

"I don't know that you can ask for a better closing drive than what he did there," coach Tom Cable said.

While the emergence of Gradkowski leaves the Raiders with questions surrounding their future under center, Cable has indicated he will worry about that later as he tries to give his team its best chance to win.

For the Cowboys, it might be a tough thing, playing a team with nothing to lose. I think Oakland will stay hot on offense and keep this one close.

Take the Raiders getting the 14 points.
