The 2022 NFL season has moved to the opening game of Week 17, bringing us to the final Thursday Night Football game of the year. Tonight, the Dallas Cowboys visit the Tennessee Titans in a matchup that, on paper, should make for a great game. Injuries and the game having no impact on the Titans playoff chances given their need to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 18 may make this a tough watch, however.
While the Titans’ position in the NFL playoff picture leads to this game meaning nothing for them, the Cowboys still have a chance to win the NFC East and should be playing this game to keep the pressure on the Philadelphia Eagles. A Cowboys loss would eliminate them from the division title race.
