Cowboys vs. Falcons, Week 9 odds: Atlanta is 5-point favorite

Rich Schultz

The Atlanta Falcons are picked as 5-point favorites against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Atlanta Falcons are picked as 5-point favorites to beat the Dallas Cowboys at home on Sunday, according to the oddsmakers. This is a low spread considering the Falcons' are 7-0 on the season and the Cowboys have struggled with a 3-4 record.

Tony Romo has 13 interceptions on the season, compared to just nine touchdown passes. The Atlanta Falcons have the 10th-ranked pass defense in the league when it comes to giving up passing yards. Atlanta also has 10 team interceptions and just as many forced fumbles this season.

The Cowboys are still trying to get all the pieces to come together with Jason Garrett calling the plays, Romo leading the offense, and Dez Bryant the enigmatic figure.

Atlanta is coming off a 30-17 win against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cowboys are coming off a 29-24 loss to the New York Giants, who they beat in the first game of the season.
