NFL Week 9 picks and predictions: Cowboys vs. Falcons

Rob Carr

Experts like Atlanta over Dallas in Week 9.

The Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboys will meet up in primetime this weekend to cap off Week 9's Sunday slate of action.

Atlanta is undefeated on the season and holds a commanding four-game lead in the NFC South. The Falcons were especially impressive in a 30-17 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday.

Meanwhile, Dallas sits at 3-4 on the year and is desperately seeking a win in order to get back in the playoff chase. The Cowboys lost a heartbreaker to division-rival New York last week.

Despite being at home and having a much better record, Atlanta is not that big a favorite. However, most pundits seem confident that the Falcons will get the job done.

Seven of nine experts at CBSSports.com picked Atlanta to win, while all four at Yahoo! also picked the Falcons.

In his weekly picks, SB Nation's Joel Thorman predicted a 34-20 Atlanta victory.
