Coming off a terrible loss at the hands of the Kansas City Chiefs and on a short week, the Dallas Cowboys desperately need to get back on track on Thanksgiving. The good news is, wide receiver CeeDeeLamb has a chance to play. What seemed like an improbability after he sustained a concussion in the first half against Kansas City is now an opportunity.
The whole nation, chomping down on turkey legs and mashed potatoes, will be watching, but this would be a massive game for Dallas even if no one tuned in.
There’s a ton on the line, so getting Lamb back would be huge.

The 7-3 Cowboys take on the 5-5 Las Vegas Raiders Thanksgiving afternoon at AT&T Stadium. The Cowboys are coming off the aforementioned loss to the Chiefs, but have also lost two of their last three, and have had some significant struggles on the offensive side of the ball.
Getting Lamb back just a few days after sustaining a concussion may be tricky, but Cowboys chief operating officer Stephen Jones does think there’s a chance.
“He’ll start his protocol right away,” Jones said on 105.3 “The Fan” in Dallas. “He’s doing really well. So, he’ll have an opportunity to play. If he were having issues today, then you’d probably be a little leery, but the fact that so far he’s doing well. But he’ll have to go through testing. So, we won’t really know that until Thursday.”
Head coach Mike McCarthy also weighed in on the situation.
“We’re hopeful he’ll make it through the protocol,” he said, via the team website.
It’s worth pointing out that though Jones was optimistic, he did hedge his bets and kept the door open to either possibility. Still, the fact that Lamb may actually be able to go is pretty big for Dallas.

If Lamb can genuinely go, the Cowboys are going to need him.
It’s not that the 5-5 Raiders in the midsts of a three-game losing streak are all that scary to Dallas, especially at home. The Raiders are scoring just 22.3 points per game while giving up 26.2.
The big issue for the Cowboys is just how discombobulated the offense has looked over the past few weeks. Yes, Dallas rolled the Atlanta Falcons, 43-3, but that’s a team that just got shut out by the Patriots and has seen its quarterbacks throw seven interceptions in two games as a unit.
The issue right now is that especially considering Atlanta’s struggles, that game looks more like an outlier for the Cowboys. That’s especially true for Dak Prescott and the offense. November …read more
