In all fairness, this is not the same Dolphins team that started 0-7.
They've railed off three straight wins and only allowed 20 points total across those games.
Two of those teams, the Chiefs and Bills, had winning records when Miami defeated them.
Also noteworthy is the fact five of their losses came by a combined 27 points, a point differential of less than a touchdown.
Matt Moore has six touchdowns and one interception in their three wins, and Reggie Bush has added four rushing touchdowns in the same span.
The team should play better against the Cowboys than their 3-7 record would have us suggest.
Still, the Cowboys are "America's Team," and Thanksgiving is as American as it gets.
They, too, have won three straight after a sporadic 3-4 start to 2011. They are quite efficient on offense, with a top 10 team in both rushing and passing yardage.
During the three-game win streak, Tony Romo has thrown eight touchdowns and no interceptions. He has elite capabilities, and enough teams have been burned by his arm to know that.
Though Miami will put on a good show, the Cowboys should have enough on defense to contain Moore, Bush and Brandon Marshall.
Likewise, the Dolphins' sometimes-porous defense won't be able to handle Romo's current momentum.
Prediction: Dallas Cowboys win, 27-17
