Following a weekend ago’s thrashing to New Zealand, Scotland mentor Gregor Townsend has rolled out four improvements, drafting in Simon Berghan, Grant Gilchrist, Sean Maitland and Ryan Wilson.

Wallabies hooker Stephen Moore will begin his 129th and last test coordinate as he plans to resign from rugby.

“It’s vital that we give him the send-off into retirement that he merits,” said captain Michael Hooper of Moore. “He’s held in such high respect by every one of us here and every one of the players back in Australia who have played with him. It would be incredible for us to turn out this end of the week and show the amount we’ve enhanced since the late spring.” Australia vs Scotland

What are they saying?

Gregor Townsend on Australia 

“It’s moving on – we play the current No 3 team in the world – arguably the best attacking team in the world.

“Australia beat New Zealand a few weeks ago. They were very good against Wales and had a lot of the game on a wet day against England, so we know we are playing one of the form teams in the world right now. If we drop our standards, we are not going to win.

“We’ve got to have the same endeavour [as the All Blacks game], the same mindset, the defensive performance in the first half especially, and what we did in the second half attack-wise – and then take it to another level.

“That’s the benefit of having another game this week. It is great for our guys that they get to go again. Yes, they are disappointed that they didn’t get the win, but we have another opportunity as a group to play a brilliant side and work to find a way to win.” Australia vs Scotland

“They have improved a lot since then. They are a team on the up. The longer they have been together has helped them. They have excellent coaches. Michael Cheika being one, Stephen Larkham being another.

“Their fitness has improved a lot. I know that was something Southern Hemisphere commentators were talking about with Super Rugby. They look a very fit team. It’s the last game of their tour. They are probably hoping for dry weather given how wet it was last week [at Twickenham]. Australia vs Scotland

It appears like everlastingly back when the group was on a three-diversion win streak and seemed to blast their way towards a conceivable confrontation later in the season for a conceivable maintenance of the NFC East crown. Two embarrassing misfortunes later, and three on the season in general, they’re presently 5-5 looking to tourniquet the dying.

The once powerful Cowboys are presently anything other than, as they hook for a shot at a Wild Card spot. Remaining in their quick way are the Los Angeles Chargers, a group once the fool of the NFL prior in the year has gone ahead solid starting late as they incline the other way of America’s Team. A look at this matchup preceding the season gave the presence of a cupcake amusement for the Cowboys, yet hurl that sweet out of the closest window since this is turning out to be a back rear way bar brawl.

Cowboys vs Chargers

The redeeming quality for a Cowboys’ group clubbed by damage is the potential return of both All-Pro’s Tyron Smith and Dan Bailey to the overlap on Thanksgiving. That’ll absolutely help the crashed offense discover its way back to the tracks, however the barrier is another issue completely.

They appeared in the main half against the powerful Eagles they could close down an exuberant offense, however what occurred in the second half was absolutely humiliating for the unit all in all.Cowboys vs Chargers

After allowing only one touchdown and forcing the Eagles to go 0/5 on third downs over the first 30 minutes of football, they went on to allow five in the second half along with 30 points as their bitter rival flew off to a league-best 9-1 record at their expense. Now come the Chargers, having won four of their last six and are fresh off of a 54-24 beatdown on the Buffalo Bills.

For a Cowboys’ defense struggling to stop teams without Sean Lee, this is worrisome to say the least. The Chargers aren’t world beaters offensively but they do average just over 22 points per game, which could easily turn into 30+ with Lee on the sideline.

The Cowboys can ill-afford a third straight loss that would place them at 5-6, which would virtually demand the run the table to even have a shot at an NFC Wild Card berth. They’re out of sorts offensively and inconsistent defensively, looking very much like the .500 team they currently are. A victory on Turkey Day would go a long way to keep their hopes for January alive, and preventing a mountain of indigestion in their fanbase. Cowboys vs Chargers

Can they defeat the Chargers? Absolutely. The real question, however, is will they? Stay tuned.

The Cowboys will host the Chargers will clash at AT&T Stadium on Nov. 23 at 3:30pm CST on CBS.

The lead official will be Jerome Boger with Tracy Wolfson reporting from the sidelines, while Jim Nantz and Cowboys’ legend Tony Romo rain down commentary and analysis from the booth. If you’ll miss the visual but want to listen in, tune into Sirius/XM channels 88 (WW1), 82 (LAC) or 83 (DAL).

Those who want to become richer, or poorer depending on your luck, should note oddsmakers put the Cowboys and Chargers as even in a pick ’em scenario, according to Sportsline, with the over/under at +48.5. With the Cowboys recent struggles battling a hot Chargers’ team, it’s anyone’s guess how this one turns out.

Cowboys vs Chargers

Cowboys vs Chargers Live | That isn’t a mistype. When halftime hits, the Dallas Cowboys turn out to be extremely lost. I don’t know what is examined in the locker room, however it is nothing valuable. What’s more, this isn’t only a previous two amusement event, these burdens have been available all year.

It positively isn’t an ideal opportunity to begin looking at running Jason Garrett away, yet we need to call a spade a spade. The play-calling and changes essentially have not been satisfactory. It appears as though adversaries are two stages in front of Dallas after halftime. Cowboys vs Chargers Live

Last week Dak Prescott had his worst game as a professional and it’s not even close. I’ve written numerous times that without Ezekiel Elliott behind him, Dak would be able to prove himself capable of running the offense. Am I still confident in his abilities? Yes, but my optimism has been significantly drained. Losing arguably the best left tackle in football is obviously going to hurt, but Dak has just looked lost. In fact, the entire offense has been horrifyingly stagnant. Cowboys vs Chargers

Cowboys vs Chargers

The road doesn’t get much easier either, as the Los Angeles Chargers rank eighth in the league in points allowed per game and pass yards allowed per game. The Chargers have been turning over a new leaf after starting 0-4, going 4-2 since then. They are riding a huge wave of momentum after a gigantic win against the Buffalo Bills last week, with a final score of 54-24.

Both teams are trending in opposite directions. In fact, Las Vegas seems to think the same as the Chargers are favored in the contest by 2.5 points. The Cowboys being underdogs at home on Thanksgiving sounds like some sick twisted joke, but unfortunately that is the reality we have found ourselves in. Dallas’ season may very well depend on the outcome of this game. Cowboys vs Chargers Live

Dallas’ defense has been in deep trouble ever since Sean Lee’s injury in Atlanta. The Cowboys currently rank 20th in points allowed, and 26th in pass yards allowed per game. Teams just know how to get through the defense and Phillip Rivers will certainly be ready to air the ball out. It is absolutely crucial that Dallas’ pass rush can create enough of a presence to keep Rivers from hitting stride in order to help the young secondary. I fear that if this game turns into a shootout where LA lights the scoreboard up, the Cowboys will not be able to keep pace.

Regardless, this Thanksgiving day game means so much to the Dallas Cowboys franchise. When you consider the fact that this game has a major impact on their year moving forward, I see the Cowboys fighting hard to win a very close, competitive match. Cowboys vs Chargers

Prediction: Dallas Cowboys 24  –  LA Chargers 17

A win for Juve would place them into the last 16, yet a misfortune could abandon them in threat of passing up a major opportunity for capability to the knockout rounds if Sporting CP beat Olympiakos in the gathering’s other conflict.

Centre-back Gerard Pique will be available again for Barcelona having missed the 0-0 draw with Olympiakos last time out in the Champions League due to suspension.

The Catalan giants have conceded just one goal so far in the competition this season, and the return of the Spain international will help Barca in their attempts to keep another clean sheet.

Juve have plenty of firepower to test Barca, though, and Gonzalo Higuain is in particularly fine form having netted six times in his last five appearances. Juventus vs Barcelona

Paulo Dybala also ended his three-game drought by scoring in Juve’s 3-2 Serie A loss to Sampdoria on Sunday, but he is yet to score in 353 minutes of Champions League action this term.

The defeat to Samp was hardly ideal preparation for Juve, and they will be desperate to bounce back against Barca.

In such a scenario, Juve would still have the advantage as they edge the Portuguese outfit on head-to-head results—the first tie-breaker criteria should they end up level on points.

But it would be a nervy situation for the Turin club to head into the last round of fixtures unsure whether they will be in the knockout rounds.

They have more than enough quality to cause Barcelona some serious problems, as they proved last term with a 3-0 aggregate defeat of the Blaugrana in the quarter-finals.

However, an impressive defensive performance will be needed to keep out Lionel Messi, Suarez et al, and Higuain and Dybala will have to be clinical when presented with chances at the other end of the field.

Falcons vs Seahawks

Falcons vs Seahawks | Week 11 in the NFL closes with a “Monday Night Football” blending of groups that are at an intersection because of a mix of key wounds and a Super Bowl aftereffect as the Seattle Seahawks (6-3) have the Atlanta Falcons (5-4) at CenturyLink Field. Seattle got back on track a week ago, beating Arizona 22-16 out and about on Thursday night in a severely physical amusement. Atlanta is falling off one of its better exhibitions of the seasons subsequent to directing Dallas 27-7 at home. The Falcons aren’t out of the NFC South race at this time, however can’t stand to fall any further behind the Saints (8-2) or Panthers (7-3).

For Seahawks, now like never before they will need to depend on the “following man up” hypothesis as a week ago’s win came at a substantial cost. All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman is out for the season with a torn Achilles and four-time Pro Bowl security Kam Chancellor is likely done too with neck damage. The totality of the wounds on edge side of the ball is ending up extremely tricky and the unit’s profundity will be tried whatever remains of the season. Therefore, it will be dependent upon Russell Wilson and the offense to get a move on and convey this group as Seattle can tie Los Angeles for first in the NFC West with a win today around evening time. Falcons vs Seahawks

The last time these two teams met was in the Divisional Round of last season’s playoffs. Atlanta won 36-20 behind 338 passing yards and three touchdowns from Matt Ryan. Now the 2016 MVP gets another shot at the Seahawks and won’t have to worry about dealing with Sherman or Chancellor.

Atlanta at Seattle

Kickoff: Monday, Nov. 20 at 8:30 p.m. ET
TV Channel: ESPN
Spread: Seattle -2.5

Falcons vs Seahawks

Three Things to Watch

1. Seattle offense vs. Atlanta defense

As has already been mentioned, the Seahawks’ offense will need to pick up the slack as the defense has been ravaged by injuries. Unfortunately, for Russell Wilson(above, right) and company, they could be getting Atlanta at an inopportune time. The Falcons held Dallas to just seven points and 233 total yards, while sacking Dak Prescott eight times and forcing two turnovers. After that performance it will be interesting to see how Seattle offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell decides to attack Atlanta. The Seahawks really need to find a way to run the ball more effectively, if anything to keep the Falcons’ pass rush at bay. You could see Seattle try to mix in some no huddle or add some tempo to try and wear down Atlanta’s defensive line. Also, look for plenty of zone read plays that give Wilson the option to run considering Cam Newton finished with 86 rushing yards against the Falcons in the Panthers’ 20-17 win a couple of weeks ago. One person Wilson definitely needs to keep a close eye on is Atlanta’s Adrian Clayborn, who exploded for six of the Falcons’ eight sacks last Sunday. That performance by Clayborn was the second-highest sack total for an individual player in the NFL since Derrick Thomas back in 1990. Falcons vs Seahawks

2. Matt Ryan and the Falcons’ passing game

Everything sets up on paper for Ryan to build off last week’s very efficient performance (22-for-29, 215 yds., 2 TDs, INT) against the Cowboys. The Legion of Boom right is a shell of itself with Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor both out and Earl Thomas also battling his own injuries. Rookie cornerback Shaquill Griffin is going to have to grow up quickly as Julio Jones, Mohamed Sanu and Taylor Gabriel will look to take advantage of Seattle’s depleted secondary. Atlanta may even be more inclined to throw the ball rather than try to run it with leading rusher Devonta Freeman sidelined because of a concussion. It will be interesting to see the game plan that offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian comes up with. Again, Ryan had considerable success in his last game against the Seahawks in the playoffs, and that was with Seattle’s defense much more intact. Falcons vs Seahawks

3. Seattle front seven

Linebacker Bobby Wagner is arguably playing the best football of his career and he is going to have to step up along with the rest of the Seahawks’ front seven moving forward. This Seattle defense is not going to be able to rely upon the secondary being able to provide lock-down pass coverage so expect for defensive coordinator Kris Richard to come up with different ways to put pressure on the quarterback. With Michael Bennett, Sheldon Richardson, and Frank Clark playing well along the defensive line the Seahawks have the personnel to be more aggressive with blitzes but there is a risk to this strategy. If you don’t get to the quarterback, you could give up big plays, especially going against an All-Pro-caliber passer like Ryan and his collection of pass catchers.

 

Final Analysis

 

Normally, a “Monday Night Football” game in Seattle would present the real possibility of a blowout where fans nationwide tune out early. However, this game should be one that goes down the wire as long as both teams take care of the football. Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan should each have plenty of opportunities to produce enough big plays through the air that this game could feature plenty of scoring. Despite all of the injuries on defense, look for the Seahawks to sneak away with another very close win at home thanks to some late-game heroics from Doug Baldwin or Jimmy Graham as Seattle ties Los Angeles for first place in the NFC West while Atlanta falls to .500. Falcons vs Seahawks
