The Raiders (5-5) are in desperate need of something to start clicking in their offense. They enter this matchup in Dallas having lost three-straight and held to under 17 points in each game over that span. Quarterback Derek Carr started out the season throwing just four interceptions in the team's first six games, but has thrown four picks over this three-game stretch.  Carr is ranked third in passing yards this season (3,041), but 15th in passer rating (96.8). 

The Cowboys (7-3) are coming off a tough 19-9 loss in Kansas City and have now lost two of three for the first time this season. Dallas fell at home to the Broncos, 30-16 in week 9 before bouncing right back at home to blow out the Falcons in week 10, 43-3. Dak Prescott and the Cowboys are hoping to get back to the form that saw before their road loss in K.C. 

This will mark the third straight year the Cowboys are playing on Thanksgiving after a 4:25pm kickoff on the road the previous Sunday. They are 0-2 over that stretch including a 41-13 loss to Washington last season.

Elsewhere in the NFL today, the early game has Andy Dalton and Jared Goff headlining the Bears vs Lions live stream. The late game has Josh Allen take on Trevor Siemian in the Bills vs Saints live stream.

Raiders vs Cowboys live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Raiders vs Cowboys live stream is going to be broadcast on CBS, which is available with most cable packages and on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV

The game starts at 4:30 p.m. ET / 1:30 a.m. PT Thursday (Nov. 25)

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.

Raiders vs Cowboys fantasy picks and odds

Raiders: Tight end Darren Waller is still the most consistent target for Derek Carr. He's Vegas' leading receiver and coming off a six-catch, 116-yard performance against the Bengals. Running back Josh Jacobs has five touchdowns on the season, but hasn't found the end zone during the team's losing streak. He has emerged over the last three weeks however as Carr's favorite check-down target with 14 catches in three weeks.  

Cowboys: Dallas has plenty to offer fantasy owners, but last week wasn't a good example of that. Ezekiel Elliot struggled with only 32 yards against the Chiefs, while Dak Prescott threw two interceptions in a game for the first time this season. Backup running back Tony Pollard ran for 50 yards last week on just seven carries.  

Betting: The Cowboys are 7.5-point favorites to beat the Raiders. The over/under is 50.5.
