This intriguing cross-conference clash sees a buoyant Dallas face up against a New England side.
Read on for full details on how to watch Cowboys vs Patriots, no matter where you are in the world.
Sitting pretty at the top of the NFC East with a 4-1 record, the Cowboys come into this match off the back of a 44-20 mauling of an injury-hit New York Giants.
That match saw backfield duo Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard in supreme form, with Zeke taking 21 carries for 110 rushing yards.
After back-to-back defeats against the Saints and the Buckaneers, Bill Belichick's Patriots are back on an even keel following their tight 22-25 win over the Houston Texans.
Rookie quarterback Mac Jones has impressed in the early stages of the season, but the first-round pick has shown that there's an occasional error in him, and up against a defence today that currently leads the way for takeaways, the Cowboys will be looking to exploit that inexperience.
