Apparently the Dallas Cowboys are starting to make believers of more than just their die-hard fans. In an article posted today at Yahoo Sports, Columnist MJD predicted that the Cowboys will win the weak NFC East and therefore make the playoffs. Here’s his prediction:
Which brings us to the Cowboys as division champions, which unfortunately for me, I have to justify somehow. I realize that this is an odd time to express this particular feeling, but I’ve got faith in Tony Romo. I don’t believe he’s going to keep blowing games like he has been. And when he’s not blowing games, the Cowboys are pretty good. This is a team that’s beaten San Francisco on the road and Washington at home, and lost to the Jets and Lions by a total of seven points.
It’s a great point, and it’s one I was hoping more of the national media would recognize. The Cowboys have done well against stiff competition. And if Tony Romo can keep his game together, then the other NFC East teams won’t stand a chance.
