The Dallas Cowboys played an amazing game and gained a victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. For once they dominated on all three phases Special Teams, Defense, and Offense. This game was possibly the best game of the season, although they struggled at times on offense consistently letting Romo take hits, they came along and displayed the talent everyone’s been raving about. Furthermore, the Cowboys are back in the playoff talks, but they need to maintain their momentum because a loss next week can just as easily knock them out off the picture for good.
The Cowboys have much to look forward to now that their through the toughest part of their schedule, they now hold the second easiest schedule in the NFL in terms of wins and losses, something that should work in their favor. As for the much hated New York Giants, they still have Baltimore, Atlanta, New Orleans and Green Bay on their schedule, which will determine the outcome of the NFC East.
While it may seem the Cowboys are set up to take back the NFC East, we cant get ahead of ourselves because this is still the same team that always finds a way to lose to teams that shouldn’t be a threat. Let’s not forget that Dallas had a similar opportunity last year, when they had a chance to take the NFC East they were sitting at 7-4 in week 12. They went on to lose a game against the Arizona Cardinals, followed by a loss to the Giants; they ended their season 8-8 losing four of their last five games.
Many can argue that this Cowboys team is much improved from last year, they have a solid defense and an offense that finally seems to be coming alive, but the fact of the matter is the Cowboys are still under the same coaching staff that ran them to the ground last year. Unless the Cowboys put up another performance similar to the one they did on Sunday, don’t expect this team to change. They got what should be an easy game against the Cleveland Browns but if they fail, this season will continue down the roller coaster path it has been on since the season has started. But, if they win big then it may be signs of greater things to come.
