It was a great weekend for the Dallas Cowboys as they added another win to this rollercoaster season. This win gave Dallas fans hope but when will this HOPE turn into certainty?
Lately it looks like the Dallas Cowboys have been giving it their all but only when they’re under pressure and have lost the lead. Especially when it comes to the offense, they start off slow in the game but as they quickly fall behind they seem to get grounded and play better than ever before.
Should the Cowboys always have to be losing in order to get their head back in the game and win? No. Dallas fans deserve a team that is confident in winning and not a team that’s barely cutting it close. With the defense down a few players including linebackers, Sean Lee and Bruce Carter, the defense can no longer carry the team. If the Cowboys really want a chance at the playoffs it is up to the offense now to lead the team into victory.
The Cowboys got four games remaining and not a single one will be an easy or a for sure win. With many obstacles facing them like the declining health of their defense and a wishy-washy offense, Dallas can only focus on the positive opportunities they are given.
With other teams in the NFC East losing, the Dallas Cowboys gain more opportunities to make the playoffs. The New York Giants suffered a devastating lose to the Washington Redskins which puts the Dallas Cowboys within reach of the NFC East crown. Dallas for a second year straight will have the opportunity to make the playoffs if they manage to win all their remaining games including the game at Washington against the Redskins.
The Redskins are also in playoff contention but they still need to face the Baltimore Ravens and the down but risky Philadelphia Eagles. As for the Giants they still have to face the Atlanta Falcons and the Baltimore Ravens, which doesn’t fair well for them but who cares it does wonders for the Cowboys and their chances for a playoffs spot.
The Dallas Cowboys do not have a for sure spot in the playoffs this year but they are none the less promising contenders. This week the Cowboys play on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Bengals are fighting for a playoff spot as well. If Cowboys succeed on the road against the Bengals on Sunday, it may give our offense the much needed boost of confidence and motivation to keep on winning.
