COWBOYS WIN PRICELESS

Yes Dallas would be just a game ahead of Detroit with a win, and still holding the edge for the 2nd wildcard slot.  However, there is a difference between the two teams.

While the overall records are the same, the conference records are far from that. Dallas is 4-0 in the NFC, while Detroit is 3-2.  As a matter of fact, the other teams currently in the race all have 2 or more NFC losses.

With a Cowboys win on Sunday, not only would they move to a respectable 5-3 overall, they’d also gain a rock solid advantage sitting at 5-0 in conference play.

An undefeated conference record half way through the season is gold where tie-breakers are concerned.

Even more important would be the head-to-head win over Detroit in the event they had the same record in the end.  Head-to-head victories are the trump card in determining which team gets the playoff nod.
