Battered Cowboys Must Drag 5 Wins Into Bye Week

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

With their bye week looming just 3 weeks away, the Dallas Cowboys must focus on limping into the Week 11 break with playoff oxygen pumping through their lungs.

Sure the Cowboys could lose the next 2 games and still make a strong run for the playoffs after the break.

However, a 6-8 record is a dangerous place to be with stiff games remaining.

Dallas will host the now 5-2 Packers, travel to 4-3 Chicago, and also hit the road to face 2 NFC East rivals on enemy turf.  None of those are fortunate, cakewalk contests.

With mounting injuries and a less than impressive record, Dallas needs to lump these next few weeks into a crucial 2-game season.  They must do all they can to hobble into the break still in a fortunate position to reach the playoffs.

    With the emotions on this team as frayed and split as they are right now, I’m not sure they’ll beat the Vikings this Sunday. New Orleans and the Packers are losses unless angels help Dallas out. The Chicago game could conceivably be as ugly as Detroit. In truth, I’m not sure, in the state of mind they’re in after Detroit, Dallas will be able to beat New York or Washington either. Something or someone has to pull this team together right now because it is more broken and fragmented than I have ever seen it. I don’t know who that someone is or what it’s going to take to jump start this team. It’s a scary thing to consider but 6 and 10 could be the best this team can hope for if they don’t pull it together.
