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.
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.
