NO LESS THAN A SPLIT

Sure the team wants to win every game they play.  But let’s be realistic here.  These Cowboys are battered and bruised.  What they need more than anything is a 2-week hiatus to patch their wounds.

Following the next 2 games, they get that desired reprieve.  However, losing both on the way there would be an awful hole to find themselves buried in.

Dallas must do all in their power to win at least 1 of the 2 contests and reach the bye at 5-5.

Sure that would still be an average record, yet the last 6 games offers a slate capable of a winning record.  To all but guarantee a playoff berth and win the NFC East, all Dallas realistically needs is to land at 9-7.

Philadelphia would have to lock down 5 wins in the next 7 games, and also defeat Dallas in the finale to match the record of a 9-7 Cowboys team.  Not gonna happen, the Eagles certainly won’t win 6 of 8 to finish 9-7.

    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.
