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.
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.
