The Cowboys will then face the Packers. The Packers are in a similar situation as the Bears. They have the same 5-4 as the Bears. They are also competing for a wildcard spot and the Cowboys could be a crucial win for them. Unfortunately, the Packers seem to have the Cowboys number over the years. Can the Cowboys overcome this and keep their playoff hopes alive?
The Redskins will be our second last opponent of the season. We’ve already defeated them once this season, which is key. If the Cowboys can sweep the Redskins, they will secure the divisional tie breaker. The Eagles, Giants, and Redskins already have at least two losses each in the division. With one more divisional win, the Cowboys can guarantee themselves an advantage in the tie breaker.
Finally we face the Eagles in a Week 17 showdown. The Eagles are right on our tails for the division title. This game could determine if the Cowboys will make the playoffs or not. Knowing our luck, it most likely will. The Eagles have an explosive offense, and they’re hot behind Nick Foles. This will be a true test to see if the Cowboys are worth of the playoffs.
I look at the last six games, and each one of them is important. The Raiders give us the best chance to win, but the other five teams we face will be a challenge. Each of them needs a win just as much as us. The Cowboys can’t afford to continue playing sloppily. They need to use the bye week to get themselves together. If they don’t, they could be watching the playoffs from home once again.
