Two weeks. Not that long in reality but depending on your perspective, it can feel like forever. Two weeks ago, just prior to the painful-to-watch beat down the Cowboys suffered at the hands of the Saints, the Cowboys were in the catbird’s seat. No other team in the division had a winning record, let alone pose much of a threat to taking the lead for a playoff spot away from Dallas. Now? Philadelphia has not lost and lead the division and the Giants have won both of their games as well and can tie the Cowboys.
One thing we will know for sure after Sunday afternoon is where the Cowboys are mentally. There is absolutely no excuse for this team to not come out with fire, energy and anger. Everything is right in front of them. A divisional game on the road. A hated rival. Trash talk all week from the other side. A chance to get the division lead back and control your own destiny. An opportunity to bury the Giants, probably for good. What more could you want? Jason Garrett prefers that the players do not answer the hype through the media but they damn sure need to answer it on the field this week. Here is this week’s edition of the Four Quarters that break down key points that will lead to a Dallas victory and get this season back on track.
