All Is Not Lost For the Cowboys

It’s amazing how fast the mood changes during a tight NFC East race. One minute the Dallas Cowboys are on the top of the world and no one can beat them. Next thing you know, they’ve dropped to second place with only three games remaining. Sticky situation they find themselves in for sure.

Have you ever noticed that the NFC East always seems to come down to the last game of the season? It’s not over till it’s over folks. Let’s breakdown the final three weeks and you’ll see there is still hope for these Dallas Cowboys.

For Dallas, their three remaining games are home against Green Bay, at Washington and the home finale against Philadelphia. The possible slip-ups with these three games come from complacency. There’s no reason Dallas can’t win out and finish the year at 10-6. Sure, it won’t be a walk in the park by any means, but being down one game in the division is no picnic with only three remaining, so the only thing Dallas can do is win games and let the cards fall as they may.

Philadelphia, being the only stumbling block keeping Dallas out of the playoffs, is faced with three winnable games as well. They match-up at Minnesota this week, at home against Chicago and then of course at Dallas. They are playing much better than they were when Dallas held them down in Week 7. They are still vulnerable, surrendering 285 yards a game.

It all boils down to the fact that the NFC East is extremely unpredictable, and Dallas is far from out of it. Hold on to your seats folk because this one is going right down to the wire.

The first step for Dallas is this weekend’s home game against the Packers. It’s still unknown if Aaron Rodgers will play for Green Bay, but the Cowboys need a win either way. Cowboys tickets are still available so make sure to grab some now.  The average ticket price is currently $345, but you’ll find tickets for below $100 if you’re looking to save.
