Two weeks ago, the Dallas Cowboys had an impressive 27-20 win over their division rival, the Washington Football Team. In this game, the Cowboys played an exceptional first half, especially in the first quarter. They started out with 18 first-quarter points. The offense was surprisedly clicking and the defense was playing fantastic.

This defense would continue its stellar throughout the game only allowing two touchdowns (14 points). However, that can’t be said about the offense. After the first quarter, the Cowboys managed to go the rest of the way with zero touchdowns and three field goals.

This, unfortunately, won’t be a winning formula for Dallas in the playoffs. Converting these field goals into touchdowns is what can put this team on top in any game, playoffs or not.

In Week 15, the story was very similar against the New York Giants. The defense allowed just six points and had four takeaways. This marked their third straight game of 4+ takeaways. With the defense finally getting healthy, they are looking unstoppable on this end.

And, the offense was still having its struggles. This was another mediocre performance against a Giants’ defense who previously gave up 37 points to the Los Angeles Chargers. Quarterback Dak Prescott threw for 217 yards and one touchdown, marking his third straight of throwing for less than 250 yards and only one touchdown.

Three things the Cowboys will be wishing for this Christmas

Right now, the offense is on the naughty list and the defense is on the nice list.

However, evenyou ahve with the woes on the offense in recent weeks, America’s Team is still in good shape. They are currently only one game out of first place and have a big lead in the NFC East. Essentially, the Cowboys will likely be back to the postseason for the first time since 2018. That has Cowboys fans feeling very holly and jolly this time of year.

With today being Christmas Eve and tomorrow being Christmas Day, we are all getting in the holiday spirit. Here are three things that the Cowboys will be asking Santa for this Christmas season.
