Follow along with me.

Dallas is 9-4 and as we have talked of before, loses in nearly all tie breakers.

The Eagles are also 9-4 and if they beat the Cowboys Sunday night they will all but wrap up the division. Their last two games are against the Skins and Giants. Don't see a loss there, let alone two.

We are currently tied with Detroit and Seattle. Lurking behind is Arizona.

Detroit plays:

Vikings
@ Bears
@ GB

Even is they lose to GB, that would put them with 5 loses, same as Dallas if they lose to the Egales. We lose tie breaker to them.

Seattle plays:

Niners
@ Cardinals
Rams

I don't see them losing another game but even if they do, they are probable tied with the Lions or win their division.

Arizona plays:

@ Rams
Seattle
@ Niners

With three losses Arizona would need to lose out. It's not out of the question but they only need on win.

To assure themselves of getting in, Dallas needs to run the table. Lose one game of the final three and it becomes problematic.

If we lose one game and at this point it doesn't matter to who, we have to hope the Cardinals lose all three. I don't see any other scenario for the Cowboys to get in?

If we lose two games and go 10-6 we are done. The worst that Arizona can be is 10-6 and they along with Detroit hold tiebreakers against us.

It doesn't look good, but in a way a bunch of other teams are in the same fix.  Too many good teams and not enough spots.

All those 8-8 seasons where we were in a must win situation. Crazy, here we are once again win or go home.

But I really would not want to be facing this young team who doesn't quit. I know we have some guys who really want to get even. Cowboys will not embarrass themselves this time.

Considering 90% of Cowboy nation had us finishing worse than 8-8 this year.  

Well I'll still be glad we had a good season win or lose. Not going to get emotional about things til its over.

To early for game day post, but Bevo could edit it and add some magic touches, and I'll sticky it to Game Day.

Anybody who wants to do a Game Day post just let me know in a PM. I'm sure others would do a good job.

Not a game day. Just an opinion piece.

OK.....

I am usually pessimistic, but I really think Dallas has a chance to make this not only a game but give themselves a chance to win. I really do.

Not going to make a prediction yet. The Eagles looked horrible yesterday.

I'll point out one more time, we can lose this game and still have a chance for the playoffs.

Win or lose, those who predicted 3-4-5 wins this season should have no complaints.
