Dallas will travel to D.C. to battle the Redskins for the last game of the year

 

The Dallas Cowboys will find themselves back on primetime in a game that means everything to them and the Redskins. The two teams will meet at FedEx Field in D.C. to fight for the division title and a spot in the playoffs. The Cowboys come into the game with an 8-7 record while the Redskins are 9-6 to date. The Cowboys have been one of the hottest teams as of late while the Redskins have been one of the hottest teams this season. The game will certainly have a playoff atmosphere as it will be featured late and have so much on the line. All eyes will be watching as well, and this game could figure to see some record numbers in ratings.

The battle of America’s team and an old foe in Washington, with a new leader, will certainly bring many to their televisions. Redskin’s quarterback RGIII has shown he is a fan favorite, as he leads the league in jersey sales. The quarterback has shown he is a triple threat who can run, throw, and do anything it takes to get the win. He is still battling a knee injury but showed last week that he can do enough with his arm to win any game.

Dallas will look to exploit his knee injury and keep him on his toes. They have an offense that can keep up with many and a defense that has showed they can plug in anyone and do well. Defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has lost many starters, but has been able to still scheme up wins. This will be the story on Sunday, and the ending will be one you will not want to miss.

Cowboys continue to make a run for playoffs

 

The Dallas Cowboys will try to continue a run at the playoffs this week on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Cowboys will need to basically win out the rest of the season if they hope to squeak in. Currently they are 6-6, but face a must win this week at Paul Brown Stadium. The win would be a big one though against a team that is fighting for a playoff spot of their own. The Bengals are 7-5 and will have the home field advantage for the game, which should really make things hard for the Cowboys.

Last week the Cowboys were able to rise up and get a 38-33 win against the Eagles last week in Dallas. The team finally looked to have it working offensively, but gave up way too much on the defensive side of the ball. This was disappointing to them as their defense has been what has been getting them by most of the time. This Sunday they will have to have all the pieces working together if they plan on escaping Cincinnati with a victory.

The Bengals currently sit in good shape to get a wildcard spot. Currently they are in a three team race for the wildcard. They too will need to nearly win out if they really hope to get into the post-season. This game is a game many would say they should win, and it could be a good step for them going into the home stretch of the 2012 NFL season.

Which terrible team will be victorious.. Eagles or Cowboys?

 

The NFC East will see a battle of their basement teams this week in Dallas. Two teams that started the season with much promise now find themselves rethinking their entire organizations. Andy Reid, the coach of the Eagles, and Dallas’ coach have both been involved in the rumor mill to be possibly on the move. This game may just be the one that breaks one of these coaches who may be playing for their jobs at this point. The game will be showcased on primetime Sunday night at 8:20 PM ET

Dallas comes into the game with a 5-6 record. Last week they had hoped to stay in playoff conversations as they hosted the Washington Redskins at home. They ended up losing 38-31, however, which helped the Redskins get to 5-6. The team has been awful at home despite having the biggest stadium to fill with loyal fans of America’s team. It has yet to be a place that people fear to come play in and a Eagles win is certainly not out of the question.

The Eagles have failed to play up to potential this year as well, and are just 3-8 this season. Philadelphia lost 30-22 last Monday night against the Panthers. Unfortunately, the NFL thought the Eagles would be good and gave them primetime games. Now America must watch poor teams play under the lights, which is something no one wants to do week in and week out. Unfortunately, that will be the case this week though.

Cowboys take another loss on Thanksgiving

 

The Dallas Cowboys lost another game in Texas this turkey day. The game began as an absolute embarrassment at Cowboys Stadium when the Cowboys began the game scoring just 3 in the first half. They took an early 3-0 lead after the first, but then gave up 28 points in the second quarter. Dallas began a huge comeback in the second half, however, but in the end it was too little too late. In the end, they lost 38-31. Dallas is now just 5-6 on the year. The loss may have officially ended any hope of playoff aspirations the team had.

Dallas will have to look more towards the future and find out what they must do to be more competitive. It looks like all the teams of the NFC East are becoming more and more even with one another. The Cowboys have been very inconsistent in terms of their entire team from special teams to offense and defense. Rumors have circled about Coach Jason Garret whose seat can only get hotter and hotter with each home loss. What has got to be most frustrating to the team must be their poor performances at home. The stadium seats 100,000 plus fans, but wins have been anything but easy to come by.

The Redskins are certainly up and coming in the division and league. They finally have a good coach with a great running game and big-play quarterback. The defense could certainly use some improvement as can the receiving corps, but the pieces are certainly falling into place. The team is now tied with Dallas at 5-6, but has been in many more games then Dallas and will probably end the year with a better record then them.

 

Dallas will look for another win in Cleveland on Sunday

 

The Dallas Cowboys will play the Cleveland Browns this Sunday at 1 PM ET at Cowboys Stadium. Dallas enters the game with a 4-5 record while the Browns come to town with just a 2-7 mark. The Cowboys are in desperate need of a win and are playing a team they should beat. A loss could all but end their season as they try to stay afloat in the NFC East and are in the hunt for a playoff spot. They still have plenty of work to do if they plan on making that happen, but a win Sunday could help propel them further.

Dallas will have to defeat a Browns team that, although has lost most of their games, stays in contest and has proved to be a play away from several victories. Cleveland is also coming of their Bye week and should be healthy and refreshed after a much needed break. Rookie running back sensation Trent Richardson could prove to be a big factor in the game as his ribs should be near 100 percent healthy. Cleveland will have to contend with an old friend Sunday, however, in the form of Dallas defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. Ryan had previously coached the Browns defense before leaving for Dallas two seasons ago.

Dallas comes into the game after a 38-23 win against the Eagles in Philadelphia last week. The Cowboys are still underperforming due to everyone’s always inflated expectations for the team. They may have done just enough so far to give themselves a chance down the stretch however.

Cowboys travel to Philly to try to win rivalry game

 

Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia will host a very interesting rivalry game this week at 4:25 PM ET. There, the Eagles will play host to the Dallas Cowboys. These two NFC East rivals have met several times in some very good matchups. This game should be a good one, but not because both teams have been having stellar years. It will honestly be more interesting as both teams have coaches that are a bit on the hot seat. Both teams have identical 3-5 records and are performing under their expectations. It will truly be anyone’s game.

The Cowboys come into the game after a hard-fought 19-13 loss to the Falcons last Sunday night. The team showed some poise and has really been a tough match all year. In the end they have just made a mistake here or there, which has cost them many games. Their defense has been one of the better ones in the league, but the offense has been anything but consistent. They do have the edge on both sides of the ball as they are ranked better in most statistical categories other than rush yards per game.

The Eagles come into the game after a terrible offensive day in New Orleans against the Saints. They lost the game 28-13 on Monday night and looked awful in the process. There have been rumors that the team may go another route instead of continuing with Andy Reid. Losing this divisional game would certainly not help his cause especially at home. Dallas will plan to play spoiler and try to stay afloat for possible wild card aspirations.

Dallas on prime time again

 

The Dallas Cowboys will travel to the Georgia Dome in Atlanta to take on the Falcons this Sunday Night. The game will be televised on NBC’s Sunday Night Football at 8:20 PM ET. The Cowboys come into the game in a must win situation as they are just 3-4 so far to this point. The home team Falcons, however, remain to be the only team left in the NFL that has yet to lose this season. They are 7-0 to this point and could really all but seal up a playoff spot with a win.

Dallas has continued to be up and down this year, but is coming off a hard-fought loss to the Giants last week. That game was another classic Dallas implode though, as the team had a solid lead most of the game. They found a way to lose however and are now set for a matchup that will be just as demanding of them. The final of their game versus New York was 29-24.

The Falcons have handled every opponent of theirs pretty well thus far, but have struggled little to this point of the year. Last week they made quick work of the Eagles 30-17 in Philadelphia. They have, however, been in a lot of close battles against teams that are not considered good by many however. This includes very tight games against the Raiders and Panthers. This Sunday’s matchup against the Cowboys may actually be one of their biggest test of the year given their simple schedule.

Cowboys fight to get ahead in the NFC East

 

The Dallas Cowboys were able to move to 3-3 on the year last Sunday in Carolina against the Panthers. The Cowboys did not do it with ease, but can hopefully build of the win to try d get back into fighting distance in the NFC East. The team overall struggled offensively despite having a favorable matchup in the Panthers defense. They did bring plenty f defense of their own though which was pivotal in the win. The loss brings the Panthers to just 1-5 on the season and had Panther QB Cam Newton visibly sickened by the time his press conference came around.

Dallas was able to get most their success in the kicking game and had just one touchdown in the game. That came in the 3rd quarter when Tony Romo connected with Miles Austin. Romo looked like he was simply trying to mainly control the game and avoid mistakes, which he did well. He ended with 227 yards and the score and had no interceptions. The team’s main issue in this game, and throughout the year, has been rushing the football. This is something they must improve to get more wins and be more dominating. They ended Sunday’s game with just 85 yards between three different rushers.

Carolina has been self-imploding all year on both sides of the ball. In this game, Cam Newton had to try and do everything as he could get no help from his rushing game. He ended up leading the team rushing with 64 yards on 6 carries. The next closest guy had just 35 yards on 10 touches. Despite being close in the game, the team simply does not rush enough. Cam saw this and addressed it rather angrily in his post game press conference. Hopefully his coaches got the point, but meanwhile it helped bring Dallas a W.

Cowboys and Giants meet again

 

The Dallas Cowboys will meet the New York Giants on Sunday for their second and final meeting of the year (barring a playoff meeting). The Giants were defeated by the Cowboys week one of the season, but have only lost once since. Meanwhile the Cowboys have only won 2 other times since that meeting. The Giants come into the game at 5-2 while the Cowboys are 3-3. The game will be played at Cowboys Stadium and is set to kickoff at 4:25 PM ET.

Last week the Cowboys were able to win a close game 19-14 against the Carolina Panthers in Carolina. The team was dominate defensively and continues to make positive strides on that side of the ball. Offensively, however, they have been up and down all season and you never know what Cowboys offense will show up. They seem to still be trying to find an identity, which is something that is taking too much time and will cost them if not fixed quickly. This week’s game would give them an awesome opportunity to get back into the division. A loss, on the other hand, could all but cripple any hope they have.

The defending Super Bowl champions sure will not make it easy for them and are sure to be angry after they lost opening day to the Cowboys. Since that time, they have gone 5-1 and are beating teams on both sides of the ball. They have pulled out tough games and have everything a team needs to repeat. Sunday’s divisional game will give everyone a good idea of where they are as a team in terms of having a real chance to repeat.

Dallas travels to Carolina to take on the Panthers

 

The Dallas Cowboys will travel to Carolina this Sunday to take on the Panthers at Bank of America Stadium. The Cowboys enter the game with a 2-3 record in the NFC East and can kiss their playoff hopes, all but gone, if they lose Sunday. A 2-4 start will certainly devastate them and I do not feel they could overcome it. Carolina has not been able to defeat many and have just one win this season. Cam Newton is in a serious sophomore slump and opposing NFL defenses seemed to have caught up to his play from last season. Carolina’s defense has also provided no help and is one of the league’s worst. 

Dallas has been all over the map this year and need to get some sort of consistency. You really never know what Dallas team will show up, but you can bet that one piece may be missing. If the offense shows up the defense does not, or if the defense shows up the team can not move the ball on offense. Romo has looked great at times like in week one against the Giants in a tough road victory. Last week, he nearly beat a very tough Baltimore team, but ended up getting the L in the end. Romo could sure use a solid run game if he hopes to have success and must get more help on the defensive side of the ball as well.

Carolina can not seem to buy a win. Their defense has played horribly and gives up nearly 400 yards a game. They give up nearly 250 of those through the air and 127 on the ground. The team also gives up 25 points a game to boot. They have been a disappointment to many this year who hoped they could improve the defense to match the offense and make some news in the league. They still have a chance Sunday as the Cowboys seem to be one of those Jekyll and Hyde teams of the NFL.
