Dak Prescott says Cowboys "have to win" vs. Eagles

Overreaction Cowboys can't make playoffs without Zeke

Everyone did. What Sunday's loss in Atlanta means for this week at AT&T Stadium isn't exactly apples to apples, Schwartz says.

The game started out on a positive note for America's Team. Many fans wanted him on the bench for Jaylon Smith back in the spring but Hitchens had the best training camp of arguably any Cowboy and they dodged a major bullet with his preseason knee injury against the Raiders.

Without these players on the field, the team struggled and struggled mightily.

It's a new day for the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans as they and their quarterback have turned into one of the most popular shows in the NFL.

Early on, you could see him flourishing at his middle linebacker position. Philadelphia has won seven straight games, and use a healthy combination of offense and defense. After Lee's injury he had to move to weakside linebacker to fill the void, and still managed to make an impact. "And to be the best, you've gotta beat the best". Jones ranks second in the league in fewest punt yards allowed and has been nearly automatic at pinning teams inside the 10-yards line.

And here is the kicker - it won't just be Philadelphia and Eagles fans that will be howling with delight. Only 46 quarterbacks in National Football League history (and only five this century) have finished a season with a better percentage than that. He expects the Cowboys to make adjustments in this NFC East battle. But all that is moot now. The Eagles have a great opportunity to all but wrap up the division title, which is already a near certainty. Yes, they'll need some help, but they have two chances to gain ground head-to-head.

If they lose, though, that's nearly certain that the division title will be out of reach.

Emir: Qatar to hold Shura Council election 'soon'
The blockading countries severed ties with Qatar on June 5, accusing it of supporting "terrorism" and seeking close ties with Iran.

For now, the Cowboys must set their sights on a Wild Card spot.

Three years ago, Sports Illustrated boldly predicted on the cover of their legendary magazine that the then 70-92 Houston Astros would become the World Series champions in 2017.

After his Chiefs were crushed by Dallas, 51-23, on November 5, Pro Bowl linebacker Tamba Hali told the Dallas Morning News that the Cowboys, and not the Eagles, are "the best team in the league". The answer is obvious; they each have some of the best quarterbacks in the game to rely on. Bell replaced Green and wasn't really a factor in slowing Clayborn, who had his way the entire game in a Falcons victory. The Falcons sacked Dak Prescott a total of eight times in Week 10. Chaz offered very little technique as his hand placement was poor and would frequently get pushed away which left him slow and helpless. "The guy [s] gave up six sacks".

The Cowboys had no answer for Clayborn and never has a pass rusher had such a dominating performance against the Cowboys. So, it is a big game. We know what's there. The running game will improve. Most of that came from Alfred Morris. It won't just be the end of the losing game for the Cowboys - it will be the unofficial end of their season. To have even that slim hope, they must win on Sunday. Struggles in pass protection required the coaching staff to get creative with the play calling. "He doesn't have to reset to throw and he's accurate on the run".

But this season hasn't been so kind to Lee.

Smith missed the Cowboys game on Sunday with a groin injury and his absence was felt. And as soon as he left the game against the Falcons, the defense would struggle and the team would be outscored 27-0. Which means that for this game, he will be out as well so the Cowboys will be finding it hard to score.
