Like it or not, the Cowboys are now in a position where they’re going to need some help.
It feels like we say this every year, but this season is wild in the NFL.
Don’t believe me? The Rams are one of the greatest offenses there is and the Saints are winning with defense. How’s that?
This of course makes for quite the spicy playoff picture. As Cowboys fans we’re living in an upside down from 2016 where the Philadelphia Eagles run the NFC East, and we’re looking for scraps at the Wildcard table.
The four division leaders in the NFC at the moment are the Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, and Los Angeles Rams. The Carolina Panthers, Seattle Seahawks, Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions, Dallas Cowboys, and Green Bay Packers all want one of the aforementioned Wildcard slots.
How do the Cowboys get there then? They’ve already squandered opportunities against Los Angeles, Green Bay, and Atlanta. They’re on the outside looking in and, unfortunately, in a position where they need some help.
