Here are the non-Cowboys things we are rooting for this week.
We have reached the week of Thanksgiving and the Dallas Cowboys, despite last week’s results, look like they are going to finish the regular season as NFC East winners and participants in the playoffs.
As far as things outside of the team’s control, the Cowboys did pick up a little bit of help in Week 11 as the Minnesota Vikings took down the Green Bay Packers. What’s more is that for the second week in a row, the Indianapolis Colts and Miami Dolphins both won which worsened the draft stock of the Philadelphia Eagles for 2022 (the Eagles themselves also won so all of their picks worsened this past week).
Unfortunately the Arizona Cardinals got back to their winning ways even though they were without quarterback Kyler Murray, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers snapped their two-game losing streak and passed the Cowboys in the NFC Playoff Picture in the process, knocking Dallas down to the fourth seed entering Week 12.
