It’s been 15 years since the Cowboys have made the playoffs in consecutive years which in 2006 and 2007 is only time in 21st Century. And a franchise that hasn’t reached the NFC Championship since 1995 in their last of 5 Super Bowl Championships.
Dallas is currently 6-2 which is same place we were last year. Only one time in Cowboys history did they fail to make the playoffs after starting 6-2. In 1986 after Danny White went down for the season the Cowboys lost 7 of their last 8 finishing 7-9.
Runaway division leaders a year ago the Cowboys find themselves trailing the undefeated Egirls by 2 games. So , even if the Cowboys finish strong and split with them they’ll need some help. Bottomline is the division isn't in our control at this time.
But with the NFC down this year we lead other Wild Card competitors for one of the 3 slots by at least 3 games at this time . So it would take a major collapse by the Cowboys not to make the playoffs. Or possibly one of the 4-5 type teams to win out. I’d say making the playoffs appears fairly certain for the Cowboys while their could be some bumps in the road .
