The once high-flying Dallas Cowboys are flying no more.
In fact, theY crashed and burned last night at home.
Call them the Turkey Cowboys!
And they are coming back to the Eagles and the pack in the NFC East.
The Eagles are 5-6 and Dallas is 7-4 in the division race.
Even when Dak Prescott did a great job to get Dallas to overtime against the Las Vegas Raiders in a Thanksgiving thriller, the defense couldn’t do enough to win. A huge pass interference call on Dallas was all the Raiders needed in overtime.
After a great 6-1 start, Dallas has fallen pretty hard over the past four weeks. Dallas lost its third game in four weeks, and each loss has been disappointing in its own way. The Raiders beat Dallas 36-33 in overtime after the Cowboys’ offense went three-and-out to start overtime and the defense couldn’t get a stop. The key play in overtime came when Anthony Brown took a pass interference penalty on third-and-18, setting up a field goal. It was Brown’s fourth penalty of the game.
It was a huge win for the Raiders, who improved to 6-5 and snapped a three-game losing streak. The Cowboys’ once-promising season isn’t looking so great anymore.The Cowboys offense got hot in the fourth quarter, but for much of the game it wasn’t as explosive as usual. Some of it is due to missing Cooper and Lamb. They’re two of the top 25 or so receivers in the game. You can’t just replace them.
