Week 9 NFL Power Rankings: Dallas Cowboys Tumble After Embarrassing Loss

A divisional beat down has put the Cowboys right back into crisis mode.

The latest NFL Power Rankings from SBNation are out, and unsurprisingly, the Dallas Cowboys are the biggest loser, dropping five spots to No. 21 after their Sunday night debacle in Philadelphia:

21. Dallas Cowboys (3-4, LW: 16): Yikes...that was a beat down at the hands of Philly. 

Dallas was never in the game against a motivated Eagles team coming off a bye week. Philadelphia has never lost their post-bye week game in 12 years under Andy Reid. 

The loss was so bad the Cowboys only consolation is that it only cost them one game in the standings. Earlier in the season, the Pittsburgh Steelers lost 35-7 to the Baltimore and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost 48-3 to San Francisco, and both teams are now in the thick of the playoff race.

Dallas has a home game against a battered Seattle Seahawks team this week. A win puts them back at 4-4, but a loss would put the entire season in jeopardy.
