The Dallas Cowboys have had a tough two weeks, as excruciating losses to the Arizona Cardinals and New York Giants have put them in a position no one likes to be in. A position with no control of their destiny.
Two weeks ago, they had a firm grip on their playoff destiny. Now, the Cowboys need folks to lose and they've got to keep winning. Up next is a Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team who has been eliminated from playoff contention but could look to vindicate themselves after getting embarrassed by Jacksonville on Sunday.
