A devastating home loss to the New York Giants has the Cowboys on the outside of the playoff picture with only three weeks to go.
After their second straight last-second loss, the Dallas Cowboys have turned what could have been an overwhelming two-game lead in the NFC East into a dog-fight that will probably go down to the last week of the season.
As a result, the Cowboys have slipped from No. 10 to No. 14 in SBNation's latest NFL Power Rankings:
Murray's emergence halfway through the season had changed the complexion of the team, as he set a Dallas rookie rushing record with 164 carriers for 897 yards in 7 games.
Now, the Cowboys are down to only one healthy running back, the perennially injured Felix Jones, a huge problem for a team that's already struggled to hold fourth-quarter leads this season.
