Eagles vs. Cowboys, Week 13: Dallas unimpressive in Week 13 win

US PRESSWIRE

Despite coming away with a win in Week 13, the Dallas Cowboys were unimpressive, and will need to play much better if they're going to make a legitimate playoff push.

The Dallas Cowboys came away with a win in Week 13, defeating the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football, 38-33. Though a win is a win, the Cowboys certainly didn't play a complete game on Sunday, and could easily have lost to the Eagles -- a loss that would have destroyed Dallas' playoff hopes.

Still, the Cowboys survived Week 13, improved to 6-6 and kept themselves in the playoff picture.

K.D. Drummond over at Blogging the Boys, SB Nation's Cowboys blog, is grateful for the win -- but believes that the Cowboys are still in trouble.

All in all, the Cowboys did enough to escape with a home victory; complete with moments where you could actually hear the Cowboys Stadium crowd. They even caused a Eagles timeout in a crucial third down situation, imagine that. The Cowboys have pulled themselves up .500 yet again and now face a crucial stretch with the playoffs still unlikely due to the way they play, but at least still possible.

Dallas' remaining schedule is quite difficult, as the Cowboys take on the Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints and Washington Redskins to end the season. Each of Dallas' last four opponents has playoff aspirations, and the Cowboys, as Drummond points out, will need to play much better if they're going to make a legitimate run at the playoffs.
