Cowboys Look To Win Three In A Row For The First Time Since 2009

In the last two games, the Dallas Cowboys have started to establish themselves in the way that quality teams should. They've dominated inferior opponents, beating the Seattle Seahawks by 10 points, and the Buffalo Bills by 37. Championship caliber teams blow out inferior opponents. If the Cowboys want to be considered amongst the best teams in the league, they need to continue their recent trend by establishing a real winning streak; something they haven't done since the end of the 2009 season.

Every one still remembers the atrocity that was 2010, no need to rehash that misery. Dallas won two games in a row last year just once, the first two games of the Jason Garrett era. In 2009, Dallas won four games in a row on two occasions. In the middle of that season, they reeled off wins over Kansas City, Atlanta, Seattle and Philadelphia. They followed that with a late season run that featured victories over the Saints, Redskins and back-to-back victories over the Eagles.

Notice that three game sweep of Philly? Oh, the good-ol' days.

The Washington Redskins are a downtrodden franchise. The early season bravado they displayed has left, replaced by a disappointing defeatist attitude that has them paying more attention to the collegiate game and draft prospects than looking to win another game this season. If Dallas wants to be considered a top tier team, they must continue their upswing and lay a classic beat down to today's opponent.
