In the latest NFL Power Rankings from SBNation, the Dallas Cowboys made up the ground they lost after the Philadelphia debacle two weeks ago, moving up five slots to No. 16:
16. Dallas Cowboys (4-4, LW: 21): The Cowboys say this is the time to start separating from the pack. Games against the Bills, Redskins, Dolphins and Cardinals will help.
A solid if not spectacular 23-13 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday has Dallas back at .500, two games behind the New York Giants in the NFC East.
Now, after one of the most event-filled 4-4 starts in NFL history, the Cowboys schedule is set up for them to get back into the NFC playoff picture.
Only one of their next four opponents -- the Buffalo Bills -- are ranked above them in the Power Rankings. Two -- the Arizona Cardinals and Miami Dolphins -- are ranked among the league's bottom five.
But while Dallas has the talent to go on a winning streak, their ability to stay consistent and avoid making silly mistakes and turnovers is still very much in question.
