Week 10 NFL Power Rankings: Dallas Cowboys Poised To Make A Push

It's now or never for the inconsistent Cowboys, who start a string of four winnable games in November.

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.
