The Dallas Cowboys will play their second game on the East Coast in as many weeks when they face the Carolina Panthers in Week 7. Both teams were expected to compete in their respective divisions, but while America's (Most Vilified) Team struggles to get out of their own way, the upstart Panthers seem to be finding theirs.
Dallas (2-3) had several opportunities to knock off the Ravens in Week 6, but with a dropped TD here, a dropped two-point conversion there and a wide-left field goal to end the game, the Cowboys officially let their third win of the season slip through their fingers.
They'll try again at win No. 3 in Charlotte with a talented offense that seems to take turns choking away games. While quarterback Tony Romo gets the lion's share of the blame for poor play, he's getting plenty of "help."
Carolina (1-4) is coming off their Week 6 bye. They're currently burdened with a three-game losing streak. Those losses came at the hands of teams that could all conceivably make the playoffs (New York Giants, Atlanta and the 3-3 Seattle Seahawks), but expectations for quarterback Cam Newton and his team were much higher at the start of the season.
A curious offense and overly conservative play-calling have overshadowed a team with enough talent to be competitive in the NFC South.
