The Cowboys came into Charlotte needing a victory. They dominated the Ravens last week in Baltimore but still lost the game. Two weeks before that, Dallas took a tough loss against the Bears on Monday night and the week before that "L," the Cowboys beat the Bucs by six.
In essence, it's been a very up-and-down season for the Cowboys. With their win against the Panthers today, they may have added some consistency to their season.
The Cowboys beat Carolina 19-14 in a game that featured just six Cowboys penalties and only 85 rushing yards. Oh, and Dallas only turned the ball over one time.
When the mental errors are low and Dallas keeps its turnover count minimal, that is usually a recipe for success.
Here are the biggest winners and losers from Sunday's victory in Charlotte.
