Dallas Cowboys: Players Who Will Play Crucial Roles Down the Home Stretch

Thursday's Thanksgiving Day game was initially a disaster. And that might be an understatement. The Redskins, led by the stellar play of quarterback Robert Griffin III, went up 28-3 after the first half. Somehow, miraculously, the Cowboys actually got within a touchdown.

But in typical Dallas fashion, the comeback was futile and too late. With the Giants looking stagnant at the top of the NFC East (and they have a huge game against the Green Bay Packers Sunday), the Redskins and Cowboys are tied at 5-6.

The Cowboys are technically alive in the NFC East, but they are on life support. And if they have any hope of achieving a playoff spot, they have little room for error. Listless first halves like they’ve shown the last two games are unacceptable. So are the penalties.

Can they do it? If they do have any shot of making an impact in the NFC East, it’ll be because of these players.
