The Dallas Cowboys are hitting their stride at the right time. The Boys have won three straight games and five of the last six overall.
On offense, a healthy DeMarco Murray is a difference-maker.
Murray allows the Cowboys to establish the run and set up the big play with the passing attack. The Cowboys control their own destiny, and if they win both of their remaining games, they will claim the title.
The Cowboys are two-point favorites at home this week against the New Orleans Saints. Although the Saints have a potent offense, led by quarterback Drew Brees, they have a porous defense and no motivation for this matchup. A victory set the Cowboys up for a revenge game against Washington to possibly decide the division.
If it comes down to one game, the Cowboys will be ready to go and will defeat the Redskins to become the NFC East Champions.
