The Dallas Cowboys are in an all-too-familiar situation. Entering Week 17, the Cowboys play another do-or-die finale to determine if they make the playoffs, or go home.
This is the third straight season Dallas is in this scenario, and it’s well documented that the last two opportunities didn’t turn out so well.
In 2011, the Giants trounced the Cowboys in New Jersey. Eli Manning and company dominated the entire game and won 31-14.
Last year, Dallas lost a heartbreaker at the hands of rookie Robert Griffin III in the nation’s capital. Tony Romo’s late-game interception sealed the 28-18 defeat for the Cowboys.
This week, Dallas gets the other divisional opponent in the Philadelphia Eagles. Perhaps the home-field advantage and the experience of the last two seasons will change the team’s fortunes this time around.
Let’s take a look at some bold predictions for the Cowboys’ extremely important matchup.
