They say “an ugly win, is still a win”, while this may hold true, Cowboys fans have become accustomed to the “ugly win”. While it seems to be more common to see the Cowboys win a game they are supposed to in ugly fashion, a win is still a win. And take into account the Cowboys have won back-to-back games for the second time this season. The last time this happened was back in October with wins over Philadelphia and Washington.
With four games to go and sole possession of first place in the division, The Cowboys control their own destiny heading into the home stretch of the season. Each of the last four games look winnable, but most fans will have some reservations about being excited for the final games. Because whenever the cowboys look like they should win a game, they find a way to lose.
Winning at least two of the last four should be enough to get them into the playoffs, but with Chicago, Green Bay, Philadelphia and Washington looming in the next four weeks, there is not room for much error. If the Cowboys can win three of these games, they should go in as division champs and finally break the streak of just staying mediocre. But as most fans know, any game against Philly and Washington is far from a sure thing. Those two teams even in their worst years find a way to beat the Cowboys.
So, Have the Cowboys truly turned a corner? We won’t know the real answer until the end of the season, but winning two or three of the next four games will go a long way to answering that question. At this point, anything positive for this team is a step in the right direction.
