Entering week 9, the Dallas Cowboys desperately needed a win to keep their season alive. With a 3-5 record and back to back losses, the Cowboys would have to come up big in a game against the defending Super Bowl champions; the Philadelphia Eagles. They won on the road 27-20. After a big win to spark some confidence in the locker room and their new wide receiver Amari Cooper, (2 time pro bowl select in 4 years) the Cowboys would win the next 2 games and take first place in the NFC East.

The Cowboys beat the Eagles, the Atlanta Falcons, the Washington Redskins and the New Orleans Saints. One of the biggest game of the 4 game win streak took place on Thanksgiving. Dallas hosted the Redskins, a divisional game for the first spot in the East. They dominated the second half of the game, including 2 plays that added 140 passing yards to their statistics.

The most recent victory from Dallas took place on a Thursday night game in Dallas, on November 29. The Cowboys snapped the Saints 10 game win streak, and moved on to a 7-5 record. Dallas made history, being the only team to hold Drew Brees and the Saints to just 4 yards in the first quarter. They also were the first team in 72 games to shutout the Saints in 72 games. The game was secured when Brees threw an interception to Jourdan Lewis to put the win in the books.

Dallas will host the Philadelphia Eagles on December 9, and will look to improve their 4 game win streak to 5, as America’s team is back on top in the NFC East.
