I don't understand the Cowboys. There are games where they go out and absolutely destroy their competition. And then they go lay an egg like yesterday. Seems like it's either best case scenario or worst case scenario for them. The lack of discipline might be the theme that sinks them in their bad games. I still think they can beat anyone as long as they stay out of their own way.

The Cowboys looked like they're ready for their usual playoff run, they look good/great during the regular season then disappear come playoff time.

How many GOOD teams have they destroyed? They are very good at smashing bad teams.....they beat Philly convincingly (this time) but otherwise?

I don't know as I don't follow them closely. It's just my perception that they either smash a team, or they fall on their face.

The Cowboys got destroyed by the freaking Cardinals early this season. Let that sink in. They’ll be one-and-done in the playoffs and that most recent SB trophy will get a little bit rustier. They have the horses, they need a better HC and staff.

I think you have to look at the quality of wins and losses. The Cowboys tend to beat up on weaker teams. That's a fact. Look at all the teams they've thumped this season. They destroyed an ailing and reeling Eagles team last week. Not sure what they proved with that win. When they face a good football team they rarely rise to the occasion and this is especially true in the Playoffs. Why is that? Because adverse selection largely goes out the window in the postseason. The only teams left are the best of the best and that's a daunting proposition in a league with the greatest parity of any professional sport.

Basically most the league, besides the Superbowl winner each year. Bills/Allen have been hyped for years and can't get over the hump either.

Realistically I agree with Vegas. Cowboys have 5th or 6th best chance to win Superbowl. In other words very unlikely. They would need to go on a hot streak at just the right time.

Similar to the Lions. Both teams can be hot or cold. There is no in between. Lions have some bad losses.

Who is destroying good teams, besides 49ers? Eagles have been squeaking by in most of the W's. Chiefs look meh. Dolphins have put up big numbers, but have no significant wins(losses to Bills/Chiefs/Jags/Eagles).

This year is the most parody I have ever seen in NFL. Any team can win any Sunday.

Their problem is they are built on defense to play with a lead. Dan Quinn has built a defense designed around defending the pass and getting to the QB. Tons of speed, but the LBs and DL are undersized. So if they get down or get in to a grind it out on the ground style game, they are in trouble. Add to it 3 personal fouls on 3rd/4th down that extended drives and ultimately led to 21 points, and it was a disaster from the start.

Similarly on offense, they are built to take advantage of their speed. The run game, and especially Pollard, is not built to to run up the middle and wear down a defense all game. And when they come across a team with similar speed, they arent able to get to the edges and break something free.

Buffalo had a great gameplan to mitigate both things the Cowboys do well. They avoided putting Allen in a position to throw the ball and let the Cowboys Pass Rush tee off on him. And they played zone coverage and avoided letting the Cowboys playmakers getting open space.

Hopefully, the Cowboys do what they did after the 9ers loss and come up with some gameplans to counter this. Because this is what you are going to see in the playoffs on the road in poor weather. I'm not worried about playing the NFC South winner in the WC weekend, if they do end up the #5 seed, but going on the road to Philly in probably a poor weather game, and ultimately having to go on the road in SF, wont go well if they stick to what theyve been doing.

Still a great team, they are now #2 in point differential and you dont get that by accident. Eagles for example have a 146pt lower point differential, but they need to figure out how to fix their weaknesses if they want to make a deep run.

This.

Only the 9ers are rolling good teams and bad teams. The Dolphins, outside of a few games, havent really been blowing anyone out, good or bad teams. The Ravens have a few blowout wins, vs bad teams. The Eagles havent blown anyone out.

Definitely this. The AZ loss was a fluke. The Niners loss was the most alarming. Eagles loss was barely, on the Road and indicative of a Division Rival. When then destroyed them in return. This Bills game was extremely sloppy. The biggest concerns I have going forward:
Run Defense
Sloppy, undisciplined play resulting in penalties.
I still believe Dallas will advance to the NFC Conference Playoffs.
History says they will bounce back against the Fins.

Now for the Hawks to bring down the Eagles...

I forgot to add... Other huge concern that is squarely on Dan Quinn, ZERO adjustments in the second half. We still have a very capable and potent Defense. But, if they are not utilized correctly, it won't matter.

That might have just locked number one seed for 49ers, thanks to Drew Lock. 3 game skid for the Eagles.

The way things are lining up, 3/4 will be against Minnesota so Lions will get thru the wildcard game. That may leave them with the battered/bruised winner of Boys/Eagles, so potential for 2 playoff game wins.

Any given Thursday/Saturday/Sunday/Monday this season, I love it!

What a crazy weekend and Monday of football. Ravens and Dolphins are the kings of the AFC. 49'ers are still the kings of the NFC but they showed again how susceptible even when 1 or 2 key players are out. I'm also pissed at the 49'ers for how they managed their offense in the 4th quarter for fantasy football reasons. I was winning my playoff matchup with McCaffrey having a big game. The 49'ers (mainly Sam Darnold) decided to stop giving the ball to McCaffrey and slinged it around to everyone else. A couple of those receptions late in the game to Aiyuk sunk my week and I lost by a couple points. Fantasy football isn't worth the frustration. Too much of it is just plain luck....

And now my Vikings which are getting worse by the week: Nick Mullens is trying to be Brett Favre with far less talent. There is nearly a minute left in the game and he tried to force the ball to Jefferson in the endzone which resulted in an interception. We had too much time left in the game to be that desperate. Even if that play wins and Jefferson scores a TD we leave the Lions with about 50 seconds left with Detroit only needing a field goal to win. 98% chance they would have marched down the field and won the game anyways. Good lord I miss Kirk Cousins and hope we can sign him to another deal and he stays healthy. I'm afraid that if we don't resign Cousins then Jefferson might want to leave. And I saw that Hockenson tore a couple ligaments. Yikes what a bad season.

JMcLellan I'm worried we aren't getting to .500 or the first wildcard game. But, any given Sunday. . .

I did distribute $990 in pool winnings to family on Monday!!!
