The Dallas Cowboys kept their playoff hopes alive with a come from behind 38-33 victory in Arlington last night over the Philadelphia Eagles.The Cowboys evened their record at 6-6 while handing the Eagles their 8th straight defeat. Tony Romo came out of a slow start and threw three touchdown passes for the Cowboys who scored 28 second half points to erase a 17-10 deficit to win the game.

However, the Cowboys road to the post season is narrowly thin thanks to the egg they laid on Thanksgiving Day against the Redskins. The boys need to win probably at least three out of the last four if not all four to make the playoffs. It's not likely that 8-8, which would be a split of the last four will be good enough this year to make it to the post season.

The next four games are tough:

at Cincinnati

vs. Pittsburgh

vs. New Orleans

at Washington.

My opinion is, if the Cowboys fail to make the playoffs, then  Head Coach Jason Garrett will be out of a job. Only time and Jerry Jones will tell. As for Eagles Coach Andy Reid, he is probably gone after the season ends.
