The Dallas Cowboys certainly felt better after a weekend off.
Receiver Roy Williams, running back Felix Jones and safety Gerald Sensabaugh are among the injured players given some extra recovery time after already missing games and should be back Sunday against Atlanta.
The 3-2 Cowboys also moved into a second-place tie with Philadelphia and gained a half-game on the NFC East-leading New York Giants without even playing. That's after all the other division teams lost last weekend while Dallas had its bye.
Now Dallas needs something a little more credible: a win on the field against a good team like, say, the 4-1 Falcons.
While the Cowboys have managed a winning record, their victories are against a trio of teams with a combined 3-11 record.
Lose Sunday to another winning team, like they did against division leaders New York and Denver, and the Cowboys are a pedestrian .500 team capable of going either way after that.
