    On Deck will be here all season to provide you with everything you need to know (and a few things you don't) about every Cowboys game during the 2015 season.

    The Opponent: The Bills, like the Cowboys, are eliminated from the postseason and now have the longest active playoffs-missed streak in the NFL. On top of that, there are rumbles that first-year head coach Rex Ryan has already lost his team. That's never a good thing.

    Past Meetings: The Cowboys are 8-3 all-time against the Bills, including, of course, two straight Super Bowls in 1993 and 1994 that the Cowboys won. In fact, Dallas has beaten the Bills their last three meetings and the last time the Bills beat them was back in 1996, a 10-7 Bills win.

    Who's Hot: Darren McFadden has two straight games now of over 100 yards and is just a few yards shy of a 1,000-yard season. Dez Bryant seemed energized after Kellen Moore came in at quarterback, and while he wasn't great on Saturday night, he did rack up 50 receiving yards and a touchdown. DeMarcus Lawrence has been fantastic lately and had another sack on Saturday.

    Recently red-hot receiver Sammy Watkins had 111 yards and two touchdowns, and the Bills rushed for 240 yards despite losing leading rusher LeSean McCoy to injury. Tyrod Taylor threw for 235 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

    Who's Not: I mean, Kellen Moore was, I guess, better than Matt Cassel. He seemed to have a better control of the offense after he replaced Cassel on Saturday but he did throw three interceptions.

    The Bills didn't have any glaring dogs on Sunday but they did allow 308 passing yards.
