Following a demoralizing loss at the hands of the Bears in Chicago on Monday night, the Dallas Cowboys are convinced they need to run the table in the final three weeks of the season if they’re going to end their playoff drought, which goes back to 2009--the Wade Phillips era.
"We've got to win out," Tony Romo told ESPN Dallas. "That's our approach. We need to do that. I think we have that mindset. I think we've had that. Really, a couple of weeks ago, we felt like we needed to win. We did that, so it's going right back into it."
This will be tough, of course. The Philadelphia Eagles, the team Dallas trails in the NFC East, are riding a five-game winning streak. Dallas will meet a Green Bay Packers team that very well could have Aaron Rodgers back at the helm next Sunday before meeting the Redskins in Week 16.
Then, it’s on to Philadelphia to play those Eagles for the season finale.
"We've got to win them all at this point," said cornerback Orlando Scandrick. "We can't sit around and wait for Philadelphia to lose."
