Sometimes being a couch potato can be good for you.
Just ask the Cowboys.
Without playing a game or lifting a finger yesterday their prospects were greatly improved. As in, while they enjoyed their bye weekend every other team in the NFC East lost. Meaning the Cowboys are now 7-3 and tied with the Eagles for the division lead.
Otherwise? Seahawks lost. Saints lost. Lions lost. Redskins lost. Giants lost. And, of course, Philadelphia got housed in Green Bay to drop it into a tie with the Cowboys with two matchups looming in the next month. Granted, for Wild Card purposes it would have been better for Dallas had the 6-4 49ers lost in New York, but burying the Giants into a 3-7 grave is never a bad thing.
It was a good Sunday both in the Wild Card and NFC East.
See, sometimes you can get something for nothing.
