The fact the Cowboys are playing a bad opponent that's lost 7 straight games puts added pressure on them to not only win but to look good doing it. A game like this is almost like being in a no win situation unless you win in a blowout. Playing a real bad opponent that's playing for next year puts more pressure on a head coach and their team than if they were playing a real good team.
Excuses can be made if you lose to a hot team that's riding high but man you lose at home AGAIN after what happened on Thanksgiving to a crappy team like Philly whose star players are all out with injuries Jerry is going to be at a loss for words. Both he and Garrett will look like they've been hit by a truck during their post game interviews if the Cowboys lose this game.
