So these next 4 games will give us a much better idea of just how good (or bad) this Cowboys team is than games against teams like Philly or Cleveland. We have to show that we're better than these teams if we're going to have any chance to make noise in the playoffs.
I don't disagree, I was just pointing out that every game from here on out is essentially a playoff game ..... although I think that we might be able to lose one and remain alive under certain scenarios. If we do get into the playoffs and manage to win one or two, it will be 2 straight months of playoff games every weekend - kind of cool, but of course it could end abruptly, like this weekend for instance.
