    1.) The Cowboys have not traditionally played well in December under Tony Romo. The Cowboys quarterback, who improved to 9-13 during the month, took advantage of all of his weapons Sunday night against the Eagles. Romo was nearly flawless, finishing 22-of-27 for 303 yards and three touchdowns, and that’s still despite a below average offensive line. The Cowboys playoff window is small, but to keep it open, Romo has to play at the same mistake-free level he did in front of a national TV audience at Cowboys Stadium. It’s fitting that he set the team’s franchise touchdown passing record in this game.

    2.) It’s hard to believe Doug Free is going to be one of the highest-paid tackles in the NFL over the next two seasons. His disastrous season continued with his NFL-leading 13th penalty. He also allowed Eagles third-year defensive end Brandon Graham to record 1.5 sacks. Graham had 4.5 career sacks entering Sunday night’s game. If Jerry Jones could have one contract back, it would have to be the four-year, $32 million deal he gave Free last year.

    3.) I guess that’s what the offense can look like when everyone’s healthy. Sure, the Eagles aren’t good. I’m not saying the Cowboys offensive weapons showcased their talent against the NFL’s best. But there’s upside with a focused Dez Bryant and a healthy DeMarco Murray. Bryant has certainly quieted the critics over the last four games, totaling 475 yards and six touchdowns along the way. Combine those youngsters with Miles Austin playing four quarters and the usual steadiness of Jason Witten and the Cowboys make you think: What could have been?
