    Spagnola: Bryant Must Turn Back The Clock

    IRVING, Texas – Thirteen days short of 20 years ago to the day, the Dallas Cowboys found themselves in a similar situation to what they're currently in heading into Sunday's noon showdown with the Buffalo Bills at Cowboys Stadium.

    See, the 4-4 Cowboys are somewhat at a crossroads in this 2011 season facing the 5-3 Bills many think are just better, even though they have lost two of their past three games and the Cowboys have won two of their past three games. And get this, each having lost three of their past five.

    Win, and maybe for the first time since the final three games of the 2009 season the Cowboys can go on a little winning streak, knowing up next are the 3-5 Redskins, the 1-7 Dolphins on Thanksgiving and the 2-6 Cardinals. Lose, and the perception will be the win-one-lose-one, win-two-lose-two Cowboys are staring down the barrel of a .500 season.

    All I know is, 5-4 looks significantly better than 4-5.

    Now back in November of 1991, in the third year of Jerry Jones' ownership and Jimmy Johnson taking over for Tom Landry, the Cowboys were 6-5, having lost two straight and three of the past five. Back then the Cowboys also were teetering at that .500 level, trying to break a stretch of five consecutive losing seasons....
