    Breaks arrive, but playoff hopes leave

    by Calvin Watkins

    ARLINGTON, Texas -- Jason Garrett said Thursday that there are no moral victories in the NFL.

    You don't make the playoffs just by playing hard. You make the postseason and reach your goals by winning games. The playing-hard part is an expectation, like paying the mortgage.

    The Cowboys are starting to get breaks, such as Jesse Holley's forced fumble on Reggie Bush's punt return. But they couldn't pull off the win.

    The Dallas Cowboys unofficially eliminated themselves from any possible postseason berth with a heartbreaking 30-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Thanksgiving Day at Cowboys Stadium.

    Garrett's team erased a 17-point deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter but then couldn't maintain it in a frantic five-minute span.
