    Cowboys have productive bye weekDallas gains ground with losses by NFC East rivals, gets time for injured players to heal
    By Todd Archer

    IRVING, Texas -- For not playing a game, the Dallas Cowboys could not have had a better Sunday.

    While they were sitting at home, their NFC East rivals suffered stinging losses. Being 2-2 doesn't look so bad.

    The Philadelphia Eagles , the preseason favorites to win the division and so-called dream team, continued their nightmare with a defeat at the Buffalo Bills to fall to 1-4 on the season. The New York Giants lost to the Seattle Seahawks at home, falling to 3-2.

    Of course, the Eagles' and Giants' losses might also make the Cowboys' defeats to the New York Jets and the Detroit Lions even more painful because the Cowboys could be in a much better situation heading up to face the New England Patriots next week.

    not really. We beat the 49ers in OT...without Dez and Miles. And with Romo playing with a broken rib and punctured lung. We were fortunate to get that one. And on 3rd and 21 the Redskins sent an all out blitz...the chances of converting 3rd and 21 is less than 10%...again we were fortunate. The 2 games we lost we SHOULD have won...the 2 we WON we SHOULD have lost. We are 2-2. Now could we have won all 4 games? Sure. I would agree we were closer to 4-0 than 0-4.
