    ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cowboys again were faced with rallying from a double-digit hole. But unlike the Thanksgiving Day loss to the Washington Redskins, Dallas managed to catch up to the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Dallas defeated Philadelphia, 38-33, to end an eight-game losing streak on Sunday Night Football and keep its playoff hopes alive, slim as they are.

    What it means: The Cowboys are back to .500 and are one of three NFC teams at 6-6. They are fighting for a possible NFC East title and possibly a wild-card berth. The New York Giants currently command first place in the division. Getting the sixth seed of the final wild-card spot might prove difficult. Seattle holds the sixth spot, and the Cowboys would lose a tie-breaker to the Seahawks as a result of the Week 2 loss. The Cowboys most likely will have to win out to reach 10 wins and possibly earn the division title to make the playoffs.

    Murray returns: After missing six games, starting running back DeMarco Murray returned and finished with 83 yards on 23 carries and one touchdown. Murray, who was out with a sprained left foot, gained 14 yards on his first carry of the game. The Cowboys medical staff monitored Murray throughout the game to make sure he could maintain the workload. Not only did Murray start the game, but the Cowboys also turned to him to close the game.

    Playoff hopes are downright anorexic.
