    Cowboys Take Crucial First Step To Salvage Season

    In the eyes of many, Sunday was a no-win situation for the .

    Either they were going to go on the road and lose to an 0-6 team, dropping their record to 2-4 and possibly ending any semblance of playoff hopes. Or, they were going to beat that 0-6 team, and most of the league wouldn't even blink.

    Instead, the Cowboys found a third option on Sunday, beating down the 40-10 in a game that wasn't even that close. Beating them down so bad that the rest of the league has no option but to realize the Cowboys are back on the “contender” list going forward.

    And, boy, did they ever need to win a game like that.

    Sure the 49ers are a bad football team and if the Cowboys are actually good they should be expected to beat up on them, but a 30 point road win is a 30 point road win. End of story.

    The main takeaways from Sunday's win are pretty obvious. is an elite , and has the ability to take over any game once he has the ball. is already one of the better starting quarterbacks in the league, and can do it both on the ground and through the air. The Cowboys  can be a top-tier unit when clicking. And, lastly, both and are really good, especially when playing with a lead.

    Did I cover it all? I think that's pretty much the story of yesterday and of the 2017 Dallas Cowboys. The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly For Boys Against 49ers 2

    But as great as yesterday's win was, and don't get me wrong it was fantastic, these next four games is where the Cowboys will make or break their season. With a key divisional match up against the up next, Dallas has a realistic shot to get back over .500 before running the / gauntlet.

    I hate to call any non-elimination game a “must win,” but next Sunday's game with Washington feels like it very well might be that. The Eagles appear to be here to stay, and either Dallas or Washington suffering a loss next week will be crucial down the stretch. Especially when you consider who the Cowboys have to play to finish off this season.

    Today's NFL is more about surviving and advancing each week than it is anything else. Each week we see really weird results and upsets you wouldn't expect. By simply avoiding and keeping their heads above water, the Cowboys have given themselves a chance to make a run.

    With that being said, we will break down the upcoming game, and recap the win over the 49ers in much more detail here at over the course of the week.

    For now, I think it's okay to simply be happy about blowing out a professional football team the way the Cowboys did yesterday.

    Totally agree with you.Great win off the bye, good play in all phases. Honestly, the way the Falcons played last night, maybe that game is just a tick less scary than before. These next two are huge for sure. We need to stack wins in the East before seeing Philly. If the offense keeps progressing, and Zeke keeps playing, this season still has a chance to be something special. Continued improvement from the defense would be well received as well.

    Kaepernick has to be laughing at how far the 49’ers have fallen so quickly. They looked hapless and ready to go home in the 3rd quarter. I know they can’t match up the Cowboys offensive talent, but there is already almost no fight in them just 7 games into the season.

    It being a day to honor their 1980’s players who won titles – which all started with “The Catch” to beat Dallas in the 1981 (82) NFC Title game – nothing could be more fitting than the Cowboys embarrassing them at home.

    Cowboys fans who watched that game still count it as one that got away. Dallas was in control of the game throughout the 2nd half, up by 6 with 3 minutes left. Landry went into a prevent D and Montana chipped them all the way down the field to score.

    The entire game link below if you have the time. Danny White, Tony Dorsett, Drew Pearson, Tony Hill, Butch Johnson, Doug Cosbie – very excellent offensive unit >
