Cowboys Wishlist: Taco Charlton Keeps It Up

The NFL regular season is coming to an end. To finish what was a very dramatic season, the will head to New York to face their East rivals, the Giants, on a meaningless matchup. Although they're already division champions and are headed to the postseason, there are still a few wishes I'd like to write down for the regular season finale.

I hope you enjoy the final “” of the year. Let me know what your wishes are in the comments section below or tweet them @MauNFL!

Wish #1: No Injuries

The Dallas Cowboys have it all locked up for the . They've clinched the NFC's fourth seed and are mathematically unable to go either up or down on the conference's playoff picture. What exactly will be 's plan regarding his starters playing time remains to be seen, but his comments to the media point toward every healthy player playing.

Whether that's true or not, I simply wish they avoid any unnecessary in a meaningless game prior to the NFC round.

Dallas Cowboys Need More From RB Rod Smith

Wish #2: Let Smith and Jackson Lead Running Game

deserves a break, doesn't he? I understand if every other starter plays in New York, but I honestly wouldn't understand if Elliott gets a meaningful amount of snaps. Out of all the healthy players, Zeke is the one I'd sit on the bench the entire game.

The Cowboys will really need him come the postseason and they could use with a fresh, rested Zeke. Let and recently signed take a handful of snaps. Smith could handle a heavier workload than usual and keep the chains moving.

Wish #3: Get Red Zone Offense Right

The Dallas Cowboys have a legit that could take on any other team in the NFL. However, the same cannot be said about their . Playcalling and execution have been inconsistent all year long and now they have one more chance to get it right before it's “win or out” football. Considering the team allegedly plans to play its starters, let's hope they manage to fix things when in the .

Hopefully and company get a quite a few opportunities to make this happen and score touchdowns.

Wish #4: Taco Charlton Ends Season on a High Note

spent two consecutive weeks as a “healthy scratch” for the Cowboys prior to . Last Sunday, he was active and got to play more than expected after was ruled out with an injury versus the . Taco had a nice showing as he participated in 58% of the defensive snaps.

He racked up five tackles and a for loss. He was also able to get a couple of pressures. Crawford didn't make the trip to New York, which will leave a huge opportunity for Charlton this Sunday against the .
