December slumping Cowboys would be out of playoffs if season ended today

A week ago the Cowboys were one field goal away from taking a two-game lead in the NFC East.

Now they riding a two-game losing streak and sitting in a first place tie with the Giants atop the divsion with 7-6 records.

Because of the head to head win, the Giants would be the division champs if the playoffs started today with the Cowboys sitting at home. They are behind the Lions and Falcons in the wild card playoff chase.

The Cowboys have three remaining games against the Buccaneers, Eagles and at the Giants in the season.

They are not without hope as if the Cowboys win out they would win the division. 

But they have certainly made things tough on themselves and given the seemingly dead Giants new life and the inside track to the division title.

The Giants came into the game riding a four-game losing streak. Now they just need two win two of their final three games, including the season final at home against the Cowboys to claim the NFC East title.

"It's a division game," said receiver Laurent Robinson. "It was for first place in the NFC East. It's tough. It's a hard pill to swallow."

It's par for the course for a Cowboys team that has traditionally slumped in December. They are now riding a two-game December losing streak after winning four straight in November.
