Thoughts and dreams of a 10-6 season for your Dallas Cowboys professional football team very much exist because of this two-game winning streak against teams that are both under .500 and are a combined 9-15.
With four football games remaining on their regular season slate, the Cowboys are scheduled to play only one team with a winning record (Philly is 7-5). This means the Cowboys will win the NFC East, and host a playoff game ... which they will win. Cue lifetime contract for head football coach Jason Garrett.
The good teams in the NFL, and at 7-5 and in first place in the NFC East the Cowboys are a "good team", are winning at home. En masse.
The Cowboys lone home loss was a 51-48 defeat against the Denver Broncos; should have won that game, but ...
This is what the Cowboys should have been doing since Jerry Jones and the City of Arlington combined to spend more than $1 billion dollars to make a football stadium.
For the first time since the Cowboys moved into Jerry World, they actually have a decided home field advantage. This is the team's home record in the regular season since re-locating to Arlington.
There is a good chance the Cowboys will finish with a 7-1 home record. The last time the Cowboys finished with a 7-1 home record, or better, was 1999 - the Cowboys finished 8-8 that year.
