Last week: 7 (-4)

Record: 9-4

Net points per drive: 0.11 (13th)

DVOA: -0.5% (15th)

Weighted DVOA: 2.1% (13th)

If they can win week 16 against the Bengals, they should still be in the playoffs regardless, even after a loss to the Chargers at home. The Bengals really missed a chance at home for Dallas this week. I think they get that one and while they’re at it, I think they win in Dallas and at home for Cleveland and run the table. 10-6 will mean the 5 seed and a road playoff game in the first round and they have documented road issues over the past couple of seasons. I don’t think they’d win in New England or Denver, so they better hope they get the Ravens in the first round. That would be a tough game too, but at least they already won there.
