Dallas Cowboys: Week 11 NFL Power Rankings (#12)

Last week: 17 (-5)

Record: 4-5

I said anything could happen in the Dallas/Philadelphia game. Apparently me believing in the Cowboys again qualifies. They play 5 of their last 7 at home. After having the league’s toughest schedule through 8 games, they have the league’s 2nd easiest over their final 7 and that includes Pittsburgh, who just lost their starting quarterback and might be the only above average team left on their schedule. They don’t have to play the Giants like they did last year. They rank 10th in yards per play differential and 12th in rate of sustaining drives differential. They haven’t turned the ball over in the last 2 weeks and their turnover differential is improving, something I said would probably happen. If they can go +0 in turnovers or better the rest of the way, they can win 9 or 10 games and the division.
