Dallas – The Cowboys were on a serious upward trend after putting the clamps on New Orleans at the end of November, then beating the Eagles in overtime. But the offense has really sputtered the past two games, with Dallas on the wrong end of a 23-0 shutout against Indianapolis, and struggling to move the ball last week against Tampa Bay. The Dallas offense has accounted for 20 points in the past two games combined — the defense scored on a fumble return against the Buccaneers — and two of those touchdown drives against Tampa Bay covered lengths of four and five yards. Amari Cooper, who had been scorching, had a combined 36 yards in receptions the past two weeks. That said, the Dallas defense is solid, and the Cowboys will get a home playoff game as NFC East champions.
