At this point in the season ... ord-jersey , rooting for the Dallas Cowboys to make the playoffs is an act of faith. Watching the Cowboys struggle to a 3-4 record makes it hard to have real confidence that some kind of run is on its way. but most of the time if you can get to that record you likely make the playoffs, then the Cowboys have to finish up with a 7-2 record. The Amari Cooper trade adds hope that the offense can get on track, at least somewhat, and ditto the move to replace Paul Alexander as the offensive line coach. With a defense that is the second-best in the league at not allowing points, just an average, consistent offense would change things dramatically.Even if that happens, going 7-2 is a tall task for any team. Injuries, freak plays, bad referee calls, any number of random occurrences can derail a team in a football game. The Cowboys upcoming schedule reads as such:Tennessee@ Philadelphia@ AtlantaWashingtonNew OrleansPhiladelphia@ IndianapolisTampa BayNew York (Giants)The trick is to get to 7-2 out of that. The most likely route would be to lose at Philadelphia and at home against New Orleans and sweep the rest. Those are the kind of odds the Cowboys are up against barring a meltdown by the rest of the NFC East.For specific odds, we turn to They give the Cowboys a 21% chance of making the playoffs ... ier-jersey , a one in five shot.When runs its 100,000 simulations of upcoming games, they basically peg Dallas as an 8-8 team.
