The Dallas Cowboys have done exactly what they were supposed to do over the last month — win games against inferior opponents. This was the stretch when the Cowboys were supposed to surpass the New York Giants in the NFC East, winning four straight games for the first time in seemingly ever. Now they'll be going for five straight on Sunday when they travel to the desert to face the Arizona Cardinals, which hasn't been a positive proposition for the Cowboys in recent years. Go back to Christmas Day last season when the Cardinals beat the Cowboys 27-26 on a late field goal after a rousing comeback from the Cowboys, who fell into a 14-0 hole in the first quarter. That was bad, but nothing tops 2008. The Cowboys had a shot to go 5-1 out of the gates but left Arizona 4-2 after an overtime loss.

Romo: Overanalyzing my December stats is "silly"

IRVING -- Whether it's a near flawless November record or a 7-10 mark during December, Tony Romo doesn't seem to be encouraged or deflated by his win-loss percentage during those two months of the season.

Cowboys QB Kitna out at least 2 more games

Dallas Cowboys backup quarterback Jon Kitna is expected to miss at least two more games due to back problems. Kitna has been sidelined for the past two games with the injury, a reason the Cowboys put in a waiver claim when Denver released Kyle Orton.

Jones: Cowboys no longer have the ‘flu’

The Cowboys (7-4) enter the final month of the season riding high after vaulting into first place in the NFC East thanks to a four-game winning streak that included back-to-back pulsating wins. A win at Arizona (4-7) on Sunday would give Dallas its longest winning streak since claiming seven in a row over the middle of the 2007 season. It would also guarantee the Cowboys a .500...
