Doubts have also grown just a little bigger about head coach Jason Garrett's ability to weather this storm. The Cowboys aren't completely out of it at 5-6, but they are not far from it. The Cowboys are now tied with the Redskins for second place in the NFC East with the Redskins currently owning the head-to-head tiebreaker. The Giants are 6-4 and on a two-game losing streak.

Rob Ryan: Hopefully Robert Griffin III has a bad Thanksgiving

Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan faces a tough task Thursday in trying to stop Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. “He is a special player,” said Ryan via The Dallas Morning News. “That’s why they traded half a team to get him.
