PLAYERS: Dez Bryant
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Jacksonville-jaguars
Following a thrilling win at home against Philadelphia the Dallas Cowboys are back in the playoff hunt. The brightest performance from Sunday nights game came from wide receiver Dez Bryant who showcased nationally his ability to be a difference maker. Bryant has been in the news multiple times this season, almost none of them for good reasons. Still, Cowboy fans are hoping that there is more of what Bryant was able to do Sunday night in store for the future. If the Cowboys are to make the playoffs big plays will be needed from Bryant. “Tony believes in me. I want that to increase,” Bryant said after the game. “It’s all about not losing composure and being focused and just doing what’s right. I feel like just me staying on top of my game makes a big difference.” That chemistry has not been there all season for the Cowboys. Romo and Bryant have not been in sync and there have even been occasions where it did not appear that Bryant was aware of the play the Cowboys were running. Against the Eagles, Bryant caught six passes for 98 yards and two game changing touchdowns. RELATED: Cowboys survive sluggish start to defeat Eagles “When your number is called you do your job,” Bryant said. “I knew it was going to come, and it did.” Over Bryant’s last four games he has 29 catches for 475 yards and six touchdowns. He is 22 yards short of his first 1,000 yard season. Asked after the game about where he stood among a crop of talented receivers in the NFL the Cowboy receiver said to ask him again after the season. “I’m very confident,” Bryant said. “I’m just getting started.”

Jerry Jones: Cowboys should be better on D

Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan has said several times that the abundance of injuries on defense are not an excuse for poor play. It's probably in his best interest to continue saying that because his boss doesn't seem to think injuries should prevent Ryan's group from playing well, which they didn't do Sunday night. The Cowboys, who held on for a 38-33 victory...

Bryant blossoming into a star for Cowboys

It's been about three weeks since Tony Romo said on local radio that Dez Bryant had done a "180" in terms of his preparation for games. Those words seemed pretty hollow in light of the fact that Bryant had never been the picture of consistency during his first three years in the league. But it turns out Tony may have been onto something. Bryant, who has made as many...

Tony Romo & His Dallas Cowboys Sure Had Owner Jerry Jones Biting His Nails Last Night Against The Eagles

Tony Romo and his Dallas Cowboys certainly have had a tough time this season beating teams that suck in the 2012 season. They barley hung on to beat the Cleveland Browns and last night the Philadelphia Eagles gave them almost more than they could deal with a back up quarterback playing. The Cowboys did hold on to get the win over the Eagles but it took a solid effort by their defense...

Cowboys Move to 6-6 with Victory over Lowly Eagles

The Cowboys move past the Eagles tonight, and move to 6-6 and somehow still in the playoff hunt. First thing, I’d like to mention is that we’re going to see some people go over board with this win, and think we’re back on track. We are not, the defense has slowly reverted back to its 2011 self, in some part due to injuries. Let’s quell the playoff talk people. There’s still...

Romo passes Aikman as Cowboys TD pass leader

Tony Romo has set a Dallas Cowboys record with his 166th touchdown pass, breaking a tie with Hall of Famer and three-time Super Bowl champion Troy Aikman. Romo's record-breaking pass was a 23-yard touchdown to Dez Bryant in the third quarter of Sunday night's game against Philadelphia. It came in Romo's 89th career start. Aikman started 165 games for the Cowboys from...

DeMarco Murray Expected To Handle Limited Role in Return

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray (foot) is expected to play Sunday night versus Philadelphia, but Adam Schefter is reporting that the Cowboys will limit his workload.Fantasy Spin:Murray hasn't played since Oct. 14 because of sprained foot so this shouldn't be a surprise to fantasy owners. Murray and Felix Jones should share the carries until Murray is completely recovered.

Five thoughts on Cowboys' win over Eagles

ARLINGTON, Texas It hasn't been the case often this season, but the Cowboys found a way to play their best football in the fourth quarter Sunday night. They scored 21 points during that 15-minute stretch and outlasted the division rival Philadelphia Eagles 38-33. Here are my five thoughts on the Cowboys improving to 6-6 on the year. 1.) The Cowboys have not traditionally played...

The Dallas Cowboys Number One Priority In The 2013 NFL Draft Should Be To Bolster Their Running Game

    The Cowboys stand at 6-6 with four tough games (Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Washington) remaining.  Another season left out of even making the playoffs is highly likely.  One of the primary reasons for the disappointing season is a pedestrian ground game.  It is trendy to say the NFL is all about passing, but a balanced offense and a stingy defense still results...
