As it stands right now, there are eight teams in the NFC with a realistic chance of making the playoffs, with six weeks left in the season. The problem is; there will be a maximum of four spots available for those eight teams.Just two weeks ago, I would have said the New York Giants were a lock to win the NFC East, but with consecutive losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals, they find their lead shrinking to the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have won their last two games, at Philadelphia in week 10 and home against the Cleveland Browns in week 11. The Cowboys are only one game behind the defending Super Bowl champions in the East.Of the eight teams vying for those two division titles (Giants and Cowboys in the NFC East, Bears, Packers and Vikings in the NFC North) and the two wild-card spots (Saints, Seahawks, Buccaneers), the Cowboys have the easiest remaining schedule. Their remaining opponents win percentage is a subpar .458, compared to the Giants, who have the s...

ASHBURN, VA.-- Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is as useful as any calendar.
He makes it obvious when its November.
It started for us two weeks back, Romo told reporters at Redskins Park on a conference call Tuesday. Weve been putting our head down and grinding, going forward and trying put together win after win.
Romo enters the Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Washington...

It’s another Thanksgiving and it is another game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins. Today the Cowboys will face RGIII the rookie sensation that has taken the N.F.L. by storm this season. Robert Griffin III could give the Cowboys defense fits today. The Cowboys had a tough time trying to stop the Cleveland Browns last Sunday, in this game the Cowboys defense...
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. Obviously, he’s a tremendous athlete and they say he is a hell of a kid. I don’t like him, but I know he is very...
ARLINGTON, Texas When the Cowboys led the Redskins, 3-0, in the first quarter Thursday, the skies were blue through the open roof at Cowboys Stadium.
Then dark clouds rolled in and a light rain began. Even if you're not into omens, it was pretty spooky that the darkness coincided with the Redskins taking the control of the game.
Washington scored 28 points in the second quarter...
As the Cowboys navigate past the 10 game barrier in their season and in to the stretch drive, we now have enough data to begin to learn about this team based on what they do well and more importantly, it seems, what they don't do well at all.
We know that this team has the fewest 10 play drives in the NFL. Of the Cowboys 112 drives, only 11 have lasted 10 plays. That is lower...
In an effort to take my own advice, I would like to remind any and all that the ugliest win in the world is better than the prettiest defeat. Also, that wins are very difficult to find in this league, so the last thing you want to do is to get picky about how aesthetically pleasing to the eye a victory might be.
But, wow. Nothing comes easy for your 2012 Dallas Cowboys. And they...
After last week's drought, Captain Comeback Scott Kacsmar has five comebacks to dissect this week. Matt Schaub and Houston set a bunch of records, Atlanta won in unusual fashion, and Tony Romo ties Staubach.
Through 11 weeks, there can be no doubt about which quarterback in the NFC East is having the best 2012 season. And his name is not Eli Manning.Thanks to a spectacular performance on Sunday by rookie Robert Griffin III, Washington thumped hapless Philadelphia to keep faint playoff hopes alive. And while Manning and the Giants rested, Tony Romo and Dallas managed to squeeze out an...
Hey, let’s play Predictions! Last week’s winner is Donk Donkerson, who accurately predicted the Redskins-Eagles blowout. A reminder on how it works, for the uninitiated:
Our Redskins-loving “staff” makes predictions in the post, readers make predictions in the comments, and the commenter who comes closest to predicting the final score gets to make a guest post. Hip-hip!
One of the great traditions we have here at Idiots on Sports is wishing our readers a Happy Thanksgiving the only way we know how - by celebrating the great Les Nessman Turkey Drop episode from WKRP in Cincinnati. So dear friends, may you eat too much, drink too much and fall into a turkey coma while Tony Romo throws wildly into coverage in the fourth quarter of a close game. It...
I’m not sure what Jerry Jones was looking at on Sunday, but I have to chalk his latest statements up to optimism and the joy of his Dallas Cowboys escaping Sunday with a win against the Cleveland Browns.
Whatever the reason was, Jones was in a complimentary mood Sunday evening. While addressing the media Sunday, Jones blurted out that he was more than pleased with the performance...
When is the Thanksgiving Day game between the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys? The game is scheduled for 4:15 PM EST and will be played in Cowboys Stadium located in Arlington, TX.
You may be wondering what is the line for the game? The latest lines have the Cowboys favored by three points with a over/under of 47.
Last week I walked away unscathed after going 2-0 along with the Steelers push at +3 so that goes as a non-pick basically, but I’ll take 10-1-1 on the year, and this week I’m making six picks, three for Thursday and three for Sunday, because it’s Thanksgiving folks!
