7. Dallas Cowboys (LW: 8)

Maybe this isn’t your older brother’s Cowboys. Typically believed to crumble at the end of seasons – despite numerous opportunities to secure playoff berths, Dallas hasn’t reached the postseason since 2009 – the Cowboys won a critical Sunday Night Football game in Philadelphia to regain its lead in the NFC East. More impressively, the Cowboys showed some resiliency in the process, not only rebounding from a Thanksgiving blowout at the hands of these same Eagles, but recovering mid-game from a blown lead. In the crowded NFC playoff picture, it is growing more likely that a double-digit win team may miss the playoffs. With a one-game lead in the division with two to play, the Cowboys suddenly look like the most likely NFC East representative.
