I read an interesting fact today on dallasnews.com.
The Cowboys have not won a season finale since 1999 when they beat the New York Giants, 26-18, at Texas Stadium. Of course, that was another win-and-in game, like this week’s game at Philly. Since, then they’re 0-8.
The last time the Cowboys won a road season finale? You have to go all the way back to 1995 when they beat Arizona, 37-13.
Wow… I knew that we hadn’t done so well in the last couple of season finales, but I had no idea we had not won a finale since 1999.
I guess it’s only poetic justice, that we now face a must win game on the road against one of our most hated rivals, the Eagles.
I do believe that many of our players will take that field with something to prove. I can sense a certain anger and determination to prove that last weekends game against the Ravens was a fluke.
I expect the defense to go full tilt from the start of the game up until the final grueling second. There will be no blown coverages, or blatant mistakes.
This time, it’s going to be different.
This time, the Cowboys will seal the deal.
