IRVING, Texas -- With one game to go, the Cowboys are in last place in the NFC East and need to beat Philadelphia on Sunday and for Washington to lose to the New York Giants to finish third in the division.
Maybe it's not such a tough task after Minnesota’s No. 3 quarterback Joe Webb beat the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on Tuesday. It looks like the Cowboys’ No. 3 quarterback, Stephen McGee, will have to make his first career start vs. Philadelphia.
Let's assume for a moment that there will be a full slate of games in 2011 and the NFL and players association come to an agreement on a CBA. Here is how the Cowboys’ 2011 schedule (excluding division foes) would look based on a third- or fourth-place finish:
Home – St. Louis, Seattle, Buffalo, Miami, Detroit or Minnesota
Away – Arizona, San Francisco, New England, New York Jets, Carolina (fourth) or Tampa Bay (third)
