Saturday Night Open Thread: Cowboys at Buccaneeers

ARLINGTON, TX - DECEMBER 11: Dan Bailey #5 of the Dallas Cowboys misses a field goal late in the fourth quarter that was blocked by Jason Pierre-Paul #90 of the New York Giants at Cowboys Stadium on December 11, 2011 in Arlington, Texas. (Photo by Ronald Martinez/Getty Images)

This game looked a whole lot better on the schedule before the season began. The Buccaneers aren't the worst team in the NFC. That honor still belongs to the Rams who are 2-11 and forced to start a quarterback they just claimed off waivers). The Bucs aren't even as bad as the Vikings.

But they are really bad, and maybe Jason Garrett will be fired if he loses this game. The Cowboys should win it, but they should have won their last two games. Instead they suffered two fourth quarter collapses that took away their lead in the NFC East, and pushed them entirely out of the playoff picture. They've just got to win some games.
