If they're America's Team, then why does everyone root against the Cowboys? It's a rhetorical question, you don't need answer.
Dallas is playing a lot better this season, and despite their 3-3 record, they should have beat the Lions and lost to the 49ers in OT. Wins in those two games would have made them 5-1, and they'd probably be considered the 2nd best team in the NFC.
This is a big one to decide the NFC East. The Giants barely beat the Dolphins at home today to proof that no one is going to pull away in their division. It could come down to these divisional games to decide the playoff tie-breaker.
