Cowboys continue on a roll
The Dallas Cowboys arrive in Atlanta to take on the Falcons this weekend in second place in the NFC East Division with a three-game winning streak.
Winners over the San Francisco 49ers, Washington Redskins and Kansas City Chiefs in their last three outings, the Cowboys currently occupy a Wild Card place in the NFC.
Dak Prescott completed 21-of-33 for 249 yards and a couple of touchdowns against the Chiefs, with the Dallas signal caller also adding a further score on the ground in the 28-17 victory at the AT & T Stadium in Arlington.
Ezekiel Elliott rumbled for 93 yards on 27 carries and the Cowboys running back continues to be available for Dallas as he battles the NFL over a potential six-game suspension.
The Seattle Seahawks, who the Cowboys play later in the campaign, are tied with Dallas with a 5-3 record, with the Falcons, Detroit Lions, Washington Redskins, Green Bay Packers and Arizona Cardinals all within a game.
As such Elliott's availability in the second half of the season continues to be the story that the Cowboys must deal with until the issue is resolved.
Next week Dallas returns home to entertain the Division leading Philadelphia Eagles. Unbeaten in seven straight and with an 8-1 record, the Eagles have their bye this week, something they will no doubt hope adds to their advantage in taking on the Cowboys.
Philadelphia and Dallas will meet for a second time in the final game of the regular season and it would not be a shock for the Division to come down to that game, despite the current lead that the Eagles enjoy over the Cowboys.
