Right now, the Dallas Cowboys appear to be a team on a mission.

Whether his team won or lost the last game, Mike McCarthy has done a fantastic job of keeping them grounded.

That hasn’t altered in any way for the team now that they’ve achieved ten victories.

When questioned about his chances of winning a postseason spot, the former Super Bowl champion said that his main goal is to reach 11 victories.

It’s more important to win the division than it is to secure a postseason berth, as McCarthy reaffirmed.

Naturally, after clinching a postseason berth, teams like to kick back and unwind a little. However, the Cowboys have a legitimate chance to earn a first-round bye and home-field advantage, which could prove to be important come playoff time, especially given that they have won 15 straight games at AT&T Stadium while scoring more than 30 points per contest.

When the Cowboys declared at the start of the season that they could contend with the Philadelphia Eagles for the top spot in their division, not many people took them seriously.

In the present day, they appear to be far superior to Nick Sirianni’s squad.

And after witnessing them dominate the first 14 weeks of the regular season, you have to like their chances against every team they play, even though they still need to defeat the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC to advance to the championship game.
