NEW YORK (AP) Comments on the Dallas Cowboys by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):
DALLAS COWBOYS (16)
Chris Berman (ESPN, 18) - Somehow back in the hunt.
Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 17) - Tony Romo and the Cowboys face another crucial December.
Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 15)
Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 18) - Different team with a healthy DeMarco Murray at RB.
Bob Glauber (Newsday, 15) - Tony Romo surpasses Troy Aikman in career touchdowns as the Cowboys hang on against Philly and keep their playoff hopes alive. Soft schedule down the stretch works in their favor.
Rick Gosselin (Dallas Morning News, 16) - The Cowboys have become notoriously slow starters. They've been outscored in the first half, 68-27, over the last four games.
Clark Judge (CBSSports.com, 15) - Yeah, I know the Cowboys are only a game out of first. But why does this seem like an 8-8 team waiting to happen?
Ira Kaufman (Tampa Tribune, 16) - There's no margin for error heading to Cincinnati.
Pat Kirwan (SiriusXM NFL Radio/CBSSports.com, 16) - They could make the playoffs if they can win four in a row. Dez Bryant never looked so good.
John Lynch (Fox Sports, 15) - Romo looked really good in the second half. Problem is, he needed to as the Cowboys let Nick Foles and the Eagles hang 33 on them.
Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 15) - As reinforced by a 38-33 victory over Philadelphia, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo deserves a spot in the playoffs with the way he's performing. The same can't be said about some of his struggling teammates (I'm looking at you, Doug Free).
Dan Pompei (Chicago Tribune, 16) - Don't forget about the Cowboys. Tony Romo has thrown 10 touchdowns and two interceptions over the last five games.
