The Dallas Cowboys have been anything but convincing in the 2011 NFL season, but they're on top of the NFC East. It's partially due to their schedule and partially due to a collapse by the New York Giants, but Jerry Jones and Jason Garrett won't care much about the reasoning behind their position. All that really matters is that the Cowboys control their own playoff destiny. They play another relatively soft opponent on Sunday when they face the Arizona Cardinals.
The Cards are not a bad team by any stretch of the imagination, but backup quarterback John Skelton has not been reliable in the absence of Kevin Kolb. However, Kolb has participated in practice this week and should return to being the starting quarterback. The Cowboys haven't been good on the road this season, so an upset doesn't seem out of the question.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, Dec. 4, 4:15 p.m. ET
Location: University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale, AZ
Spread: Cowboys favored by 5.5
