Having escaped a scare at the hands of the Texans, the Cowboys hope their lessons learned help them in their battle with against the much more dangerous Jaguars
FRISCO, Texas — Win and get in. That's the situation for the Dallas Cowboys this week, able to clinch a playoff seed for the second consecutive season if they're able to defeat the very-capable Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 15.
It took a 98-yard game-winning drive to defeat the one-win Houston Texans, and the Cowboys will soon discover how much better the Jaguars are than their AFC South counterparts — in large part due to what Doug Pedersen has been able to achieve with former first-overall pick Trevor Lawrence.
The two have combined to generate plenty of offense in recent weeks, winners of their last two outings (including a 36-point shelling of the Tennessee Titans in Week 14), and they'll square off against a Cowboys secondary that is without Jourdan Lewis and Anthony Brown; putting the onus on former second-round pick Kelvin Joseph to evolve expeditiously in December.
The two teams rarely meet, only seven times total, and while the Cowboys hold the slight edge (4-3), the Jaguars are looking to even the score and keep Dallas' playoff hopes on hold for at least one more week.
