As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end. That's exactly what happened Sunday night against the Giants. Not only did the 10-7 loss snap an 11-game win streak, the longest in Cowboys history, but it also snapped the month-long streak of the Cowboys being at No. 1 in the NFL power rankings. Fortunately, they didn't move too far and currently sit second behind the Patriots in the Week 15 rankings.
