The Dallas Cowboys barely beat two teams going nowhere and couldn't hang with Robert Griffin III in a loss during their three-game homestand.
Now the schedule turns to winning teams fighting for the playoffs, and the Cowboys need those games and probably some help getting to the postseason.
Dallas (6-6) visits Cincinnati on Sunday before returning home to face Pittsburgh. The Bengals and Steelers are tied for second in the AFC North at 7-5.
Tony Romo says the Cowboys are "playing for our playoff lives" as the NFC wild-card race tightens up.
Romo broke Troy Aikman's franchise record of 165 passing touchdowns in a 38-33 victory against Philadelphia on Sunday night.
