Can the Cowboys find their November Magic?

In the past 6 seasons of Garrett / Romo / Witten / Ware, this team has never had a season in which their winning % in November was lower than their win % in October. Whether the team is up or down, their November record has always been better than October.

2007 Oct 2-1 Nov 4-0

2008 Oct 2-2 Nov 3-1

2009 Oct 2-1 Nov 4-1

2010 Oct 0-4 Nov 2-2 (JG took over in Nov)

2011 Oct 2-2 Nov 4-0

2012 Oct 1-3 Nov 2-2

2013 Oct 2-2 Nov ??

The statistical chance of that occurring 6 seasons in a row is less than 1%.

So is this just a statistical anomaly or is there something more systematic occurring? It doesn't appear to scheduling as we know how much records can fluctuate from the year before. At least 3 of those seasons had the same number of home games in Oct and Nov. Could it be the Thanksgiving game gives the Cowboys an edge in November, or is there something in the Cowboys psyche?

Whatever the reason, lets hope that it continues into 2013. And there is every reason to expect that it should, with the Cowboys playing 3 losing teams over the month.

(and lets just hope they then break their Dec/Jan doldrums, so our November expectations don't turn into December disappointment)
