Cowboys news and notes

Dallas should have everyone available for tomorrow's tilt with KC, both CB Anthony Henry and CB Aaron Glenn are expected to play.

One guy who's a little anxious to play is LB Mike Barrow, who hasn't played in a game since 2003. Tis the season:

"I'm just a kid waiting on Christmas," Barrow said. "(The game) can't come soon enough."

Remember earlier in the year when we were winning the close games, the ones decided by less than six points? During that stretch Parcells kept saying if you play games that close you are going to lose as many as you win. Turns out the Tuna is right, Dallas is 4-4 this year in games decided by less than six points.

Scoreboard Watching:

The New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles meet at 3:05 p.m. Although the Eagles (5-7) have won eight of their past nine NFC East games in December, they have struggled through this season without many of their marquee players. The Cowboys will be pulling for an Eagles victory, which will not only drop the Giants to 8-5, but leave them with a 3-2 record in the NFC East, same as the Cowboys currently sport.

Carolina, the NFC South leader, play host to Tampa Bay at noon. To slide into a tie for the top wild-card spot in the NFC, the Cowboys need Carolina to repeat it's Week Nine victory over the Bucs. Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme is 5-0 during his career against Tampa Bay.

Washington (6-6) visits the Arizona Cardinals, trying to vault itself back into the playoff picture.
