The Cowboys are off on their bye week, but the excitement is building as the playoff races tighten elsewhere across the NFL.
Even without the Cowboys playing, there are plenty of games to root for, including a unique trio of games whose outcome will be good for the Cowboys, regardless of who wins:
San Francisco @ New York Giants
Philadelphia @ Green Bay
Detroit @ Arizona
The Cardinals, Lions, Packers, and Eagles are all competitors for playoff spots and playoff seeds. Any one of them losing will be good for the Cowboys. The 49ers hold a head-to-head advantage over the Cowboys, so seeing them lose would be nice, while seeing the Giants lose would be nice on principle.
And without further ado, here are our picks for Week 11, 2014.
