The Dallas Cowboys are losers of four straight games after a close affair with the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers. The Cowboys now drop to 2-7, and with each new week improve their draft position. In the process, they did actually play pretty good football for most of the game as it came down to the final series to determine the winner.

The Cowboys are on a bye this week, so they’ll have some time to rest up, and when they return they’ll have seven more games on the docket. Let’s take a look to see how some of their future opponents fared this past weekend.
