The Dallas Cowboys are set to visit the Baltimore Ravens on Tuesday night, and despite a long rest since their last game which took place on Thanksgiving Day, they are beat up. Monday brought the news that the Cowboys were placing Zack Martin and Steven Parker on injured reserve and in the spirit of one of life’s undeniable truths... what goes up must come down.

Around lunchtime on Tuesday, the Cowboys announced that they have promoted tackle Jordan Mills and cornerback Saivion Smith from the practice squad to the active roster ahead of the night’s matchup against the Ravens. They will both be eligible to play.

It will be difficult enough for the Cowboys to win at Baltimore as quarterback Lamar Jackson is going to play, but going against them with a weakened roster is only going to make matters more difficult.

Time will tell if the Cowboys can pull off a similar league-wide shock as the Washington Football Team did on Monday night by defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers. The NFC East is hardly in the place that we forecasted it would be at week’s beginning, but this is the league where anything is possible.

Dallas and Baltimore kick off at 8:05pm ET.
