After entering the season considered Super Bowl contenders, the Cowboys are just 6-4 and need to pull a Week 12 upset to avoid falling to a game above .500. They travel to New England on Sunday afternoon to face the Patriots, who recovered from a big loss against the Ravens to beat the Eagles in Week 11.

Dallas owes its record largely to a weak NFC East and favorable overall schedule. The Cowboys have not beaten a team above .500, and the combined record of the teams they have beaten is a truly abysmal 15-44-1.

The Patriots, on the other hand, looked unstoppable until Lamar Jackson’s Baltimore squad provided them a rather thorough beatdown at M&T Bank Stadium. New England returned from that to sneak out of Philadelphia with a 17-10 win last week.
