They tried again for the third year in a row.
However, hopes for post-season play were a no-go.
Victory for the Cowboys turned out to be a no-show.
Chances for getting to the playoffs were slim.
The guiding light to show the way was quite dim.
Dallas met the Philadelphia Eagles on their home field.
Bitter disappointment was what the Sunday night game would yield.
The Eagles offense and defense showed power and poise.
They proved to be too much to handle for the Cowboys.
In the last game, AT&T field was no stately pleasure dome.
When the game was over, sad Cowboys fans just went home.
