The Cowboys are in a somewhat precarious position when it comes to the playoffs.
They are leading the NFC East and control their own destiny to at least host a playoff game on wild-card weekend. Home-field advantage is also within reach, just as much as missing the playoffs altogether.
What does the star quarterback think of it all?
“We feel like we’ve been in the playoffs for the entire month of December,” Tony Romo said. “You knew going into Chicago [two weeks ago] that if you didn’t win that game, it was going to be very difficult to have any chance at getting in.

“We’re just going to keep that attitude and keep going.”
Romo has a 1-3 career postseason record, and has yet to play in a conference championship game. He and the Cowboys are hopeful to change that this season.
If the playoffs started today, for what it’s worth, the Cowboys would be the No. 3-seeded team in the NFC and host the Packers in the wild-card round.
