Recapping the Cowboys' week

By Todd Archer

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys are in a must-win situation Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Maybe not technically, but realistically they are.

With three games left, they trail the Philadelphia Eagles by a game. In order to make the Week 17 meeting vs. the Eagles mean something, the Cowboys will have to match what Philadelphia does, and you always go with the premise it will win out.

So the Cowboys must win out.

Winning out starts Sunday, but there is more to recap this week than just what the Cowboys have to do to beat the Packers.

Sean Lee's absence will have the Cowboys scrambling. The good news: they are 2-0 without him.

The Cowboys need DeMarcus Ware to be DeMarcus Ware. Jean-Jacques Taylor wonders if he will ever be that guy.

Coordinator Monte Kiffin is struggling, but he’s not quitting.

With as much as the defense has struggled, the offense will have to pick up the slack.

Tony Romo is embracing the challenge of the last three games.

It’s been a struggle for Miles Austin, but he’s holding out hope for a strong finish.
