OAKLAND, Calif. — The Cowboys have two games remaining. They need to win both and get some help to make the playoffs.

But Sunday night's 20-17 win over the Oakland Raiders keeps hope alive. Dallas is riding a three-game winning streak with relatively good health and star running back Ezekiel Elliott returning from a six-game suspension.
"A lot of things are falling our way," Dez Bryant said. "We're excited and we just got to take advantage of it. I think that's what we're doing. The attitude plays a big factor in the way we're playing football too. Around this time that's more than athletic ability."

The Cowboys are one of four NFC teams with eight wins entering Monday. Atlanta (8-5) currently has the final playoff spot and owns the tiebreaker over Dallas. The Cowboys need the Falcons to lose twice.
Bryant says he won't be keeping tabs on anyone else. Dallas' final two games are against Seattle (8-6) and Philadelphia (12-2). Those are his concerns.
"We got Seattle and we got Philly," Bryant said when asked about scoreboard watching. "We got Seattle and we got Philly. We got Seattle and we got to reset. As soon as I walk out of this locker room, I'm pretty sure after every last one of us walks out of this locker room, we got to reset. We got Seattle. We got to go get ready for them."
