The Dallas Cowboys finished off a huge drive in the second half with a touchdown to give them a 17-10 lead against the Oakland Raiders, but they might have lost left tackle Tyron Smith in the process.
Smith hurt his knee during that series, and he is questionable to return to the game, per Cowboys, writer Rob Phillips.
If they can hold on their playoff chances look good with running back Ezekiel Elliott returning to the field for their Christmas Eve matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. Also, they got a lot of help in the playoffs race on Sunday with the Green Bay Packers and Seahawks losing
A lot still has to happen for the Cowboys to get that last wild-card spot, but there is a real chance they could run the table if they can hold on against the Raiders. However, they have shown without Smith that their offense cannot function properly.
In the two games that he missed, the offense looked the worst that it has looked since 2015 and quarterback Dak Prescott hasn’t looked like a different quarterback even after Smith’s return.
If he can’t go, the Cowboys could have some serious problems doing their part to make the playoffs, win three games in a row.
