The Athletic -- Rank: 28
CeeDee Lamb fell to the Cowboys at 17, and he's played well. Lamb's 742 yards rank third among rookie wide receivers. Lamb had two catches for 46 yards in the Cowboys' win over the Bengals in Week 14.
CBS Sports -- Rank: 28
They still have some life after beating the Bengals on the road Sunday. At least they showed some fight, which they didn't do the week before.
USA Today -- Rank: 28
They showed a heartbeat against a Cincy squad in worse straits than Dallas, but America's Team is cooked with one more Washington win.
ESPN -- Rank: 28
You don't need analytics to tell you that this season has been bad for the Cowboys. Since losing Dak Prescott, they have averaged 16.9 points per game. The defense has allowed 34 or more points seven times. The special teams have benefited from some big returns lately, but questionable decision-making in key spots has hurt. Trying to determine what has gone right for the Cowboys is difficult. Beyond individual development, there isn't anything to point to. Add it all up, and the Cowboys are looking at a top-five draft pick next spring. -- Todd Archer.

Mike McCarthy had to feel a sense of relief after Sunday's 30-7 win over the Bengals. Five days earlier, the Cowboys looked like a team that had quit on its coach in a blowout loss to the Ravens. It was the type of grim affair, in front of a national audience, that can serve as a tipping point for frustrated owners. But Dallas bounced back, and on Monday, Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones was definitive in his stance on McCarthy, saying there "will be absolutely no change" at head coach. Sunday also served as a nice moment for Andy Dalton, who threw two touchdown passes in an easy win over his former team. Dalton is no game-changer, but he's brought a floor and some stability to the Cowboys on offense.
