12. Dallas Cowboys (7-5, Previous: 13)
The MVP of the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving Day win over the Raiders was a virus. With Tony Romo suffering from flu-like symptoms, the emphasis shifted to the running game. DeMarco Murray (three touchdowns) and Lance Dunbar (a career-high 82 yards) plowed down the field and led Dallas to a comeback victory and into first place in the NFC East. Jerry Jones just instituted a no-soap rule in the Cowboys’ locker room leading up to next week’s game in Chicago. (Getty Photo)
