The Dallas Cowboys' performance down the stretch has done nothing to quiet the doubts surrounding this team ahead of the playoffs. Dallas went just 2-2 over its last four, and now head coach Mike McCarthy will look to rally his team after a 26-6 thrashing at the hands of the Washington Commanders last time out.

This could be a big postseason for McCarthy as he hopes to avoid a second Wild Card Round loss. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones discussed how the head coach's job security could be impacted if he suffers another early playoff exit.

Jones told 105.3 The Fan that a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers wouldn't impact his status as HC. The owner said he has "a lot more" to judge McCarthy based off of than just one playoff game, so it won't alter any plans.

The vote of confidence surely has been to nice for McCarthy to hear. His job security frequently comes up in discussions around the team as some wonder if he's the right man to lead a Super Bowl winner in Dallas.

A long playoff run would certainly go a long way toward shutting those doubters up. The Cowboys have the personnel to do it with their top-scoring offense and an equally strong defense that boasts plenty of playmakers.

Dallas' postseason journey will begin on the road at Tampa Bay. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds peg the Cowboys as 2.5-point favorites ahead of that clash.
