Mike McCarthy's Cowboys extension may depend on him beating Jason Garrett in the playoffs.

After his hiring by the Dallas Cowboys felt like an uninspired reach for someone flexible and familiar to ownership, he weathered the 6-10 season in 2020.

He came back in 2021, finishing 12-5 and putting to rest rumors about Sean Payton lurking in Jerry Jones' mind. 

When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stated that he wanted more success in 2022, McCarthy responded by taking a step forward, spinning his second 12-5 season into his first playoff win in Dallas.

Now in 2023? After taking over the offense, he's in the midst of his third straight season that will end with a playoff berth — a feat that hasn't occurred

in Dallas since Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer combined to lead the Cowboys to six straight playoff appearances from 1991 to 1996.

But here we are again. Looking back on Sunday's 31-10 road loss to the Buffalo Bills, we can't help but wonder if the Dallas

Cowboys are capable of anything more than the heights they've already reached under Mike McCarthy's command.

Despite lesser teams' offensive prowess and blowouts, we were left pondering the road woes on Sunday
