IRVING, Texas (AP) -- The season that once looked so promising for the Dallas Cowboys is halfway done.

After losses in four of their last five games, the Cowboys have plenty work to do just to have another .500 season. As for any chance of making the playoffs, that already seems like a big stretch since only one NFC team has won fewer games than Dallas (3-5) at this point.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones says the team has "absolutely" underachieved this season. But he says the Cowboys can do a lot for their season with a win at Philadelphia (3-5).

Sunday's game is the start of the second half for Dallas, which opened the season with a win at the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
