Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy claims he got into analytics during his year off from coaching but he might still need a little help in that department.
According to a report from NFL Network’s Kim Jones, McCarthy was telling his team that the “research” shows that winning 4 out of 6 division games gives them a good chance at winning the division.

Mike McCarthy was saying there’s research that shows that once a team gets to four division wins it’s likelier to win the division
Fans thought it was hilarious that McCarthy needed expert research to come to the conclusion that having a winning record against divisional opponents gives his team a better chance at winning the division.
This is hilarious every NFL team plays 6 divisional games, of course winning 4 of them gives you a big advantage to win the division https://t.co/mle28XznpO

Man who would have thought if you win 2/3 of your division games youre more likely to win said division. https://t.co/FQoP3PmzUW

Ah yes research. If you win more games you are likely to win the division. Truly groundbreaking https://t.co/LHfsSCof6z

Yes, if you have a 66.7% winning percentage against your division, you have a better chance of making the playoffs.
Congratulations Mike McCarthy, you made it through 1st grade, which means you are definitely qualified to be the HC of the Cowboys! https://t.co/VrScI3mNvM

you have to score more points than the other team to win, and you have to win a lot of games to go to the playoffs. it's science. https://t.co/uGtmPeVzr2
