Dallas Cowboys 2-4

Dallas came into the 2015 season with their egos in full swing and looking to pick up right where they left off in 2014. Minus the NFL’s leading rusher. By Week 3, their roster looked completely depleted of stars. The two biggest being Tony Romo and Dez Bryant. The Cowboys are an interesting plot at this point. Greg Hardy made his debut and has been an immediate contributor. Both on the field, and being a headache off of it. And moving forward, they will continue to get back players that should make them stronger.

  • Rumor has it, Bryant will be making his comeback this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. Not a guaranteed win, but the Cowboys are another player closer to being dangerous. By Week 11, they should have Romo back. The Cowboys have not managed to even sniff .500 since the loss of Romo, putting the team in a very tough spot for his return.

    Best case scenario: 5-5 The Cowboys’ strength is where most problematic teams in the league are struggling — the offensive line. This unit has been playing consistently well, but not at the high level we all expected. At least not until this past weekend against the Giants. Dallas can grind their way to being mediocre within the division.

    Worst case scenario: 3-7 Is Matt Cassell really that much of an upgrade of Brandon Weeden? The offense lacks a true rushing punch, and no aerial threat (yet). No points equals no wins.

    Likely outcome: 4-6 If you believe that all teams have it together, then Dallas has a relatively tough schedule before getting Romo back. What I said about their ground game is true. That was truly their bread and butter last year, with a bit of Romo on the side. Darren McFadden showed some life against the Giants Sunday, but that was the first time in about four years. Don’t worry though, their record might be damaged, but their hubris surely is not.
