NFL Power Rankings: The ‘give credit where it’s due’ tier

As much as we hate to admit it, the Dallas Cowboys are a very good football team. Mike McCarthy and Kellen Moore have found a better balance for their offense, throwing the ball 237 times and running 225 times in 2022.

Dak Prescott has also returned to the Cowboys’ offense, and he has played well, throwing for over 450 yards and three touchdowns versus one interception since returning from the hand injury he suffered in Week 1.

Micah Parsons has also been an animal for the Cowboys’ defense with eight sacks and two forced fumbles. Unfortunately for Dallas, despite their great season, they still have been outshined by the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants’ successes.

. 6-1. Previous: 9th. Minnesota Vikings. 4. team. 60

With every passing week, the Philadelphia Eagles dominating win over the Minnesota Vikings seems to be more impressive than it was when we were watching it happen.

Minnesota is currently riding a five-game winning streak, and if you look past their game in Philadelphia, they are averaging 27.7 points per contest. We’re about to learn a lot about them very quickly though. The second half of their schedule is tough while the Eagles face some favorable matchups.
