2. Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys' level of talent at QB is similar to that of the Giants, but if Daniel Jones progresses this season, the Cowboys could lose their grip on being the NFC East's second-best team. The G-Men be in some trouble.
New York has more to prove. That's why the Cowboys rank second here. Dak Prescott turns 30 years young on July 29th. He has two playoff wins on his resume as he enters his eighth NFL season, and believe it or not, the future of his career beyond 2023 is uncertain.
If he and the Cowboys can't agree on the terms of an extension, Prescott becomes a free agent in 2025. Some believe that hinges on him changing the recent trajectory we have seen his career take. He has shown that he can win games during the regular season. He has developed into a solid dual-threat quarterback as his career has progressed.
One thing the Cowboys have working in their favor is they own a better roster than the Giants have. Their backup quarterback is Cooper Rush. He stepped in for an injured Prescott last season and only lost once, a game versus the Eagles, during five games as a starter. Some even debated whether or not Rush should have remained the starter when Dak returned from injury.
Cowboys fans don't have to be worried if their starter goes down for a game or two. Rush has shown that he can step in when needed. The Cowboys also have Will Grier on the roster. He has never seen the field for Dallas but was once considered a possible franchise quarterback for the Carolina Panthers when they drafted him.
