Overall Team DVOA

23.7% 5th

Other than the Dak Prescott health scare, the Cowboys are in primo shape to be in the NFC bye race. Their only loss was to the team directly ahead of them in DVOA (Tampa), their defense has played much better this year, and even Mike McCarthy's trademark bumbling end of game management has only bit once so far this year. The schedule remains stocked with cupcakes, the running game looks good, Trevon Diggs just intercepted the rest of this sentence. This should be the first year the Cowboys are a legitimate threat since 2016. -- Rivers McCown
