The Dallas Cowboys led the NFC last season, finishing with a 13-3 record. How will they fair in 2017 under the leadership of Dak Prescott?
It seems as though everywhere you look on the internet you’ll find an article or video explaining why the Dallas Cowboys won’t find success in 2017. I’ve read all the so-called “reasons”, and I find it to be a bunch of baloney.
Let’s start with Heath Evans from NFL Network. Heath thinks the Dallas Cowboys are going to go 8-8. Then we’ve got ESPN’s pundits, Louis Riddick and Jerome Bettis, who seemed very happy to predict a 9-7 season.
And don’t even get me started on Stephen A. Smith. For a man who makes his living hating on the Cowboys Wholesale Adrian Clayborn Jersey
, he upped his ante this team. Even going as far as to suggest that Dallas would deflate footballs to prevent Ezekiel Elliott from fumbling.

I mean, come on. It’s the Dallas Cowboys — not Tom Brady.
Cheap shots at Brady aside, the Cowboys are getting some very unfair treatment from most of the “experts” on TV. Coming off a 13-3 season, the best record in the NFC, you’d think the football world would have some confidence in the them.
The Dallas Cowboys have so much going for them heading into 2017. Dak Prescott will be entering his second year in the NFL, after being named AP Offensive Rookie of the Year last season. In fact, the offensive depth shouldn’t change at all with the exception of left guard.
So Authentic Satchel Paige Jersey
, let’s take a moment, breathe, and predict the Dallas Cowboys 2017 record, taking into account that they were one of the best teams in football last season.

Week 1: vs. New York Giants
The Dallas Cowboys welcome their arch-nemesis from the northeast to open the season. The New York Giants come to town for a Sunday night showdown that should come down to the wire. Let’s just face the facts here: the Cowboys and Giants always play each other close.

In fact Packers Marquez Valdes-Scantling Jersey
, you’d have to go all the way back to 2014 to find a game between these clubs that was decided by more than a touchdown.
The strengths of these two teams remain largely unchanged. The Dallas Cowboys bring their dominant run game and superior offense. The Giants flex their mighty defense and imposing defensive line.
However, the G-Men boast a major addition on offense. After signing ex-Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall, the Giants look to have an upgraded aerial attack. Couple that with a Cowboys secondary that saw three starters flee town and you have a recipe for trouble.
But the New York football Giants have an Achilles’ heel of their own. They lost one of their best run-stuffing defensive tackles, Johnathan Hankins, to the Indianapolis Colts in free agency. That should give Ezekiel Elliott and the Cowboys rushing attack some breathing room come September.
I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about this game, and it likely could go either way. But, the third time is the charm Falcons Deadrin Senat Jersey
, and Dak Prescott and the Cowboys will be looking to avenge their early exit from the 2017 playoffs.
Prediction: Cowboys: 24, Giants: 21 (W)
