After the kind of year that the Dallas Cowboys had in 2016, many fans have pretty high expectations going into the 2017 NFL campaign. We are just a month away from the start of the preseason, and the teams are gearing up for their runs at the biggest prize in all of the football – that Lombardi Trophy. We are here to tell you why the Dallas Cowboys just might be polishing that trophy when this season is done.
1) Best Running Game In The NFL – When we talk about the offense of the Dallas Cowboys, we mostly think about that massive O-line that blocks for Ezekiel Elliot and protects the quarterback Dak Prescott. They are enabling these two young players to perform and limit the mistakes that they might make. It opens up everything for this team, and it keeps the defense that is far from the best in the league on the bench.
2) Who Improved In NFC So Dramatically? – Dallas Cowboys were the number one seed in the NFC last year. This round, it really doesn’t seem that somebody made a big step forward. Yeah, the Giants are better, but the rest of the pack has the same strengths and weaknesses that they had last year. Cowboys will be very much in the mix at the top of the NFC yet again. With a little bit of luck and a couple of more plays made by now more experienced Dallas’ stars, the Boys can go a long way.
3) Chip On Their Shoulder – Even though they were the best regular season team in the NFC, the Packers took them out on their own home turf. Dallas played well enough to win the game after they made a monster comeback, but they have fallen short. Dallas was probably the better team, but just dig themselves too big of a hole early on in the match. They know they had a real shot at going all the way last year and they are not going to forget it. We should expect a motivated Cowboys in 2017.
