Dallas Cowboys Details
The Cowboys came incredibly close to making it to the NFC Championship game in 2016, losing 34-31 to the Packers on a last-second field. Dak Prescott led a furious fourth-quarter comeback for Dallas in that game, but it was not enough to get them to the next round. Now Prescott will use that experience to try and lead his team all the way to the Promised Land, and he definitely has the weapon around him to do it. Running behind the league’s best offensive line, Ezekiel Elliott should be able to improve upon last year’s 1,631-yard and 15-touchdown season. He was just a rookie then, and one would think that the extra experience will do him good. As for pass-catchers, Dez Bryant, Cole Beasley and Jason Witten will make things happen for Prescott. Bryant is still one the most difficult covers in football, and he should be in for a big year now that he is healthy. On the other side of the ball, Sean Lee anchors a unit that was very tough to score on in 2016. Lee was a First Team All-Pro last season, and he is surrounded by studs like Byron Jones, Orlando Scandrick, Tyrone Crawford and David Irving. If this team can stay healthy then the sky is the limit.
The Cowboys play their games in AT&T Stadium, which is found in Arlington, Texas and has a retractable roof that allows the Cowboys to avoid playing games in poor weather. This stadium is also referred to as “Jerry World” because of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Jones is a gigantic personality, so it’s only fitting that this stadium is the fifth largest in the NFL and also has a video screen that runs from one 20-yard line to the other. This place has gotten pretty loud in recent years, but it was absolutely rocking as “America’s Team” went 7-1 at home last season.
