The Dallas Cowboys turned their season around in a big way after acquiring Amari Cooper at the trade deadline, so while they came up short in the divisional round against the Los Angeles Rams, the ‘Boys are a few pieces away from being a truly dangerous team in the NFC.
With a 10-6 record, the Dallas Cowboys finished the 2018 regular season as the top team in the NFC East, squeaking ahead of the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Though Dallas picked up a narrow Wild Card round win over the Seattle Seahawks to begin the playoffs, they were unable to progress any further, running into the brick wall that is the Los Angeles Rams backfield of Todd Gurley and C.J. Anderson.
Dallas has a bright future with a strong defense, Ezekiel Elliot at running back, elite wideout Amari Cooper, and a few other strong pieces. Though limited as a passer in 2018, Dak Prescott was able to pull out some important plays for the Cowboys this season and looks like the team’s franchise quarterback.
The Cowboys have talent on both sides of the ball, but they need to make some more tweaks in order to become a future contender in the NFC. With teams like the Seahawks, Rams, Eagles, Chicago Bears, and New Orleans Saints in the conference, every move will matter this offseason for Stephen Jones and Co.
