Weather a Non Factor in Cowboys 2011 Schedule

Native Texans will speak of the horrors of Texas summers.  Northerners visiting Texas during the summer have a sense of what Hell would be like.  Sweltering heat in September and extremity numbing cold in December can have an effect on a team’s regular season record.  For the Dallas Cowboys, a humid 105+ field temperature can be an advantage early in the season.  However, the Cowboys first regular season game will be in week 3 when they host the Washington Redskins.  While nothing is guaranteed, nearly 4 weeks from August should marginalize the unbearable heat.  That being said, the Cowboys management would likely close the roof eliminating any advantage.

Despite lacking a weather advantage in the early portion of the season, the Cowboys avoid artic-like conditions in November and December until they play the New York Giants in the season finale.  Outside of home games, the Cowboys visit Washington in November,  Arizona and Tampa in December.

All things considered, the Cowboys will not play in inclement weather until week 17 (save for the occasional rainy afternoon).  Outside of the Cowboys managing to claim the number one overall spot in the NFC, it is likely they would travel to a cold weather location in the playoffs.  Hopefully a schedule lacking in character fortifying weather will not affect the Cowboys playoff run.
