The Dallas Cowboys currently sit atop the NFC East division with a record of 2-2. With the undefeated Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos coming into AT&T Stadium this Sunday, that record could easily be 2-3 be this time next week. And the Cowboys schedule is going to get that much easier from here on out.
Here’s who the Cowboys play after the Broncos this weekend:
WEEK 6 – Washington Redskins
WEEK 7 – @ Philadelphia Eagles
WEEK 8 – @ Detroit Lions
WEEK 9 – Minnesota Vikings
WEEK 10 – @ New Orleans Saints
WEEK 12 - @ New York Giants
WEEK 13 – Oakland Raiders
WEEK 14 – @ Chicago Bears
WEEK 15 – Green Bay Packers
WEEK 16 – @ Washington Redskins
WEEK 17 – Philadelphia Eagles
If the Cowboys can win out against all of their NFC East foes, I project Dallas finishing the year at 9-7. If they lose all of their away games against those same teams, I have them going 6-10. The reality is probably somewhere in the middle, which potentially has the Cowboys finishing 8-8 for the third straight season. The real question is: Could the Dallas Cowboys make the playoffs at 8-8?
The NFC East is the worst division in the NFL right now. The Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles are both 1-2. And the New York Giants sit at 0-4. But one team will come out of this division into the post-season. But will it be the Cowboys? Let us know what you think below.
