The NFL will release the Dallas Cowboys schedule for the 2014 regular season on Wednesday night. Fortunately, we already know who their opponents will be for the most part. We just don’t know yet when those games will be played. Still, there are five anticipated match-ups I’ve already targeted as the toughest for Dallas this upcoming season.

And those hard matchups were relatively easy to find as Dallas will go up against the best division in football, the NFC West, in 2014. That division includes the St. Louis Rams (7-9), the Arizona Cardinals (10-6), the San Francisco 49ers (12-4) and the World Champion Seattle Seahawks (13-3).

Let’s get started…

    You forgot the games with last year’s division champion, Philadelphia. Also, a much revitalized pair of games with a significantly improved Giants team. Four more to add to your Top Five Scariest Games list.

    There’s a very good team in Arizona to play as well. The others escape me for now.

    This upcoming season is anything but a walk in the park for this Dallas team. Given its depleted defense and the still-to-be-tested issues with Romo, this could be a very unfortunate season for The Cowboys.

    • LandryHat

      Since we went 5-1 against the NFC East sporting the worst defense in the league, I ruled them all out. Arizona was on the list at 5, but I removed them. We played them in the preseason in 2013 and lost 12-7 despite committing five first-half turnovers. To me, the Colts are a bigger threat and they had a better overall record. I agree about 2014 not being a cakewalk. It very well could be a worse season than 2013.

      • SmartThinking

        This team’s nemesis, Chicago, should be on the list as well. They seem to beat the tar out of Dallas every year.

        Frankly, with this schedule, I think an 8-8 finish may qualify as a successful season for this Dallas team. If Washington gets lucky, and Tennessee, too, I can see a 5-11 or 6-10 without much of a stretch. And that’s just the truth of it.

        Don’t expect New York to lay down again, twice. Philadelphia is the division champion and the team to beat. They won’t go down without a fight.

        If Dallas starts a losing streak and becomes a demoralized team, ala New York last season, it could get real ugly real quick.

  • Old Frog

    Little hard to predict the last game will be one of the toughest. Personally, I don’t think it will matter. The Cowboys will either have imploded and be out of it by then or they will have gotten lucky and cinched a playoff spot. Either way it won’t be an important game.

  • Chad

    Only twice in the last decade have we been a sub-.500 team, but it looks like this may be the year that we get lucky to go 6-10. The first 2 days of the draft could be the tipping point. We’re gonna need at least 3 of these kids picked up next month to come in and give us the same level of play that Travis and Terrence did last year.

  • PaulTX

    The month of December is usually tough for Romo. Especially if he thinks we might reach the playoffs.

  • Greg Hill

    Click your heels 3 times Dorothy and repeat after me. “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home.” With JJ as the wizard of oz, the only way the cowboys go to the playoffs is if they buy a ticket.
