On Sunday, I broke down the first half of the Cowboys schedule for the upcoming 2014 season.  The first half of the schedule is tricky because while the Cowboys do have a good amount of home games, those games come against some high quality opponents.  San Francisco and New Orleans join divisional foes New York and Washington to start out the year at Cowboys Stadium.  Even the previously 2-14 Houston Texans will pose some kind of threat as they cannot be that bad again.  Here is a quick synopsis of how I see the first eight games going:

vs. San Francisco – LOSS
at Tennessee – WIN
at St. Louis – WIN
vs. New Orleans – LOSS
vs. Houston – WIN
at Seattle – LOSS
vs. N.Y. Giants – WIN
vs. Washington – WIN

After eight games, being 5-3 would not be the worst thing ever, especially since there are three games against teams that won eleven or more games last year.  Sadly, having five wins after eight games would be better than any previous 8-8 season as the last three seasons have seen Dallas with four wins twice and three wins once during this epic stretch of mediocrity.  Is 2014 the year Dallas finds a way through the even Steven funk?  Let’s see what the rest of the schedule looks like.
