A team can go undefeated in pre-season, but they don’t have no awards for that – trophies. Just for giggles though, let’s look at Super Bowl champions and their pre-season records.

Another fun fact – In 2013, Washington went 4 – 0 in pre-season and ended with a 3 – 13 record. In the last 10 years, teams have won the Super Bowl after winning just one pre-season game. Combine that with the Washington tidbit I added for free and you get more proof that pre-season success isn’t a guarantee of regular or post-season success. Don’t take these results too seriously, just enjoy the awesomeness that is – Cowboys Football.

What time is it? It’s predictions time! Who are the jabronis playing against the Cowboys in their first pre-season game? Trick question – IT DOESN’T MATTER who the Cowboys play! (Come on! WWF? The Rock) We are going to showcase the three first round draft picks on our offensive line featuring Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zach Martin. Ryan Williams & Lance Dunbar will get 7 carries each and they will both finish with more than 100 rushing yards.
