Dallas Cowboys: 5 bold predictions with eight games left
1. The Dallas Cowboys will go 7-1, finishing the year with a 14-2 regular season record.
The Cowboys have never finished 14-2. Never.
The best finish for the organization is 13-3. They did it twice. Once in 2007 (led by Tony Romo, Marion Barber, Terrell Owens). And once in 1992 (led by Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin).
A 14-2 finish is in the cards. The Cowboys have four away games, two Thursday night (back-to-back) games, and dates with each team in the NFC East.
Here’s how the final eight games look:

So how do the Cowboys land at 14-2? Glad you asked.
I believe the Cowboys will squash the Pittsburgh Steelers with another 400-yard plus performance on offense. Ravens will give a push, but sorry, bye-bye.
Okay. The Redskins.
I just think the NFC East can give these young Cowboys a run for the money. That includes the away Giants and Eagles game. I could see Dallas dropping one, maybe two, of these games.
By the time The Boys reach the Eagles in Week 17, the playoff scenario could be wrapped up, but Philly might desperately need the win for a fifth or sixth seed push.
If the playoffs were to start today, the Cowboys would be the number one seed. The Giants the fifth seed. The Redskins number six. So, you see, the NFC East is hungry and of course, games against Dallas is some sort of Super Bowl type event for their respective cities anyways.
With my prediction, I’ll stick with Cowboys leaping over the Vikings, Bucs, and Lions.
Oh my. 14-2.
