#1 – Cowboys vs. Rams – Week 15
The Los Angeles Rams ended the Cowboys playoff hopes during the divisional round. And they did so running over the highly-touted Dallas defense for 273 rushing yards and three touchdowns. The Cowboys will face the Rams during a preseason vacation in Hawaii as well, but this one actually counts. And Dallas needs redemption.
#2 – Cowboys vs. Patriots – Week 12
This one is easy to get excited for. There is no better measuring stick for your team than facing the defending Super Bowl champions. And that goes double when it’s against the Patriots, their quarterback Tom Brady, and coaching legend Bill Belichick. After this game, Dallas has just four days to prepare to face the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving.
#3 – Cowboys @ Saints – Week 4
The Cowboys made themselves legitimate contenders in the eyes of naysayers last season when they defeated the red hot Saints 13-10 in a Week 13 matchup at AT&T Stadium. That defeat ended a10-game winning streak for New Orleans. No doubt they will be looking for a little revenge at home.
#4 – Cowboys @ Eagles – Week 16
Of all the NFC East battles, the most contentious has been against the Eagles in Philly. And the fact Philadelphia is coming off a down season after winning their first Super Bowl only makes them more dangerous. This is a matchup every Cowboys’ fan circles on their calendars. And being so late on the schedule, this could be a battle for the NFC East title.
#5 – Cowboys vs. Bills – Week 13
This may sound trivial, but I believe the return of Cole Beasley to Dallas for the first time since becoming a Bill in free agency this offseason will be intriguing. Beasley clearly felt unappreciated bolting for greener, snow-covered pastures in Buffalo. It should be interesting to see if he’s able to post big numbers against his old squad on Thanksgiving.
