The Dallas Cowboys could hit some significant milestones this weekend

The Dallas Cowboys playoff hopes aren’t the only things that are on the line this weekend. There are a few players that can hit some significant milestones that some people say are meaningless but are always the focal point when determining a player’s worth.

Depending on who you talk to, statistics are either the basis of your argument or a “nerd” part of the game that is irrelevant and only trust what their eyes tell them. The truth is a players worth is a combination of both.

If you don’t think that individual stats are not on a player’s mind, I would implore you to go onto social media and follow a player’s agent who is about to hit free agency. The only way to generate any momentum is for someone to show how well a person played the previous year.

The one obvious way to do so is to post a person’s statistics and watch both sides of the spectrum chime in with their opinion. It’s a simple yet genius move that only requires their client to perform as any publicity is good publicity when it comes to statistics.

Now with that out of the way, there are a few players on this Cowboys roster who are close to a statistical milestone important not only for their financial gain but also for their legacy. Fans love to hear certain stats when they are dealing with historically great players from their franchise.

I personally love to hear that running back Emmitt Smith is the league’s all-time leading rusher or that Tom Landry’s Dallas Cowboys own the record for the longest consecutive winning seasons in the entire NFL. Fans should no doubt go ahead and indulge.

There are four Cowboys with a milestone within reach this weekend and I will attempt to predict if they will be over or under when the regular season concludes.
