Dallas Cowboys Special Teams

After a rough start to the season, Greg Zuerlein (3/5 in Week 1) has turned it around and made every field goal since the matchup against Tampa Bay. He even hit a game-winning 56-yard field goal to beat the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

I think you know a special teams unit is doing well is if they are not being talked about. They are kicking, punting, and returning well right now and even though there haven’t been many explosive returns they at least are not turning the ball over.

Dallas Cowboys Schedule Lookahead

As previously mentioned the Cowboys travel to New England on Sunday in a game that they are favored by 3.5 points. This is a game the Cowboys should win as the Patriots are one of the least explosive offenses in the NFL.

Rookie quarterback Mac Jones does a decent job of managing the game for New England but when’s he forced to throw a ton the Patriots usually lose. They average 5.1 yards per play, which ranks 27th in the NFL.

After a Week 7 bye week, Dallas travels to Minnesota Week 8 for a Sunday Night Football showdown with the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings currently sit at 2-3 and are just not playing very well. The Cowboys have had plenty of success against Kirk Cousins in his career and I would expect them to get after him in this game.

Then Weeks 9 and 10 the Cowboys have two home games against the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons. Don’t look now Cowboys fans but they should be favored in all of those games I just mentioned. Could we see the Cowboys sitting at 8-1 in mid-November? Or will they slip up and lose to one of these lesser teams? Let me know what you think about the schedule ahead.
