The Dallas Cowboys have a chance to win it all. That’s right. The Cowboys, not only, have an entirely legit case to win this year’s Super Bowl, but for the first time in quite a few years, they have just as good, if not better, chances to win it than anyone in the entire league.

You can throw Buffalo out there, the team that just got beat by Tennessee or even the Tampa Bay Bucs, mere seconds and a drive short of losing to Dallas in the season opener. You can even say Arizona, however, I would want to see them play Dallas before deciding who is the toast of that matchup.

The point of it all is this. Though there is still competition out there for who might be the absolute best team in the entire league, if you were to pick a group of the three or four top teams, the Cowboys are firmly in either of those collections.

The Dallas Cowboys have an elite player in Trevon Diggs

While the explosive offense is one thing, something we expected, actually saw prior to this season, and should have, based on the talent on that side of the ball for Dallas, the defensive prowess is the one that shocked.

While the thought here was that all they needed to be was “serviceable”, they are pretty good and even though they have warts, their ability to take the ball away from opposing offenses is what really separates them.

Randy Gregory is having himself a year. He will get some new money and rightfully so.

Though self-inflicted on a lot of the circumstances, to see him bounce back from all he has gone through and still be able to be this dude is quite special to behold. The rest of the guys are holding their own on that unit too, splashing here and there.

However, the guy (besides Gregory) who makes the biggest waves on a week to week basis, is none other than the Takeaway Artist Formerly Known As Trevon “Picks” Diggs. He’s the dude that’s really taken this defense over the top.

That’s not all he has done either. Besides drawing comparisons and evoking the name of the most famous Cowboys defender… ever… he starting to climb into the most elite of company.

Yep, you are reading that right. Among the most elite guys back there that the league has ever seen, through their first 18 games, Diggs leads the bunch and with room to spare. While he has a long way to go before he is exactly at the level of most of the guys on that list, he is well on his way.

Hot. Why the Dallas Cowboys cannot separate these two men. light

The Kendrick Bourne 75-yarder from Sunday’s game, for example, is something that can’t happen a ton, again, in example. If he can keep up this trajectory though, the sky is, quite literally, the limit. That goes for him and the Cowboys, for both this year and beyond!
