The Dallas Cowboys are headed to the playoffs. Despite their horrid Week 18 loss to the Washington Commanders, they are set to head to Tampa Bay to play Tom Brady and the Buccaneers in the Wild Card round.
Now that the regular season has concluded, it’s time to go over what we learned about this team through 18 weeks. There were a lot of ups and a lot of downs to get to, so lets get started.
8 things we learned about the Cowboys in the 2022-23 regular season
1. We underestimated what this team was capable of
Prior to this season, several media outlets and internet personalities expected the Cowboys to be average. I would always see predictions of eight or nine wins for this team, and many Dallas fans expected it as well.
Don’t get me wrong, the players this team lost warranted some of this talk. Amari Cooper being shipped to Cleveland was just one part of the reason, while losing Randy Gregory and trading La’el Collins were big factors as well.
However, it seems people focused too much on what was lost rather than what was left. This team still had stars everywhere, and other serviceable players as well. Now, this team has at least 12 wins for the second straight season and are in the playoffs.
