The Dallas Cowboys enter their bye week with a 4-2 record. While their performance has fluctuated on a week-to-week basis, they're just one game behind the Eagles in the NFC East after Philly shockingly lost to the Jets in Week 6.

You'll take that all day, but despite the 4-2 record fans still have reservations about Dallas' long-term outlook.

The offensive play-calling remains a major concern, and that falls on head coach Mike McCarthy. Speaking of McCarthy, he didn't do himself any favors with his bizarre clock and game management in the Week 6 win against the LA Chargers.

But enough about McCarthy. After all, the bye week presents a great opportunity to analyze the landscape of the NFL and check in on former Cowboys.

With that, let's highlight some former Cowboys who are performing well for their new teams, and one who hasn't been as fortunate.

4. Former Cowboy who's starring: Conor McGovern

McGovern didn't do himself any favors on his way out of Dallas. After inking a three-year, $22.35 million contract with the Bills, McGovern admitted he made up his mind about leaving the Cowboys before the 2022 season started.

Perhaps the writing was on the wall, but McGovern, a Pennsylvania native, revealed he had Buffalo circled as a dream desitination in free agency.

Personal feelings aside, McGovern's been rock-solid for Buffalo. He's playing over 95% of the offensive snaps and is thriving in pass protection.

According to Pro Football Focus, McGovern has allowed eight pressures and one sack on 244 pass-block snaps. His 75.8 pass-block grade is sixth among guards who've played at least 100 snaps in pass pro. His run blocking needs improvement, but the fact he's helped keep Josh Allen upright means he's doing what he was paid to.
