The 2023 NFL season is just over three months away and it's approaching fast.

The Dallas Cowboys enter this season with something to prove after they were eliminated in the Divisional Round by the San Francisco 49ers. They want to take the next step and go compete for a Super Bowl and they've largely made the necessary adjustments to do so.

After not making the necessary moves to get better in 2022, Dallas took a different approach in the 2023 offseason.

They traded for Brandin Cooks and Stephon Gilmore, re-signed Donovan Wilson and Leighton Vander Esch, and added talent in the draft. They are all in on winning now and it shows through the moves they made the last few months.

But this season isn't going to be an easy one. They have all the pressure on them and have some must-win revenge games on their schedule.

These are games that the Cowboys need to win for their pride and to prove that this team is different from the teams that preceded them. They have to prove that they can make deep playoff runs consistently and that they can beat the tough teams.

Here is a list of four of the Cowboys' top revenge games. These are games against old foes, new rivals, and familiar faces and are games that Dallas needs to chalk as wins to put old narratives to rest.
