4. New England Patriots

Bill Belichick, the Cowboys' nemesis, is finally starting to have some losing seasons and it's Dallas' perfect chance to pounce. The Patriots have had losing seasons in two of the last three seasons and don't seem to be the same team that they were with Tom Brady at the helm.

Belichick is 5-1 against the Cowboys as a coach for New England with his only loss coming in the overtime thriller on Oct. 17, 2021 in Foxborough. This rivalry was typically associated with the Cowboys and Brady, but the rivalry between the Patriots and the Cowboys is just as strong.

This is a revenge game as the Cowboys get their chance to beat the Patriots for the second-straight time and flip a new page in this mini-rivalry. They won the last matchup in 2021 and must keep their pedal to the metal on this mediocre Patriots team.

The Cowboys get the Patriots early in the year on Oct. 1. This is just the third time the Cowboys have played the Patriots at home in the last 25 years and will look to defeat Belichick on Dallas' territory for the first time ever.
