After 11 weeks of the NFL season, the Dallas Cowboys are atop the competitive NFC East with an incredible 9-1 record. That is quite the jump from their disastrous 4-12 effort from the 2015 season.
Two rookies in key offensive positions that have changed the look and feel of this Cowboys team. It is no surprise that first-year running back Ezekiel Elliott is having success behind Dallas’ stellar offensive line, but few predicted he would lead the league in rushing in Week 12 with 1102 yards. It’s the guy under center who has sent the most shockwaves through the NFL. Dak Prescott, the Cowboys’ fourth-round pick in the 2016 draft, was meant to be a plan for the future, to learn under their star signal caller, Tony Romo. Plans quickly changed when Romo injured his back in the preseason and Prescott’s number was called prematurely.
No one anticipated the success the young QB would have in uniting this team and making plays with both his arm and legs. He has shown poise, quickness and an innate ability to make good decisions when throwing the football this season.
Dallas is currently two games ahead of the New York Giants in their division and the top seed in the NFC heading into the playoffs. They do have a tough remaining schedule though as they face Washington on Thanksgiving, then get the Vikings, Giants, Buccaneers, Lions and finally the Eagles. This Dallas team has been exciting to watch so far and should be equally as thrilling moving forward. Be sure to secure your Dallas Cowboys tickets early so that you don’t miss out on all the incredible on-field action down the stretch!
