The Dallas Cowboys start with a home game against the 49ers. That’s a tough way to start a season. Also I notice that after their bye week, 4 of their last 6 games are on the road including 3 of those 6 games in prime time. A Sunday night game at the Giants, a Thursday night game at the Bears, then a Sunday night game at the Eagles.
Tough finish: Not only are 4 of 6 games on the road at the end, but 3 of the last 4 games in December (a traditionally tough month for Dallas) are away games.
The AFC teams on the schedule don’t appear that difficult to me, but the non division opponents from the NFC West, look brutal. (Seahawks, 49ers, Cardinals,)
Spoiler Alert: They will finish 8-8 after losing their “play in game” at Washington. How do I know? Because it’s the Jason Garrett coached Cowboys and that’s what they do. Go ahead and watch the season if you like, but it’s as if the NFL scripts this stuff like pro wrestling.
-Five opponents made the playoffs last season.
-The away game with Jacksonville is actually played in London.
-A Monday night game at home in October against the Redskins.
-Division champ Eagles on Thanksgiving.
