Dallas Cowboys 2014 NFL Schedule: Another Tough Finish in December

Tonight the NFL released the NFL schedule for 2014.

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.

  1. For us true-blue Cowboy fans, this season’s schedule looks absolutely brutal–with not much hope for any improvement over the disappointing last 3 seasons where they stumbled to 8-8 finishes…beginning with having to take on the 49ers out of the gate in week 1.    The ‘Boys play Drew Brees (& Rob Ryan’s defense) in AT&T stadium this time but then have to go play the SB champs out in Seattle!  Then what should be a relatively easy game against the Jaguars will be over in London!   The final stretch to the finish will be especially brutal with 4 of the last 6 games on the road–one of those a Thursday night game (Dec. 4) in Chicago!  Also in that stretch, they have to play the Eagles twice (in 3 weeks) & finally end up in Washington–against RG3 & DeSean Jackson.   In order to have any chance this season, the Cowboys must have a successful draft–and bring in some solid defensive players who will significantly upgrade their 32nd-ranked defense…
