1. Dallas Cowboys
Finally winning a playoff game last season over the Seattle Seahawks took a ton of pressure off the Dallas Cowboys when looking at all of the previous criticism the team has taken over the years.
And while some football fans will make the case that Dallas still has plenty to prove since their first two contests were agains the New York Giants and Washington Redskins, it’s hard to ignore the talent this team is fortunate enough to work with.
All signs point to Dak Prescott heading towards a career year with the Cowboys in 2019, and it only makes sense since the Dallas quarterback has been fighting for a hefty pay raise with a new contract from the organization.
Take this into consideration with the fact that Dallas recently rewarded Ezekiel Elliott with a new deal, and the team eventually hopes to do the same with Amari Cooper, this team could be built strongly to compete for years to come.
During Week 15 when the Rams have to take on the defending NFC East champions, it will be interesting to see what the playoff standings look like in the conference since both teams could be battling for one of the spots.
Better yet, if all goes according to plan for both teams, this December meeting between Los Angeles and Dallas could end up being a potential early playoff preview for January.
