Share |

The Dallas Cowboys in 2016 were on the big surprises of the entire season. They finished with the best record in the NFC conference at 13-3 as they saw the rise of rookies Dak Prescott at quarterback and their first round pick Ezekiel Elliot at running back. They were both blessed operating behind the best offensive line in football.

It was one and done in the playoffs as the Cowboys were eliminated in the NFC Divisional Round at home to Green Bay 34-31. It was a major disappointment for a team that had hopes for a Super Bowl. It was the Cowboys defense that let the team down as they couldn’t make a stop in the first half as quarterback Aaron Rodgers built an early 21-3 lead in the second quarter. Dallas to their credit tied the game late at 31-31 but the Cowboys defense allowed Aaron Rodgers to lead the Packers into field goal range as Green Bay wins on a 51 yard field goal as time expired.

Dak Prescott lost his first start in Week 1 and then went on to win his next 11 games in a row. The Cowboys were 0-2 against the New York Giants last year scoring a total of 26 points in both games combined. Prescott completed 67.8% of his passes for 3667 yards with 23 touchdowns and four picks. Running back Ezekiel Elliot had 16 touchdowns with 1994 yards and was used heavily running 322 times. He did not play in Week 17 so Elliot averaged 20 carries per game. Aaron Rodgers exposed the Cowboys weakness defensively. They lacked a pass rush and it was critical in the playoff loss at home to the Packers. Six of the Cowboys seven draft picks were on the defensive side of the ball. For pass rushing help the Cowboys drafted Taco Charlton out of Michigan who is strong and a powerful but lacks that first step speed to become elite.
