My how time flies. For the second season in a row, Dallas has a 6-2 record after eight weeks of the season.
Back in early September, Cowboys Wire ran an exercise where we went game by game in predicting Dallas’ win-loss record.
That prediction, found here, had Dallas sitting with a 5-3 record at this point in the season.
Those predictions flipped the results from the first two games (losing against Tampa and winning over Cincinnati)
and clearly over-estimated the returning prowess of the Super Bowl champion Rams.
During these activities, it’s impossible to predict how injuries will impact a season,
so saying Dak Prescott would miss five of eight games would’ve sunken those predicions.
But after a 4-1 stretch by Cooper Rush and two straight wins after Prescott’s return gives plenty
So here’s a fresh look at the remaining nine regular season games, and the potential playoff appearance.
The Packers are sliding, but it’s so hard to imagine them losing six straight games.
