When describing the Dallas Cowboys, there is only one thought that comes to mind and most NFL fans would instantly think of the phrase “America’s Team”. The phrase which gave the nickname to the Cowboys was from an NFL film production, about the Dallas Cowboys. “America’s Team” began in 1960 under the influential coach of Tom Landry who led them to a very successful first few years in the NFL’s existence.
The Cowboys really began their NFL dominance from 1966 onwards, as they had 20 straight winning seasons, which included the franchise making 18 playoffs, claiming 13 division titles, appearing in five Super Bowls and winning two.
During that time they claimed the 1966 and 1967 division titles, however, they fell each time in the Championship game which earned them a reputation of being a good team without winning the big games that mattered. That reputation came after they made the Super Bowl V, but fell to the Baltimore Colts in the last few seconds losing the game 16-13.
That seemed to spur “America’s Team” as by the next season they were fired up and ready to make amends of their time on the big stage, and by Super Bowl VI they claimed their maiden Vince Lombardi trophy, defeating the Miami Dolphins in convincing fashion winning 24-3.
The 70s could be known as the golden period of the Cowboys as they introduced future Hall of Fame players, quarterback Roger Staubach, tackle Rayfield Wright, defensive tackle Bobby Lilly and Randy White, defensive back Mel Renfro and running back Tony Dorsett.
The Cowboys would make the NFL showpiece event three more times before the 70s wrapped up appearing in Super Bowl X, Super Bowl XII and Super Bowl XIII. Super Bowl XII however, is the one Cowboys fans would take more seriously as they defeated the Denver Broncos 27-10 to claim their second Vince Lombardi trophy.
Although the Cowboys made the playoffs at the beginning of the 80s, there wasn’t much to celebrate about as they lost the Conference Championships from 1980-1982 and lost a wildcard playoff in 1983. The Cowboys would endure their worst season in the NFL in 1989 as they won only one game ending with a 1-15 record.
The 90s provided a new golden era for the Cowboys as future Hall of Famers Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Micheal Irvin lead the team to three Super Bowl triumphs (XXVII, XXVIII and XXX).
The Super Bowl XXVII triumph over the Buffalo Bills ended a 15 year drought for the Cowboys to reach the ultimate goal and would spark the team to go back-to-back when they won Super Bowl XXVIII over the Miami Dolphins the following year.
The Cowboys didn’t have to wait long to get their hands on their fifth and final Vince Lombardi trophy as two years later they were back in the NFL’s ultimate showpiece event, defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XXX.
The Cowboys have been a regular factor in the postseason action from 2000 to 2019 having been involved in seven playoff appearances, however, they have either lost the wildcard playoffs or the divisional round.
The Cowboys most recent appearance in the playoffs was in the 2018 season where they won the wildcard playoffs defeating Seattle Seahawks but lost the divisional round to the Los Angeles Rams.
The 2020 offseason saw the drama of Dak Prescott with the team wanting a shorter term deal while the QB wanted a multi-year big money contract. The Cowboys ended up franchise tagging Prescott, hoping that his 2020 play would be able to help the sides come to an agreement in 2021 but he lasted just 4.5 games before dislocating and breaking his ankle in Week 5.
The Cowboys, behind Andy Dalton and two other back up quarterbacks at times, went on to miss out on a postseason berth by just one game despite finishing with a 6-10 record, highlighting the lack of quality in the NFC East.
There is now speculation and uncertainty about Prescott and the Cowboys moving forward once again, with the two sides hopeful but distant on a contract early in the 2021 offseason.
2021 was a great year for the Dallas Cowboys until it wasn’t. It was the same story and a different year for Dallas, a great regular season, and another playoff disappointment as Dallas was upset by the San Fransisco 49ers.
If you are a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Dallas Cowboys have the star power to make it all the way to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl in 2023?
Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Dallas Cowboys:
Mike McCarthy returns for another season as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. This will be his third season at the helm and his team has improved both years. They went from a losing record all the way to an NFC title in just a year’s time.
However, the one thing Dallas is always chasing is playoff wins and they got bounced early in last season‘s playoffs. That is the one area that McCarthy will need to improve on this season otherwise he may find his job in Dallas on the hot seat despite potentially having two straight winning seasons and two straight division titles.
Quarterback Dak Prescott is the key to this team‘s offense and it shows when he’s on the field just how good the Dallas Cowboys production is. While the two-headed monster of Zeke Elliott and Tony Pollard return in the backfield for the Cowboys.
As always the Dallas Cowboys strength is their offensive line and they will once again return in full force after being graded as the best line in football last season. CeeDee Lamb’s attention and production is expected to go up after the departure of Amari Cooper. Michael Gallup and Jalen Tolbert will be the number two and three wide receiver for Prescott this season.
This is a defense led by Demarcus Lawrence, Anthony Barr, Leighton Vander Esch, and last year’s NFL rookie of the year Micah Parsons. They also have a solid combo of Trevon Diggs and Malik Hooker in the defensive backfield. The one thing they will have to improve upon is the number of yards they give up per play.
If they can fix that, this Cowboy‘s defense has the chance to be a top five unit in the National Football League this upcoming season. Especially Trevon Diggs who gave up the most coverage yards in the league last season but still ended up being one of the best corners despite that statistic.
The Dallas Cowboys total wins line is currently sitting at ten victories. The over for this is currently sitting at (-110) while the under is currently sitting at (-110) as well. Oddsmakers are expecting them to finish with around 9 to 11 victories this season.
They are expected to be a solid and competitive team during the 2022-23 National Football League season. Last year they ended up finishing with a record of 12-5 and winning the NFC East as well as making the National Football League playoffs.
At the moment their odds to win the NFC East division are (+135). This shows that Vegas expects them to be towards the very top of their division. While their odds to win their Conference Championship are currently sitting at (+850) heading into the 2022-23 National Football League season.
What is most important is their current Super Bowl odds, and those are currently at (+1800) heading into the year. They are currently favored in 11 of their seventeen games this season and the majority of those games come at home in Dallas. They are favored by more than one possession zero times this season and two possession underdogs zero times as well this season.
Dallas has all the potential in the world to win another NFC East division title and make some noise in the playoffs as long as Dak Prescott can remain healthy this season. They still have a very capable running back in Ezekiel Elliott out of the backfield, as well as his back up Tony Pollard who could easily both rush for 100 yards a game if they get enough touches.
As always their solid offensive line returns and that is the key that makes this team go. If Prescott can remain healthy and they can fill the absence of Amari Cooper, they will be a very good offensive team this season. While they will need Micah Parsons to replicate his numbers from last season on the defensive end of the ball as well.
