16. Dallas Cowboys

Keeping the trend going of teams that failed to live up to expectations last season, the Dallas Cowboys were another early favorite to make a run at the Super Bowl at the beginning of last season after finishing with the best record in the NFC the year before. To top off the pressure of turning things around in 2018, the Cowboys are a team loaded with all sorts of questions on offense since Dez Bryant and Jason Witten are no longer in the picture.

Dak Prescott may be fortunate to have one of the league’s toughest running backs in Ezekiel Elliott, but which player is going to step up at receiver is a different story since there isn’t a clear cut No. 1 at the moment. While Dallas has a few likely candidates for Prescott to choose from, the uncertainty is still a little concerning.

Once the regular season gets underway, it will be interesting to see whether players like Allen Hurns or Michael Gallup have what it takes to step up in the passing game. Otherwise, the Cowboys could end up seeing their season eventually turn into disappointment once again while watching the playoffs from home, which nobody wants to see.
