16. Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys are currently on their bye week, so it’s hard to really judge if they have gotten better or worse since we last saw them drop a winnable primetime game to the Washington Redskins in Landover, Maryland.

However, apparently, no one told this to de facto GM Jerry Jones, as he did his best to keep his team in the headlines without having to so much as turn on the lights in AT&T Stadium.

While much has been written about whether or not the Cowboys actually got better or worse in the long haul by trading their 2019 first round pick to the Raiders for Amari Cooper it’s certainly a big swing that has the potential to shake up the division for both this and next season, maybe longer depending on how Jon Gruden decides to use said pick next spring.

Fortunately for fans in Philly, we won’t have to wait too long to see how the experiment turns out, as the Eagles will be facing off against the Cowboys when they return from their post-London bye in Week 11.

Who knows, maybe the Eagles will also have a brand new trade piece to debut in the game as well?
