From paybacks to paydays, Cowboys bye-week assessment provides positives a plenty
The bye week is here for the Dallas Cowboys and it could not have come at a better time. Their MVP candidate, quarterback Dak Prescott, suffered a calf strain tin completing a game-winning pass for their fifth victory in a row. It isn’t considered serious but it does need rest and the team can use the week off to get a few other players healthy as well.
Sitting at 5-1, and the way that record has been accomplished, is about as good as anybody could’ve asked for with the Cowboys. The team has played great complimentary football. They sport an elite offense, just as most expected, but also have created an opportunistic defense that leads the NFL in defensive scores with three, leading the club to sit third in turnover differential at +7.
Aside from the record and the bandwagon being fired up, here’s where those things have gotten the Cowboys as they take a few days off.
