2023 Dallas Cowboys Preview and Odds

September 2, 2023

The 2022 season was quite a strange one for the Dallas Cowboys. They went from being disappointing and underachieving to showing the world why they can be counted as one of the best teams in the league.

Their offense was doing terrible without Amari Cooper and even quarterback Dak Prescott’s performance wasn’t up to par. The season would have been pure horror if it continued this way being entirely dependent on the defense. But to everyone’s surprise the offense turned the game around and carried the entire team. Tony Pollard became the star of the show, single handedly making just the comeback the Cowboys needed. He was quick to make up for the failure of the rest of the roster and the team ended the 2022 season with a 12-5 record. The team also finished second in the NFC East. Even the NFL Wild Card round was a hit for them, winning 31-14 against Tampa Bay. However, fortune wasn’t in their favor in the Divisional Round where their offense took a major blow and faced defeat. 

The Cowboys have failed to achieve their ultimate goal. This is why McCarthy decided to let go of offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and take over control himself. The team also lost Connor McGovern to the Bills and Dalton Schultz to the Texans.

When it comes to the roster, the one player that drew most attention was Prescott. As bad as he played at times this didn’t mean he would be replaced. He is still the Cowboys quarterback just with double the pressure than before. He needs to make up for all losses and McCarthy needs to make sure that happens.

In the offseason, the team made quite a few smart moves but nothing too bold. They secured cornerback Stephen Gilmore after sending a fifth round pick to the Colts. He is one of the best of his kind and will play well opposite to Trevon Diggs. They made a similar move when they brought in wide receiver Brandin Cooks with six 1000 yard seasons. The team didn’t have much cap space left to think about signing any free agents so they decided to re-sign Donovan Wilson and Leighton Vander Esch, good enough to fill in the roster. They filled a gap in the middle with tackle Mazi Smith and replaced Schultz with Luke Schoonmaker. 

For the upcoming 2023 season, the Dallas Cowboys have a roster filled with talent. They need to have a one of a kind season if they want to win their first Super Bowl in almost 30 years.
