    Connecting The Current Dallas Cowboys To Every Team In The NFL

    The NFL is the land of parity.

    We've seen teams with the Number One Overall Pick in the Draft make the that year. We've seen Head Coaches win the Super Bowl in their first year with that franchise. It seems like every year a team goes from last place in their Division to winning it the next year. In the National Football League, literally anything is possible.

    Cowboys Headlines - Connecting The Current Dallas Cowboys To Every Team In The NFL

    It's that word – parity – that makes the NFL what it is. People get bored with the NBA and MLB because it's the same teams dominating every season. If you're not one of them, you're out of luck. Womp womp. Not in the NFL, though.

    One of the coolest things that comes out every season is the NFL Circle of Parity. It's a circle that illustrates how Team A beat Team B and Team B beat Team C, so on and so forth. A circle can be drawn to connect it all together.

    In the spirit of this circle of life (also the name of the greatest Disney song ever), I wanted to see how the 2016 Dallas Cowboys are connected to every team in the NFL. Players change teams, coaches change teams, players have family on other teams… somehow, someway everyone is connected.
