Cowboys Schedule: 2016 Home/Away Opponents Revealed

The Dallas Cowboys are definitely busy right now with more than likely coaching the Senior Bowl, focusing on their own players, and more importantly, the stress of that 4th overall draft pick and who to take with it. But it is never to late to look ahead to the 2016 season. Right after week 17 ended the Dallas Cowboys 2016 opponents were announced. The full schedule wasn’t announced on when the games will be played, but Dallas knows where and who they will play in 2016.

Dallas has a fairly easy schedule, but anything can change in the NFL. We will judge the schedule more once free agency begins and the draft is officially over.

A few games form a first glance. You see where Dallas will travel to Green Bay once again following the 2014 playoff loss in the Divisional Round. Yes, Dallas visited the Packers last season, but Tony Romo did not get a chance to play due to injury and Dez Bryant wasn’t fully healthy either. This will be one to circle on your calendars; Romo and Bryant will want revenge.

Another one that looks interesting is also a rematch from the 2014 playoffs, but this game resulted in a win for the Cowboys. The home game against the Lions is an important one because Detroit is probably still very angry after that “bad no call” against Anthony Hitchens. Playoff rematches are always a lot of fun and hopefully this one will be too, I mean it would also be nice if Dallas just wins by 30 too, but beggars can’t be choosers.

The 2016 season is just around the corner and there are many things to watch out for this offseason, but in the meantime this schedule should give you some excitement.

What do you think?
