The 31-28 victory over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11 brings the Dallas Cowboys number of wins in 2020 to a grand total of three. It’s not very encouraging to think of them as one of the bottom dwellers in the league this year, but we can take comfort in the fact they’ve played much better as of late. This is finally starting to look like a team worth watching.
The Dallas Cowboys without a doubt played some of the best football I’ve seen from them at any point this year. In back-to-back games they’ve battled it out with two of the hottest teams in the league (Steelers and Vikings) and surprisingly looked pretty good doing it. Who knows what’s in store for them here on out?
Regardless of what the future holds the Dallas Cowboys look much more like the team we expected to see from the get-go. Instead of looking too far into the future though let’s dial things back and get to this week’s edition of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. And I was always, please feel free to take advantage of the comment section to share your own thoughts and opinions.
Without any second-guessing or hesitation I’m going to go with Donovan Wilson as the good for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11. The Cowboys have been searching all season for someone to step up and make plays from the safety position and No. 37 no doubt did that yesterday afternoon against the Minnesota Vikings. Not only did he have a strip sack of Kirk Cousins, but also caused Dalvin Cook to fumble because of a bone jarring hit he delivered. Hopefully it’s a sign of things to come.
Anthony Brown being on the wrong end of not one, but two receiving touchdowns is the bad for me against the Minnesota Vikings. Sadly, both Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson got the better of No. 30 in Week 11. It’s not the only time these two WRs have gotten the better of an opposing CB, unfortunately this time it was just Brown’s turn. I’m just going to chalk this up as an off game for the Cowboys CB, because I think he’s better than the way he played yesterday afternoon.
Andy Dalton’s play in Week 11 was much better than at any other point to date with the Dallas Cowboys, but it was far from perfect. The start line will read he completed 22 of 32 passes for 203 yards and three touchdowns, but a couple of blemishes nearly turned this into a losing performance. Eric Kendricks got the better of Dalton once on an interception and it was very nearly twice. The second one could’ve been a came sealer for the Vikings. Luckily for No. 14, it wasn’t.
