    Dallas Cowboys: Will They Sink or Swim?

    The 2019 version of the has been a confusing one, to say the least. From week to week you never know which team will show up. One minute they look like the team that started the season 3-0. The next they resemble the team that lost three consecutive games after that hot start.

    Individually, the Cowboys have several players that have performed at a high level. Offensively they possess as good of a three-head monster as there is in the league. currently leads the NFL with 3,788 passing yards. All-Pro is quietly having another productive season as his 990 rushing yards rank fifth. has dealt with his fair share of nagging injuries, however, he is fourth in receiving yards with 971.

    The defensive side of the ball has had a few standout players as well. made himself a household name in 2018 with his 121 tackles, four , four passes defended, two forced fumbles, and two fumble recoveries. So far this season, he's nearly matched his total from a year ago in just 12 games with 112, which leads the league. Another key piece has been who was acquired by in March from the . In just 10 games his 9.5 sacks rank ninth league-wide.

    Individual stats are pointless, though, if a team can't play together simultaneously in all phases. The Cowboys has held two of best teams in the league, the and , to a grand total of 25 points. Unfortunately, the Cowboys underperformed scoring a pedestrian 19 points and the team lost both games.

    Dak Prescott threw for a career-high 463 passing yards and the offense as a whole racked up nearly 600 yards vs the back in Week 5. However, three turnovers led to 17 points for the Packers and the defense allowed 182 all-purpose yards to which included four rushing touchdowns in a 34-24 loss.

    Against the , Prescott threw for 397 yards and Amari Cooper and each went over 100 yards receiving. Defensively, it was not a good night at all. They allowed two touchdown passes from and had 183 all-purpose yards and the Cowboys fell 28-24.

    This continuous inconsistency fully explains how the Cowboys can currently be ranked second in total offense and ninth in total defense and have a 6-6 record. They are the only team with a winning record in the East and have gone 4-0 in division play, yet they are only up a half-game on the . Their backs are to the wall with no room for error. Will they rise to the occasion and win their second straight crown? Will they fold like a bad hand in poker and miss the ? There's no doubt we'll get our answer in the next month.
