Identifying Players the Dallas Cowboys Must Contain Each Week in 2019 3

1. New England Patriots

Forget about the concerns after 's . This will be fine with Julian Edelman and rookie N'Keal Harry leading the . One of the main reasons I have them at #1 is their defense. The Patriots might have lost Trey Flowers, but they added plenty of talent, such as and Chase Winovich. They have one of the defensive backs group in the league.

2. Los Angeles Rams

The Rams made the Super Bowl last year and will be back among the best teams in the NFL. They still have a quality OL and a great offense led by 's marvelous play-calling. On defense, they lost Ndamukong Suh but still have a ton of talent including the best defensive player in football, . and Taylor Rapp reinforce the .

3. New Orleans Saints

This offense will be just as good as last year. is among the best wide receivers in the game and he's paired with an elite QB in . will have to lead the without Mark Ingram. Many talk about their offense, but the Saints' defense is pretty solid as well.

4. Kansas City Chiefs

Concerns on the Chief's defense prevail and rightfully so. They added players like but still lost some like and Eric Berry. They'll have a tough challenge of winning the division with the Chargers competing with them. But Patrick Mahomes shocked us all last season and while I doubt he'll match his debut year, he'll be a great for the Chiefs going forward.

5. Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers are a legitimate threat in the AFC. They have a great offense with an elite running back ( is holding out ahead of training camp, but I'd be surprised if he doesn't play the regular season) and a great set of wide receivers. Leading the pack is QB , who's still got it. The defense is talented in every level, with a great couple of pass rushers.

6. Indianapolis Colts

With a solid , Andrew Luck proved he was back last year. What HC Frank Reich and GM Chris Ballard have done in Indianapolis is truly amazing. They've built a contending team and they could still get better at some point in the season given their cap space.

7. Chicago Bears

Many are dropping the Bears on their power rankings. Not me. They have one of the most talented defenses in the country and they've done a very good job by giving QB Mitchell Trubisky enough weapons to get that offense going. Vic Fangio left his defensive coordinator job to join the Denver Broncos as the HC, but Chuck Pagano should hold the fort just fine.

8. Dallas Cowboys

I'm picking the Cowboys to barely win the East. Their defense shocked the nation last season and this time they'll be even better. On offense, Kellen Moore will be the biggest change as the new and I expect it to be a positive change. Dak Prescott will be working with the best WR group he's had to the date. Oh, and the best in pro football, , is reporting to camp and will be ready for regular season football after missing last year's campaign.
