    Super Bowl Bound? Cowboys Continue To Leap Over NFC Foes

    Coming off of their sixth straight victory and sitting comfortably atop the , the are riding high.

    Rookie is the NFL's leading rusher, rookie is leaps and bounds ahead of where we thought he'd be, is back and healthy, and this highly criticized is playing way above their heads.

    Now, 8 weeks into what looks like a super season, the Cowboys are the clear favorites to win the NFC and get to that .

    According to The Westgate Las Vegas Superbook, the Cowboys are 3/1 favorites to win their conference, just ahead of the (7/2) and the (7/2).

    In terms of winning the whole thing, the Cowboys are second (7/1) to only the , who are listed 8/5 to win yet another Super Bowl.

    As great as the Cowboys have looked, it has been the downfall of the former NFC-powerhouses which have skyrocketed the Cowboys odds even higher.

    The , led by former Super Bowl , are no where near as complete of a team that we had expected them to be. The Seattle Seahawks look downright dreadful on , with hobbled with an ankle . The two participants in last year's NFC title game, the Panthers and Cardinals, are both having bad seasons so far. And the once 5-0 Minnesota Vikings have dropped two straight, including an awful loss in Chicago Monday night.

    The crash-and-burn of last year's NFC playoff teams has made the Cowboys rise to the top even more meaningful, regardless of how early in the season it is. At 6-1, they are a full two games ahead of the 2nd place team in the conference, and seem set to run away with this thing.

    I don't like to get too far ahead of myself when it comes to projecting games, but with the , , and a Trent Williams-less team coming up on the schedule, 9-2 or 10-1 isn't out of the question for the Cowboys.

    Regardless of how these next few weeks go, it is pretty stunning that a Dallas Cowboys team without are the favorites to win the NFC. Welcome to the future, , it looks really great around here.

    Kevin: before booking your ticket to Houston, it’s worth remembering a few things:

    1. The Cowboys are 6-1, its true, but we aren’t yet halfway into our season. How about we win a few more games before talking Super Bowl?
    2. In 1967, the Baltimore Colts entered the final week of the season undefeated, yet missed the playoffs. Google it if you don’t believe me.
    3. In 2007, the Cowboys were 13-3 and held home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs — we all know how that turned out.

    Bottom line: we’ve won six games, nothing more. Cool your jets, buddy.

    After the Steelers game I will start to get excited . If we win . Till then let’s just enjoy this ride .
