Cowboys Offense Surprising No.1

58559005
Don’t look now, but the Dallas Cowboys have the number one ranked offense in the NFL. No, this is not my personal opinion, and no I did not make this up, I’m serious. While the Cowboys may not be ranked number one in the rushing or passing game, collectively they are the best.

So what does it take to be ranked number one? Well the Cowboys are producing an outstanding 420.4 yards per game this year. The Cowboys are ranked third in the rush averaging 161 yards per game, and eighth in the passing game averaging 259.4 yards per game.

While the Cowboys have accomplished this ranking against three teams with a losing record, let us not forget that they have also played against the two best defenses in the league (Giants No.1, Broncos No.2) so its not a completely deceiving stat.

Take it for what you will, but you just can’t argue with the numbers. If the defense can improve from its 21st overall ranking, maybe just maybe these Cowboys have a shot to escape this season with a winning record. But that is certainly a big IF.

    What isn’t mentioned is their pathetic red zone offense. If they got that on track they could be real problems for a lot of teams. I think the defense is good, the offense just doesn’t score enough. The defense only gave up 10 points to the Chiefs really, the offense gifted the Chiefs the other 10. The games would be a lot more like the Tampa game if the offense would clean up.

  2. Patrick Sells says:

    I partly agree with you Thomas, the redzone offense simply must improve if they plan on winning more games, however defense wins championships and continuing to allow touchdowns in the final two minutes to teams is simply unacceptable. And giving up ten points to the Chiefs shouldn’t be anything to be proud of.

    Ah, point for you. But do not forget that this is the NFL and just because a team in winless so far doesn’t mean they can’t win, they just haven’t yet. I think many people think that this Cowboys team is better than it is. I’m a big Parcells fan and he always used to say, “we are what we are”. I just think that in the NFL to expect your defense to give up 10 points or less to any team is unreasonable, even to the Rams or Raiders. I don’t buy into that defense win championships…you need both. If you don’t get one or the other you don’t win. It is frustrating that the Boys seem to lack that killer instinct in the closing minutes, with the Panthers game the exception. But I’ll take any win, because nothing is guaranteed in this league. Look at the Titans. Who’d a thought that?

  4. I partly agree with you Thomas
