Next Sunday is still a long time away.

The Dallas Cowboys will host the Carolina Panthers next Sunday and when they do they could be looking for their third win in a row.

A Monday night contest against the Philadelphia Eagles stands between the Cowboys and focusing on the Panthers, but Cowboys fans were very aware of a notable potential change to the matchup on Thursday night when Carolina suffered a huge injury.

There is no question that the best...

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott discusses role, contract

While Elliott will be hard-pressed to reach the 1,756 all-purpose yards he averaged through his first four seasons in the NFL, he’s more than willing to watch his teammates succeed.

Under the radar stars: Three Cowboys who didn’t get enough praise Sunday

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

These men weren’t talked about much following Dallas’ momentous win. But they should've been.

There is just something different about the week that follows a Cowboys’ Sunday victory. Breathing gets a little bit easier, mental morale is sky high, and each day of the week represents another hopeful climb to that fantastic victorious feeling once again — that is of course, if the team exit the coming weekend with another win.

And while Dallas’ 20-17...

Welcome to the NFL, Chauncey Golston.

The injury bug is hitting the Cowboys hard heading into week three against the Eagles. DeMarcus Lawrence will miss significant time with a broken foot, Dorance Armstrong will miss the next month or so with a high ankle sprain, Neville Gallimore is still on the IR-return list, Donovan Wilson is still not practicing with a groin injury, Carlos Watkins will miss Monday Night Football and possibly more with a...

Cowboys vs. Eagles first injury report: Donovan Wilson held out of practice, Amari Cooper limited

The first injury report for the Cowboys’ Monday night game is in.

The Cowboys get their first swing at an NFC East win on Monday night when they take on the Eagles. Injuries are always an issue, and COVID is too in this new era. The Cowboys have a few more injuries this week that will keep a couple of players out on Monday. The defensive line takes a double hit as both Dorance Armstrong (high ankle sprain) and Carlos Watkins (knee) have been ruled out...

NFL history suggests Cowboys defense will continue on a positive trajectory in generating turnovers

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Turnovers win games, and it seems like the Cowboys are getting good at causing them.

Through two weeks of the season no defense in the NFL has generated more turnovers on defense than the Dallas Cowboys. Read it again.

We are talking about an extremely small sample size to be clear; it is literally going to grow by 50% this coming week, but it is still nice to see the Cowboys atop the league when it comes to taking the ball away from other...

Players who could be upgrades with the Dallas Cowboys, if available, and acquired via trade

One man’s trash could be another man’s treasure. Maybe the Cowboys can go dumpster diving.

When it comes to the Dallas Cowboys, when they make a trade it’s one nobody is really expecting. It’s almost as if they come out of thin air, even though we know that’s not the case. Churning the roster is a nonstop business and teams talk back and forth all the time to inquire about certain player’s availability. It’s just the nature of the...

Coming of their first win of the 2021 season, the Cowboys face the Eagles on Monday Night Football. So what does the analytics tell us about this matchup?

The Dallas Cowboys squaring off against the Philadelphia Eagles in primetime football, likely playing for the division lead, does it get more American than that? With Dak Prescott looking like the Comeback Player of the Year and the Eagles emerging as better than expected, the 125th installment...

Jayron Kearse, from afterthought to difference maker with the Cowboys

Jayron Kearse is off to a hot start, but can he keep it up?

It would have been hard to predict the impact Jayron Kearse has made defensively with the Dallas Cowboys through the first two weeks of the 2021 season. The Cowboys and the fans certainly didn’t see it coming. And yet, here we are.

To say No. 27 has been a pleasant surprise thus far since joining the Cowboys would be an understatement. He’s been a difference maker,...

Cowboys analytics roundup: Where does Dallas stand after two games?

Photo by Harry How/Getty Images

The data is surprisingly positive for the Cowboys defense.

With their win on Sunday, the Cowboys pulled into a tie for the second-best record in the entire NFL. Yes, they’re only 1-1, but that doesn’t make it any less correct of a statement.

Of course, with just two games being played so far, any sort of data that’s pulled out of these teams is not as reliable as it will be later on in the year. The nice thing about more advanced metrics is that...

The Dallas Cowboys may have just broken an important streak with their win against the Chargers

Good teams beat good teams, something the Cowboys finally did.

It has been a few days since the Dallas Cowboys successfully defeated the Los Angeles Chargers, a victory that should be considered the highest-quality win they have experienced with Mike McCarthy as their head coach.

Winning in Los Angeles seemed difficult at best when they were facing the reality of trying to do it without the likes of Michael Gallup, La’el Collins, Randy Gregory, DeMarcus...

Sunday was one of the best wins by the Cowboys in quite some time. Dallas got a much-needed victory on the road against a good football team that hopefully can be the start of a long winning streak.

Today, we take a look at three takeaways from the snap counts in Week 2 against Los Angeles. We’ll list the defensive snap counts below since they tend to change more week-to-week. But we will also...

More challenges on the injury front for the Cowboys defense.

To say that things have been challenging for the Dallas Cowboys on the injury front would be a bit casual. Despite the fact that we are only at Week 3 of the season, America’s Team has had to get creative in several different ways. Michael Gallup, La’el Collins, Zack Martin, Randy Gregory, and DeMarcus Lawrence are just some of the players who have already missed time during this campaign...

Did Refs Cheat Chargers Out Of Victory Over Cowboys? (Video)

The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Los Angeles Chargers 20-17 this past Sunday afternoon. Unfortunately, the win did not come without controversy. The referees in this one were extremely whistle-happy, calling 20 penalties cumulatively between the two sides.
