2016 NFL Power Rankings: Dallas Cowboys

Below you will find a table of Dallas Cowboys results in our 2016 NFL Power Rankings.

Week/PeriodRankRecordComments
Initial110-0While the Cowboys have a top-four pick in this month's NFL Draft, they also have the best odds (among NFC East teams) to win Super Bowl LI at 20/1, per sportsbook.ag. Of course, the key to their success will be the health of quarterback Tony Romo, as he played in just four games (3-1) last season. They were 1-11 in their other 12 games.
Post-Draft150-0Clearly, Ezekial Elliott is the best running back prospect in this year's draft class, but the Cowboys would have been better off drafting Jalen Ramsey in the first round. Meanwhile, Jaylon Smith was a top-five prospect before his knee injury, but he's expected to miss all of 2016.
Week 1160-0Preseason win projection: 8-8
Week 2200-1Rookie Ezekiel Elliott described his play as "average" in the opener. Not quite "average," Elliott gained just 51 yards on his 20 carries (2.55 YPC).
Week 3171-1The Cowboys have already matched their win total with a backup quarterback from last year. The trio of Brandon Weeden, Matt Cassel and Kellen Moore struggled to a combined 1-11 record last season; Tony Romo was 3-1 as a starter. The Dak Prescott-led Cowboys are touchdown favorites over the Bears in Week 3.
