Our analysts and experts break down the most important angles of this game.
Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the full story here.
With all of that talent on an offense that ranks first in the NFL in third down conversion percentage at 48.98%, how can the Cowboys be only 6-6?
They have the same record as a Bears offense quarterbacked by Mitchell Trubisky, who leads a unit lacking that same talent and elite offensive play that’s only converting 31.41% of their third downs (29th).
This Cowboys offense ranks first in the NFL with 6.5 yards per play and were just recently at 6.7 prior to last week. For perspective, only four (!) offenses have finished a season averaging 6.7 yards per play or better since 2005, and those four teams had a combined regular-season record of 51-13, and not one had fewer than 11 wins — that’s a smidge below an 80% winning percentage, yet here the Cowboys are at 6-6.
