The Dallas Cowboys are one of the best supported National Football League (NFL) teams in terms of sheer numbers, as is evident by their record of selling out 190 consecutive regular and post-season games since 2002. Part of the reason for their popularity is the success the Cowboys have enjoyed since their creation in 1960. Five Super Bowl wins stand out from the crowd, with 10 conference championships, 22 divisional championships, and 31 playoff appearances complementing those five runs.
While 2014 saw the Cowboys finish 12-4 to win the NFC East, 2015 was bitterly disappointing and saw that record reversed to 4-12 to finish bottom of the division.
Part of the reason for the sudden downturn in fortunes were injuries to Dez Bryant, Orlando Scandrick, and Tony Romo, who played only 13 of a combined 48 games. This trio should be back fit and well for the 2016 campaign, so expect the Cowboys to be resurgent.
Romo in particular is crucial to the Cowboys success. He is talented enough to be considered one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the NFL, but injuries are a concern.
The 36-year-old’s 2014 season was awesome. Romo finished with a 113.2 rating, threw 34 touchdowns and 3,705 yards, with a 69.9 percent completion. He only played four games in 2015, but if he can reproduce 2014’s form, the Cowboys could cause a few upsets.

How To Make Money Betting On Dallas Cowboys
Your best bet to make money betting on the Dallas Cowboys is to wager on them winning the NFC East division at odds of +162. The Cowboys should finish around 10-6 and that should be enough to top the division.
We have already spoken about how important Tony Romo’s return is, but having Dez Bryant back at wide receiver is another major boost.
Bryant is easily one of the top 10 players in the NFC East and if he can reproduce his 2014 form when he received for 1,320 yards and scored 16 touchdowns, Cowboys’ offense will be back up the charts.
Speaking of offense, the Cowboys severely missed Romo and Bryant in 2015, as shown by their offense being ranked 12 from 16 NFC teams. They made 335.1 yards per game, but scored a meagre 17.2 points per game, the second lowest of any NFC side.
Defensively, the Cowboys were quite solid, ending the season ranked ninth from 16 teams. Passing defense was up there with the top defensive teams, but 1,934 yards allowed from rushing was one of the worst records.
