The 2021 season has taken a turn for the Dallas Cowboys. After breaking a 6-1 record and becoming NFL darlings, the Cowboys lost three of four games and faced some chaos along the way. Mike McCarthy won’t be coaching at New Orleans, so defensive coordinator Dan Quinn will take his place as de facto head coach.
The Cowboys will recover CeeDee Lamb while Amari Cooper’s status has yet to be determined. In defense, Dallas will recover a huge chunk when DeMarcus Lawrence returns to the lineup for the first time in week one.
But even with all the help, the Cowboys need to improve their game. Quarterback Dak Prescott had a very uneven November and was not playing the way he did in September and October. The constant reshuffle of the offensive line for injury, suspension and performance also appeared to catch up with the Cowboys as their running game faltered.
Defensively, they’ve had some good games, but the turnovers they suffered earlier in the season don’t happen as often. They were also giving up big plays and racking up penalties that led the Raiders to rack up big numbers last week.
All of this led to the Cowboys being in desperate need of a win in New Orleans, or the season could really start to be on the line.
