When this season started, there was a lot of hope, a lot of expectations and even some boasting about having the best team top to bottom since the great teams of the 90’s. But the NFL is a fickle beast and can snatch anything good away from you in an instant.
The season began with a lot of promise, and boasting by the fan base as the Cowboys won a thriller on opening night, then proceeded to dismantle Philadelphia in week two.
