The Cowboys (AKA America’s Team) are no doubt one of the legendary teams in the NFL. They are one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world. “Big D” began playing football in 1960 as an expansion team and over the years has cultivated a rich history based on talent, high expectations, controversy and winning. The heydays of the Cowboys came in the ‘70’s and the ’90’s under coaches Tom Landry and Jimmy Johnson where they racked up multiple division championships, 5 Super Bowl wins with some of the most dominate seasons and most exciting games in the history of the league. As Jimmy Johnson said back in ’92 after the win over 49ers that propelled them to another Super Bowl Championship: “How ‘bout them Cowboys!” The “Ring of Honor” is unique to the Cowboys and differentiates them from all other franchises. Dallas doesn’t officially retire player numbers or give awards to their most valued players, instead they are inducted into this elite club where their names will live forever in a permanent display surrounding the field.

2016 Cowboys Season Preview
The Dallas Cowboys were a revelations in 2014. The addition of Zach Martin helped turn the Cowboys offensive line into the best unit in the game. Behind that stellar offensive line, Tony Romo and company rallied to 12 wins, including an extremely rare road win in Seattle. The Cowboys cemented themselves as one of the top 5 teams in the NFL last season, and won their first playoff game since 2009. A controversial overturned catch in the NFC Divisional Round left Dallas hungry for more in 2015. The Cowboys will have to do it without star running back DeMarco Murray, who bolted for the division rival Eagles in the offseason. To replace Murray’s NFL leading rushing output from last season, the Cowboys will lean on newly signed Darren McFadden, as well as veteran backup Joseph Randle. Maybe more so than any other team in the NFC, the Cowboys solved just about all of their needs in the 2015 NFL Draft. First round cornerback Byron Jones has the talent to play from day one, and should sure up what was a shaky Cowboys secondary last season. Also new in 2015 will be pass rush ace Randy Gregory, who will look to team up with Demarcus Lawrence to help improve a league basement pass rush from 2014. The Cowboys also picked up forecasted first round draft pick La’el Collins and resigned superstar Dez Bryant to a long term deal. If the Cowboys defense can stay healthy, and Tony Romo’s back holds up, the Dallas Cowboys have a legitimate shot to make a Super Bowl run in 2015. 2015 might be the Cowboys best shot at a title since Troy Aikman hung up his cleats.

This rivalry goes all the way back to the birth of the Cowboys franchise and the beef between Clint Murchison and George Marshall. This has been called the top rivalry in all of the NFL and “one of greatest in sports” by Sports Illustrated. Because they are both in the NFC East, the importance of the games is higher the pace more intense and you get to see this 2 times every season.
This is one of the more unique rivalries in sports, mainly due to the locations of the two franchises, and is the only dependable rivalry between a Texas sports team and New York team. Putting these teams into the same division was the birth of long standing and heated rivalry. Dominance has swung back and forth over the decades leading to some of the best games in league history.
Cowboys vs. 49ers
These teams were both powerhouses in the 90’s and have been called dynasties many times. This has led to some extremely exciting, high-stakes games with the winner ultimately becoming the Super Bowl champion. The games between these two storied franchises lead to moments like “The Catch”, the genesis of the phrase “How ‘bout them cowboys” and consecutive meetings for NFC titles. This matchup is one of the most underrated yet decisive in all of the NFL.
One of the more contentious and publicized rivalries in the last 25 years, both teams (and fans) can be extra brutal. The rivalry has been running 40+ years and has strengthened year over year. One of the most notorious meetings was the ‘89 “Bounty Bowl” where Jimmy Johnson call out Buddy Ryan for putting bounties on QB Troy Aikman and kicker Luis Zendejas. The Eagles use the Cowboys success in division championships and Super Bowls for motivation while the Cowboys use the disrespectful/dirty play of Philadelphia.
Dallas Cowboys in the Super Bowl, NFC Championship and NFL Playoffs
Few teams have accomplished what the Cowboys have accomplished. They went on a tear in the 70’s and 90’s compiling 5 Super Bowl championships and coming close to a “three-peat” and could have even been a “four-peat” if you’re an optimist and a huge cowboys fan. The team has won 20+ division championships looking back all the way to the mid-sixties. With over 29 playoff appearances, they are one of the top teams in the league and will only continue to add to this number.
