Dallas Cowboys: 2012 Week 2 Power Rankings (#15)

Last week: 17 (+2)

Record: 1-0

The Cowboys beat the Giants because Tony Romo had one of the best games of his career. However, they committed 13 penalties, which could have easily derailed them, but Tony Romo wouldn’t let it happen and kept coming up with big throw after big throw. They’ll be right in the NFC East mix, where all 4 teams are evenly matched, but they’ll have to clean that up.
