Dallas Cowboys: Week 16 NFL Power Rankings (#16)

Last week: 19 (+3)

Record: 8-6

Net points per drive: -0.06 (18th)

DVOA: -1.9% (16th)

Weighted DVOA: -4.0% (17th)

Heading into December at 6-6, after a rough November, traditionally a strong month, it didn’t look like the Cowboys would choke it away in December again, because they didn’t really have anything to choke away. Now at 8-6, controlling their own destiny for a playoff spot, they can have another late season choke and I think that’s what happens. This is a terrible front running team, as evidenced by both their late season history and their terrible track record as home favorites and I think they lose to the Saints this week for that reason, before losing in Washington week 17, because I just think the Redskins are a much better team.
