5. Dallas Cowboys

Despite an impressive 3-0 start to the season, there were some critics that pointed out how the Dallas Cowboys had yet to be truly tested, and it was a fair point.

With two losses in a row to the New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers, the Cowboys are all of a sudden facing extra pressure heading into Sunday’s contest against the New York Jets.

A third loss in a row on top of the Philadelphia Eagles beating the Minnesota Vikings would result in Dallas slipping out of first place in the NFC East, which Jason Garrett would hate to see.

After looking at how awful the Jets looked last weekend during their loss on the road to the Eagles, there’s every reason to believe this game will be a walk in the park for the Cowboys.

But also, the last thing Dallas can afford to do is take a light approach with this one since New York is hitting the point in which they have nothing to lose, and could be playing with extra motivation to pull off an upset win.

Plus, if New York’s defense finds a way to force turnovers on Dak Prescott just like Green Bay did in Week 5, maybe there would be some hope for the Jets after all.
