Cowboys and Texans Predictions
With the start of the NFL season just a few hours away, we thought we would give your our predictions. Here is what the team here at Texas Sports Junkie think will be the outcomes for both the Cowboys and Texans this season.
JD: I’ve got the Cowboys at a solid 10-6. The Cowboys were plagued with injuries last season, and still were 1 game away from an NFC east title. The Cowboys biggest weakness was their secondary, and the Cowboys answered by signing Brandon Carr, and drafting Morris Caiborne. With Mike Jenkins and Orlando Scandrick still on the roster, the secondary is now their strength. Demarco Murray should make the offense more balanced, and will open up passing lanes for Romo to get the ball to Dez, Miles, and Witten. The question mark for the boys is the two lines, and if they can at least be serviceable, America’s team should make a legit run at an NFC east title, possibly more.
SC: I have the Cowboys going 11-5 maybe 10-6, at worst and making a deep run in the playoffs. I know that some may say that is high and call me a ‘homer’ but I really think they have filled a lot of their holes. I have heard national analysts predict a lot of 8-8s and even a couple of 7-9s and I think that is just nuts. The past few years the national media has predicted Dallas to do very well because on paper, they have been very talented and since they have continually fallen short, I believe the media has given up on them. That is why we are seeing these really bad record predictions. I say the Cowboys split the series with both Giants and Eagles, and even if they lose to the Ravens, Falcons, Saints, and Steelers that still puts them at 10-6. Tony Romo will have his blind side protected and with our sured up secondary, Ryan will be able to unleash his D on his opponents. AMERICA’S TEAM will have their best season of the 21st century.
JD: The Texans now own the AFC south, with Peyton playing ball in the Rocky Mountains. Arian Foster will be the heart and soul of the offense, which should allow Schaub to throw down field to Andre Johnson. The defense should still be a top D in the AFC, but will miss Mario Williams and Dameco Ryan up front. If the Texans can still get to the QB without Super Mario, skies the limit on potential for this team. If the D takes a step back, an AFC south title might be all the Texans win. 10-6.
SC: It’s going to a great year for NFL fans in Texas. I have the Texans finishing, one win better than last year, at 11-5, winning the AFC South and making a possible Super Bowl run. Assuming, Schaub stays healthy, I think they learn from last year and challenge the Patriots for the title of AFC Champions.
