The NFL postseason is right around the corner, presenting an opportunity for teams to cement themselves into NFL history. The Cowboys Dallas will be rolling into their third consecutive postseason appearance but want to make a deep run. They have the talent to do so.
Let's dive into some numbers that work in Dallas' favor.
1. 367.3 Total Yards
The Cowboys don't lack talent or skilled players on the offensive side. That is something that will favor them going forward. The Kansas City Chiefs (Super Bowl LVII), Los Angeles Rams (Super Bowl LVI), and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Super Bowl LV) have won the past three Super Bowls and all have something in common. They finished the season ranked in the Top 10 in total offense.
Dallas will also roll into the playoffs with a Top 10 offensive unit. Heading into Week 18, the Cowboys are ranked sixth in total offense (367.3), fourth in passing offense (255.5), and second in points per game (29.4). Being able to efficiently move the ball and put up points is crucial when going up against the best teams in the league.
Quarterback Dak Prescott is at the helm of this group. Prescott has played like an MVP candidate for different stretches of the season. The 30-year-old is extremely accurate and keeps the offense playing in a good rhythm.
The Mississippi State product is fourth in the league in passing yards (4,237), first in passing scores (32), and second in QBR (70.6). Additionally, he's tossed for at least 300 yards in five games during the regular season.
