2022 NFL Preview: Cowboys' playoff jinx struck again at the end of a very good season

  2022 NFL Preview: Cowboys' playoff jinx struck again at the end of a very good season 2022 NFL Preview: Cowboys' playoff jinx struck again at the end of a very good seasonAn NFL team can play a full season, look like the best team in football at times, then lose in the playoffs and everything else is forgotten. The Cowboys were good enough to be the best team in Football Outsiders' DVOA last season. If you don't trust that metric, go back and watch Dallas' 56-14 win over the Washington Commanders. The Cowboys were very good.

The Cowboys’ new-look receiving corps will be lighter on experience this year, and a Monday injury may push this situation more in that direction.

After being carted away from practice, James Washington is feared to have suffered a Jones fracture in his foot, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. The offseason addition is going through an MRI. The exam confirming these fears would lead to a lengthy absence for Washington, who was set to be a key contributor for the Cowboys — especially early in the season.

Jones fractures shelved both Derrick Henry and Deebo Samuel over the past two seasons. Henry missed more than two months of action because of his injury, though the Titans were careful with their All-Pro running back and held him out through their first-round bye. Samuel, who suffered his Jones fracture in mid-June 2020, did not return until early October of that season.

NFL MVP odds: The case for Josh Allen

  NFL MVP odds: The case for Josh Allen Allen is the betting favorite to bring home the 2022 MVP award — and he's the favorite for a reason.On Wednesday, we started with Tom Brady, and now we turn our attention to the betting favorite: Josh Allen.

Although Washington had fallen out of favor in Pittsburgh, Dallas added him as part of its post-Amari Cooper mix. The team will not have recently re-signed Michael Gallup to start the season, with the fifth-year target confirming his ACL tear will not allow for a Week 1 return. The Cowboys used a third-round pick on South Alabama’s Jalen Tolbert as well. The team also returns veteran role player Noah Brown, a sixth-year contributor.

NFL futures, odds: Dallas Cowboys still projected to be cream of the crop in NFC East

  NFL futures, odds: Dallas Cowboys still projected to be cream of the crop in NFC East NFL futures, odds: Dallas Cowboys still projected to be cream of the crop in NFC EastDallas was the betting favorites to defeat San Francisco, but they failed to get it done. San Francisco came out to a 23-7 lead before ten fourth quarter points from the Cowboys made the game look closer than it really was. Dallas even had a chance late, before the infamous Dak Prescott rush up the middle to run out the clock.

Chiefs cut former first-round pick Deandre Baker .
The soon-to-be-25-year-old will surely get another opportunity, as teams are always on the lookout for CB depth (especially when that depth comes with a first-round pedigree).A first-round pick of the Giants in 2019, Baker played in all 16 games in his rookie season, including 15 starts. He did not perform particularly well, yielding a 116.2 passer rating and earning a poor 48.4 overall grade from Pro Football Focus, but as a Day 1 selection, Baker was in line to get another extended look in 2020 for a rebuilding New York outfit.
