Cowboys schedule presents worse results than last year

Finishing with 3 out 4 on the road in December is brutal for a team with history of struggling down the stretch. And 4 out of the last six are on the road with three of those divisional games. September we didn't get any favors either with our two probable losses at home with SF and the Saints with Titans and Rams on the road which those would have been more favorable to win at home.

Our stretch after Sept thru the Jags leading up to the bye is more favorable with 4 out 6 games winnable games. We must win 5 of 6 of those to overcome what could be a down season.

Bottomline, we received some of the toughest games at home with SF, NO & Indy which appear losable regardless of where they are with only our most loseable game on the road in Seattle which is fine. It doesn't matter where we play them we will lose.

I'd say unless our division is as poor as last year I simply cannot see more than 7 wins this year and that's assuming we stay healthy and have a decent draft . Not only will we most likely have a losing record at home with only 7 games almost more certainty to have a losing record on the road.

I'm leaning more towards 6 wins and hoping for 7. It's sad because I actually feel as though we could be an improved team this year especially on offense but our schedule and the likelihood our division is improved will do us in. Unless we start beating above .500 teams with more regularity, the NFC West this year collapses along with no improvements in AFC South and our division. That's allot to hope for. What a shame . The schedule did us no favors screwed us.
