How confident are you in the direction of the team?
Last week: 85 percent confidence
It’s not surprising to see that people lost a ton of confidence in the Cowboys after Week 1. In fact the Cowboys fan base saw the largest dip in confidence from week to week among all 32 fan bases at SB Nation. We’re first in something!
The team is going to have to do a lot this week in order to restore the faith among the fan base.
Will the Cowboys win or lose in Week 2?
Odds: Cowboys are 3-point favorites

Shockingly, both Cowboys and Giants fans think that their team is going to win on Sunday. This is a big game as the loser will drop to 0-2 on the season and earn their first division loss.
Other than QB, what is most valuable to an NFL offense?
It’s not like the Cowboys have a wide receiver or tight end on par with Ezekiel Elliott or Tyron Smith, but the merits of those positions should certainly be noted. Nevertheless, we’ve seen how the loss of Tyron impacts the team and it’s not pretty.
Zeke might be in a more unique spot than most running backs in this category, but Tyron is still a hair more important than he is.
