The Dallas Cowboys had the week off and now they head off to Minnesota to play in the first of their final seven games of the 2020 season. With a 2-7 record, the Cowboys chances for the postseason weaken with each new game, even though nobody else in the NFC East likes to do much winning either. Right now, all we can hope for is that they can put up a good showing and look for something to build on for next season.

Who knows exactly how many more games this team will win this year, but to get somewhat of an idea, let’s check in and see how some of their future opponents fared this past weekend.
