The 2023 regular season has officially come to a close and the Dallas Cowboys are NFC East Champions!
While our focus is obviously on the playoffs, the reality of the regular season ending is that 18 teams are headed to the offseason, but also finalizes everybody’s opponent list for next season (after the Bills/Dolphins game, but that doesn’t change anything for Dallas).
Here are all of the teams who the Dallas Cowboys will play next season both at home and on the road.
The NFL’s schedule operates on a rotation and in 2024 the NFC East is scheduled to play both the NFC West and AFC North. Last time the Cowboys played those divisions they hosted the Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns which means they will travel to those places in 2024 and host the opposite teams: New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals.
The Cowboys will also play home and away games against their division rivals, and as division winners themselves, will play the non-NFC West division winners as well. Dallas will host the Detroit Lions (NFC North) and visit the San Francisco 49ers (NFC West).
The NFL moved to a 17-game regular season schedule beginning in 2021 and ever since that 17th game has come from a rotation of divisions in the opposite conference. In 2024 Dallas will play the same-place finisher as them from the AFC South which is the division-winning Houston Texans. All NFC teams will host the 17th game in 2024.
So there you have it, the 2024 Dallas Cowboys opponents. Hopefully we do not have to really dig into this list for a very long time.
Which game are you most looking forward to?
