The Cowboys have only played 11 games, we're not playing anyone in the playoffs right now.So, following your logic (standings best reflect what you are)... you are on record saying:
-You'd rather face the Bucs than the Giants
-You'd rather face the Vikings than the 49ers
Vegas sure doesn't think the standings tell the real story.
That's why every rankings list is different. Everyone has an opinion.
Power rankings are as dumb as draft grades at the end of the draft.
You think Vegas S-Bowl odds-making is dumb too? No better than throwing darts? Those odds are really the same thing as a power ranking. They tend to have a pretty good pulse on it. I don't bet myself, but I find rankings interesting.
All of them are stupid because this isn’t a top 5 team. Here are teams I’d rank above Dallas:
Bills, Eagles, Chiefs, 49ers, Ravens, Dolphins, and Titans.
Packers and Bucs too (because for some reason this team severely struggles against both teams. I guess fear of Brady and Rodgers makes this team poop it’s pants and those teams will win against this team no matter how good we are and how bad they are 9 times out of 10)
