This team is nothing like the teams of years past. They have already used 30 different players on defense. When was the last time that had a player intercept 5 passes in a season?
In the last 20 years the cowboys have had 4 teams with defenses in the top 10 in points allowed and 7 in the top 10 in yards allowed....they still are not a shut down defense but they are much improved.
We are 4 games in and directionally look much better, but we have seen the cowboys get off to strong starts many times before and blow it in the first round.
Again, my point is this team has to show that it has the metal to win a divisional game or its not much different from what we have seen over the past decade...teams that are good in the regular season, dominant even at times, but that can't win when it really counts.
I'm optimistic, but that's what I need to see to fully buy in
