They have not won a Super Bowl since 1995, and after coming within a whisker of the conference championship game in 2014, they plummeted to a 4-12 mark in 2015. The Cowboys success seems to be tied to Tony Romos health. If Romo is healthy, they win. When he isnt, they lose. The arrival of Dak Prescott seems to have changed the narrative a little, but the rookie quarterback is still learning as he goes and it is impossible to know yet if he is truly the real deal.Whats goodThe Cowboys title track checks in at No. 40, thanks to their storied history and the fans belief that even when things are bad, a title cant be too far away (despite the drought, only 10 NFL teams ranked better than the Cowboys in the team has won or will win at least one championship in my lifetime). Its true that the Cowboys have an offense that can carry them if all of the pieces are healthy. They have the best offensive line in football. Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott should be one of the best in the NFL. Dez Bryant is healthy once again. And even with Dak Prescott performing well in Romos absence, the Cowboys are still Tony Romos team. If Romo can stay healthy, the Cowboys can score a lot of points, protect their defense and be the best team in the NFC East. Is that enough to get them to Super Bowl LI? That seems a little much.Whats badA 106th-ranked bang for the buck proves it: Paying high ticket, concession and parking prices is a lot easier when a team wins. The Cowboys didnt win in 2015, so it becomes a little more painful. AT&T Stadium is the best of the NFL, but it comes with a price (the fourth-highest average ticket cost in the NFL, and the leagues most expensive parking). Off the field, the Cowboys have managed to cash in with their $1.2 billion stadium. On the field, they havent. They have a sub-.500 record at home since they moved to Arlington in 2009.Whats newComing off a 12-4 finish to the 2014 season, things were looking up for the Cowboys in the coaching department. Head coach Jason Garrett was rewarded with a five-year, $30 million contract after the Cowboys made the playoffs, but then they slipped to a 4-12 finish. The fans noticed, dropping the Cowboys coaching rank 37 spots (to No. 96) and their player rank 28 (to No. 81). Both of those drops come down to Romos injuries: With a healthy Romo and Bryant, Garrett went 12-4. Without them, he went 4-12 -- and the team won just one of 12 without Romo. While blaming a lack of depth is reasonable, the Cowboys were competitive in enough games that coaching could have made a difference. Garrett might find himself at least on a moderately warm -- if not hot -- seat in 2016.Next: New York Jets?| Full rankings Nike Tanjun Mens Australia .

Wilson hit Schenn from behind during Tuesday nights game in Philadelphia, earning a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct.

LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- No matter how gloomy things seem this season, the Chicago Bears insist they are better than the record shows.A few more wins would help their argument.They could start to salvage something from this season when they meet the Jacksonville Jaguars in a matchup of last-place teams on Sunday.Were so close, Chicago linebacker Willie Young said. And when you go back and look at the film and you see a couple of plays, I guess every game, wins or losses, come down to a few plays. And to see how close we are is a lot of motivation.The Bears (1-4) were hoping to make a jump in coach John Foxs second season after winning just six games last season.Its not playing out that way.Chicago has been hit hard by injuries and inconsistent play and comes into this game last in the NFC North after losing at Indianapolis a week ago.The Jaguars (1-3) were off after beating Indianapolis in London. They still have a chance to climb in the AFC South if they can pick up a rare road win, something they have done just four times in 25 games in coach Gus Bradleys four seasons.They have played considerably better after the break during Bradleys tenure -- winning four of five in 2013 and two of three last season.And while theyre last in the division, theyre only a half-game behind Tennessee and Indianapolis and 1+ games back of first-place Houston.Here are some things to look for from the Bears and Jaguars:LITTLE CONSISTENCY: Last weeks game was a case study in inconsistency for the Bears. And thats something they hope to change on Sunday.Against the Colts, Brian Hoyer delivered his third straight 300-yard passing effort and had his QB rating rise to 108.5 for the season.But he did not see an open Alshon Jeffery in the end zone on the Bears final offensive play -- an incompletion. Receiver Cameron Meredith had nine catches for 130 yards filling in for the injured Kevin White, but fumbled in the fourth quarter.Chicago had 522 yards of offense for its highest total since 1989, but had one touchdown on three tries in the red zone. The Bears rank 30th in points per game even though they are ninth in total offense.TURNOVER-FREE FOOTBALL: Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles played turnoverr-free football against Indianapolis in London. Nike Air Footscape Magista Australia. It was just the seventh time in 33 starts the third-year pro avoided throwing an interception or fumbling. The Jaguars are 5-2 in those games, accounting for more than half of Bortles nine career victories. He had seven turnovers, including six interceptions, in the first three games this season.Its more so not forcing things, not trying to make plays down the field early in games when theyre not there, he said.ROOKIES DELIVER: The Jaguars are getting significant contributions from four rookies on defense -- five if you count defensive end Dante Fowler Jr., who missed his rookie season with a knee injury. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey, defensive end Yannick Ngakoue, linebacker Myles Jack and defensive tackle Sheldon Day have turned in solid performances in the first four games.We are going to continue to push them, defensive coordinator Todd Wash said. And we expect them to continue to play well.WORTH WATCHING: The matchup between Ramsey and Jeffery could be a good one.Ramsey has been impressive so far and highly effective in Jacksonvilles pressing scheme. Jeffery, tied for 11th in the NFL in receiving, has not caught more than five passes or been targeted more than seven times this season. But he remains one of the leagues most dangerous receivers.SHUFFLING `D: The Bears have been forced to shuffle their rotation on defense. And they might have more switches this week.Chris Prosinski could start at safety after replacing Harold Jones-Quartey during the loss to the Colts. And cornerback Bryce Callahan might sit out with a hamstring injury, leading to playing time for Jacoby Glenn, rookies Deiondre Hall and CreVon LeBlanc.The secondary has been banged up, starting with cornerback Kyle Fullers knee surgery before the regular season.Injuries to linebackers Danny Trevathan, Lamarr Houston and nose tackle Eddie Goldman have made things more difficult, yet Chicago ranks 14th in yards allowed after finishing 19th last season.---AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ;Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
