Three Moves The Cowboys Need To Make To Start Winning Again

The Dallas Cowboys season is looking pretty rough these days. WIth a 2-5 record, the Cowboys are still in contention for the NFC East. The Cowboys could take sole possession of first place in the NFC East on Sunday with a date with the 2-4-1 Philadelphia Eagles.


If the Cowboys cannot convert, the Cowboys will be in serious danger of losing everything this season. With that in mind, the Cowboys will need to start making these three moves in order to start winning.


Run The Ball


The Cowboys need to get Tony Pollard more involved. The fact that Zeke has just as many fumbles (5) at the midway point than he has in an entire season (6) is concerning. Pollard and Zeke might need to start splitting up the snaps.


Even if the team splits the carries, the fact of the matter would be that the team would be running the football. The team needs to shred the clock because the team does not have a true quarterback. If the Cowboys can properly manage the clock, then the team doesn’t have the defense on the field as long and that’s a good thing.


Make A Move


Go get Ryan Fizpatrick. The Cowboys are starting Ben DiNucchi on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles in a must-win game. Who? Exactly. In what could be the biggest game of the season for the Cowboys, the team is rolling with the 2020 seventh-round pick out of James Madison.


DiNucci could shock the world, but let’s be real. Fitzpatrick was benched for Tua Tagoavailo in Miami. Fitz led the Dolphins to a 3-3 record and a second place standing. The team should roll the dice in what feels like a furloughed year for Dallas.


Sign Marcell Dareus


After releasing Dontari Poe this week, the Cowboys need a run stopper. Dareus could be the best available free agent. Dareus is the former No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and is a former Pro Bowl selection. In 2013 and 2014, Dareus was named to the Pro Bowl, while in 2014 he was a First-Team All-Pro for the Buffalo Bills.


Even if Dareus doesn’t make a huge impact, he will still be an upgrade.
