Many might have been waiting for the Cowboys to be exposed against top competition, instead, Dallas proved itself as a Super Bowl contender against the New Orleans Saints.

The arrival of Amari Cooper has opened up this offense and allowed Dak Prescott to take his game up a notch. More importantly, this defense is playing at an extremely high level and looking like one of the best units in the NFL.

After shutting down New Orleans, it’s clear the Cowboys have the pieces in place to compete for the Super Bowl. Now they just need to execute more consistently and they could very well make it to Atlanta.
