The boys are back! After years of disappointment and heartbreak, the Dallas Cowboys are finally winning football games again.

This years team has a new look with two rookies leading the team in Dak Prescott at quarterback and Ezekiel Elliot at running back. The two have gotten off to a great start with speculations for both of them to win rookie of the year and possibly for Elliot to win MVP. Elliot is leading the league in rushing yards, with a total of 703. Prescott has 1,486 all purpose yards with 7 touchdowns and only 1 interception.

Not only are the two rookies having a good year, but veterans such as Cole Beasley and the entire offensive line are having some of their best years so far.

Not only is the offense doing well, but the defense is unexpectedly performing at a high level. Defensive backs Morris Claiborne and Byron Jones are finally showing off their talent and linebacker, Sean Lee, is healthy again and playing great.

Overall, the team is playing great starting off with a 5-1 record. It will be interesting to see what happens when seasoned quarterback Tony Romo returns from injury, and if the Cowboys will remain a team that can compete for the Championship.
