The Dallas Cowboys' 2020 run defense ranked 31st in the NFL last season. That's second-worst in the league.
Welcome to the Daily Blitz by DSP Media in partnership with CowboysSI.com.
The Cowboy' 2021 schedule looks to be loaded with running back talent again, with the likes of Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley (twice), Dalvin Cook, Alvin Kamara, and Josh Jacobs just to name a few.
How can it get better for the Cowboys? First of all, this isn't the same team as it was in 2020. Several additions to the defensive line and linebacker position should help. Secondly, the "mastermind" behind last season's defense, Mike Nolan, is gone.
Maybe the biggest question is, "Can it acutally get any worse?" the defensive line should be better, the linebackers should be better, and the defensive ends should be better.
But is it possible for a better offense to help the defense? Let's discuss!
