The Dallas Cowboys have been very active since the end of the 2019 season, starting with the hiring of Mike McCarthy as their new head coach. After retaining their top offensive players and signing some marquee defensive free agents, the Cowboys have high expectations for 2020.

The latest betting odds suggest it’s more likely than not that Dallas will make the playoffs. FanDuel Sportsbook gives the Cowboys -190 postseason odds. Dallas has +156 odds to miss the postseason.

With an 8-8 record, the Cowboys missed last season’s playoffs, finishing a game behind the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East. Dallas won the NFC East in 2016 and 2018.

The 2015 season marked the only time in the last nine years that the Cowboys had a losing record.

Dak Prescott has started every game under center since Dallas selected him in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The quarterback has a 40-24 regular-season record with one playoff win. He finished second in the NFL with 4,902 passing yards last year, leading the league’s No.1 ranked offense.

The Cowboys used the franchise tag on Prescott to prevent him from officially becoming a free agent. The two sides have until July 15 to reach a long-term agreement. The signal caller is reportedly looking to make close to $35 million per season. 

Amari Cooper signed a five-year, $100 million contract with Dallas shortly after he hit the open market. Cooper was Prescott’s top target last season with 79 catches, 1,189 yards and eight touchdowns.

No wide receiver has more touchdown receptions than Cooper since he was traded to the Cowboys in October 2018.

Cornerback Byron Jones and defensive end Robert Quinn left Dallas in free agency. The Cowboys have signed defensive tackles Gerald McCoy and Dontari Poe.

Dallas ranked ninth in total defense in 2019.
