DST - Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys D/ST allowed 10 points while picking up four sacks and forcing three turnovers in a 38-10 win over the Commanders in Week 18.
Dallas dominated the Commanders as they held them to just 180 yards of total offense. They were led by Dante Fowler Jr., who had 1.5 sacks. Dallas will now prepare to face the Packers in next week's playoff game.
The Cowboys D/ST forced two turnovers (two interceptions) while also recording one sack in a 20-19 Week 17 win over the Detroit Lions.
The unit was helped by a brutal officiating miscue that negated a would-be successful two-point conversion that would have given the Lions a 21-20 lead with seconds remaining. They should find much more success against a hapless Washington Commanders offense in Week 18.
The Cowboys D/ST turned in a quiet performance in Week 16, registering just one sack and failing to force a turnover in a 22-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins.
The unit was unable to make key stops late despite allowing just one touchdown on the day, culminating with a Jason Sanders game-winning field goal, his fifth of the day, as time expired Sunday. The unit will look to bounce back against a Detroit Lions offense reliant on a strong running game to set up their passing attack centered around Amon-Ra St. Brown and Sam LaPorta in Week 17.
The Cowboys' D/ST logged one sack and allowed 31 points in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Dallas' defense had perhaps their worst game of the season on Sunday, allowing 31 points while only putting up one sack in a loss to the Bills. They failed to log even a single takeaway on the day, and they didn't do their part in helping the offense to bring home a win on the road. This unit has been strong for most of the year but has tough matchups coming up against the Dolphins and Lions.
The Cowboys D/ST allowed six points on 324 total yards with one sack and three fumble recoveries Sunday night against the Eagles.
Dallas held Jalen Hurts out of the end zone all night with the lone touchdown the Cowboys scored coming off a strip sack fumble of Dak Prescott. They draw another tough matchup next week against Buffalo.
