The Dallas Cowboys last season were a surprise of sorts, they missed the playoffs the year before, but this year they redeemed themselves, improving from a 9-7 record the year before to a 10-6 record. This was enough to win the NFC East and get a birth into the playoffs, where they managed to win a game against the Seahawks, and then lose in the NFC Divisional Playoff game to the eventual Super Bowl participant Los Angeles Rams. During the season, they traded their first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders for WR Amari Cooper.
The 2018 season was like night and day for the Dallas Cowboys. After starting the season 3-4, the Cowboys traded for Oakland Raiders’ wide receiver Amari Cooper and the whole season turned around. With Cooper on the roster, the Cowboys won seven of their last nine games and took home the NFC East title for the second time in three years. After winning their home playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks, 24-22, the Cowboys lost to the Los Angeles Rams 30-22 in the divisional round.
