Three obstacles to a Dallas Cowboys title run

The Pittsburgh Steelers and , whose Sunday clash highlights the Week 10 schedule, have had some of the best teams in history — and have been responsible for arguably two of the most impressive dynastic runs, from the Steelers’ four Super Bowls in the 1970s to the Cowboys’ three titles in four years in the early 1990s.

Making their case in the current day are the Bill Belichick-led Patriots, who have consistently been a top AFC team — winning four of six Super Bowl appearances — since the turn of the century. Reflecting on some of the greatest teams to ever play, which is the best dynasty in NFL history?

Dallas has aced every possible regular-season test. They’ve won shootouts against high-flying offenses like the Steelers and cheap jerseys and Redskins. They’ve completed comebacks against strong defenses like the Eagles and Ravens. The Cowboys even showed Thursday night they could win a defensive battle on the road in Minnesota, a rare game where their power-packed offense lacked electricity.

Securing the No. 1 seed in the NFC is a matter of when, not if. A chance to avenge the team’s only loss thus far next week at could be the last truly meaningful game the Cowboys play until mid-January. In the meantime, the Fighting Daks will adjust to their new role. With December here, they have transformed from the season’s best story to favorites for the Super Bowl. Now comes the hard part.

With playing at a higher level than any rookie quarterback in NFL history — on pace for the highest passer rating for a rookie at 103.9 — the Cowboys will continue to bring Romo back slowly. In fact, Prescott is expected to start the next two games for the Cowboys, a source with knowledge of the team’s plans told Rapoport.jerseys

The Cowboys’ brass insisted at the start of the season that it was Romo’s team when he returns. Prescott’s play has led to a softer stance on the matter.

“The Cowboys really don’t know,” Rapoport said when asked when Romo might return. “But it is important to note what actually happened in practice this week. I’m told it is merely a good start for Romo. He has not even taken real team reps yet, and until he does that, he’s not even in consideration to be — forget about the starter — even the backup. So it certainly seems like the Cowboys are a little ways away from getting Romo on the field. Meanwhile, it seems like they are inclined to ride the hot hand, which means as long as Dak Prescott succeeds, expect him to stay in there.”

Bright lights are nothing new for Rayne Dakota Prescott. He led Haughton (La.) High School to a district championship as a junior, sealing the title game by driving his team 80 yards in 47 seconds, without using a timeout. As a senior, he led his high school to its first ever undefeated season and another district title. Playing with a torn MCL in the championship game and unable to run, Prescott saved his best for last, throwing for 366 yards with three touchdowns with dozens of college recruiters watching from the stands.

At Mississippi State, he was a three-year starter in the nation’s toughest conference. In 2014, he led the Bulldogs to nine straight victories to open the season, including three in a row over top-10 opponents that led to the school’s very first No. 1 ranking. He won 20 games in his final two years in Starkville, setting nearly every school passing record along the way. Currently he sits third on the SEC’s all-time list for passing yards and fourth in total touchdowns.
