It’s been an up-and-down year for the Cowboys on the field and in our arbitrary summary of weekly power rankings.
After the win over the Giants in the season opener, the Cowboys briefly moved into the Top 5, but the loss in Denver moved them out of the Top 10. The win in Arizona the next weekmoved them back into the Top 10, but the subsequent loss against the Rams moved them back out of the Top 10.
A string of victories over the 49ers, Redskins, and Chiefs moved the Cowboys close to a Top 5 ranking, but the loss against the Falcons sees them crashing out of the Top 10 again this week.
