Injuries have been one of the biggest stories for the Dallas Cowboys.
Offensively, defensively and on special teams the Cowboys have dealt with a laundry list of injuries.
That number only grew in Sunday’s 30-16 victory over the Green Bay Packers as safety Barry Church and cornerback Morris Claiborne each sustained injuries.
But you know what? The Cowboys are still 5-1 and have a great mix of offense and defense.
On offense, the Cowboys have a rookie quarterback and running back that rely on a dominant offensive line. The defense has been good, not great, and makes the key plays. Over the past two weeks Dallas has started strong on defense and limited the Cincinnati Bengals and Packers to 6 combined points in the first half.
On Sunday, like last week, a late touchdown was too little, too late for the opposition.
No matter who you give credit to, you can’t deny that Dallas’ ability to fill holes created by injuries has been the key to a 5-1 start.
And the best thing about it? The Cowboys have a bye next weekend to get healthier before playing the Philadelphia Eagles. The rest of the NFC East, heck the NFL, might want to watch out.
