The Cowboys linebacker group looked pretty solid during the offseason. Sean Lee is one of the best linebackers in the league and arguably the best 4-3 outside linebacker. Anthony Hitchens is a solid contributor who has now been starting for the Cowboys for a majority of his career. He still has...

The NFL has way, way too many games decided in the fourth quarter to feel good about predicting any team's record.....except maybe 12-4 for New England."Considering the Damien Wilson arrest and Jaylon Smith mystery,...
