Should the Cowboys be considered the NFC East favorite in 2019?

Jon Machota, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answers your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Here are the highlights:Other than DeMarcus Lawrence, which of their free agents should the Cowboys place the most priority on re-signing?Machota: For me, I'd rank the top 5 as DeMarcus Lawrence, Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, Ezekiel Elliott and Byron Jones. Zeke is their most valuable player, but he's under contract through 2019 and actually 2020 because they would certainly pick up his fifth-year option.Do you think Travis Frederick will be able to...

He can still be a quality player, but I think he feels stifled by the season and he has no confidence that...

These two players must step up for the Cowboys to beat the Seahawks

Matt Mosley, special contributor to SportsDayDFW.com, answered questions in a recent live chat. Here are some highlights.Q: Who needs to step up for Dallas the most and have a good game vs. Seattle?Mosley: This is a game where you have to put a ton of pressure on Russell Wilson. He can obviously extend plays with his legs, but he's taken a lot of sacks over his career. This feels like a game where DeMarcus Lawrence and Randy Gregory need to shine. Mike Solari has done a nice job with the Seattle offensive line, but the Cowboys should still be able to get home at times. I think putting Wilson...

Seahawks-Cowboys and what to watch for: Germain Ifedi against Demarcus Lawrence

When the Seattle Seahawks take on the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday in the NFC Wild Card game, one of the most watched matchups will be Dallas defensive end Demarcus Lawrence facing off against Seattle right tackle Germain Ifedi. Ifedi, who as many young offensive linemen do, struggled early in his career as he learned to use actual technique for the first time in his career, while also adjusting to the speed of the NFL game. At times it was, in a word, ugly, but as he has continued to gain experience and his use of technique has become more fluid, his play has improved. He’ll have a chance...
