NFL Power Rankings 2012: Cowboys Ranked As 'Contenders' In NFL.com Rankings

The Dallas Cowboys rank as contenders, according to preseason power rankings from NFL.com:

The quarterbacks get the blame in Chicago and Dallas, but Tony Romo and Jay Cutler are good enough to win titles if the rest of the team steps up.

That ranking isn't far from where they were placed by SB Nation in their power rankings. SB Nation's Cowboys blog Blogging the Boys pointed a big question mark for the season:

The secondary has received a big upgrade in the 2012 offseason leaving the Cowboys with one major question - can the interior offensive line hold up?

Strong play at that position would certainly help Tony Romo perform to the best of his ability, which is obviously a key to the Cowboys success. After several years of being just on the bubble, a strong effort in Dallas could see them rise to the top.
