Now that the NFL season is getting closer and closer, the power rankings are starting to come out. According to the average of all 32 NFL team blogs on the SB Nation network the Dallas Cowboys are ranked in No. 15 in the overall rankings published by SB Nation.
Blogging the Boys, the Dallas Cowboys blog on SB Nation states that while the defense has improved, the Cowboys have to hope now that their offensive line will holdup under the punishment of a full season. That could be the difference in the Cowboys possibly winning the the NFC East or missing the playoffs yet again.
The Cowboys suffered from a secondary that was shredded at critical points in games last season. Injuries and a skill-set that didn't match Rob Ryan's defensive scheme were definite problems. 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? At most other positions, they have the quality to compete with the rest of the league.
