The Dallas Cowboys franchise is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.
After three consecutive 8-8 seasons, this team has come out of the gate firing on all cylinders (save for the week one debacle against the Niners).
This weekend’s 30-23 victory over Seattle does more than just send the team to 5-1, the win sends a statement to the rest of the NFC that this team is for real. If you didn’t believe it before, it’s hard to doubt that Dallas is a now a legitimate Super Bowl contender.
DeMarco Murray rushed for 115 yards against the NFL’s #1 ranked rushing defense heading into the game. He’s now tallied 100 yards in six straight games and doesn’t appear to be showing any signs of slowing.

Russell Wilson had one of the worst performances of his career, completing just 14 of 28 passes for 126 yards, no touchdowns and an interception that ended his team’s come-from-behind bid.
It’s just the second time Wilson’s ever lost playing at home.
I will do whatever it takes to get us back on the right track. And I know my teammates will too. #GreaterIsComing

At 3-2 the Hawks have dropped back out of first place in the NFC West, while Dallas still remains tied with Philly atop the NFC East after the Eagles ended New York’s hot streak with a 27-0 shellacking of the Giants.
