Do the Dallas Cowboys have a defense? Well, it’s a small sample size but a unit that was historically bad in 2020 by giving up a franchise-record 473 points and finishing 31st against the run has done quite the turnaround so far this season.
Through three games, the Cowboys have forced the most turnovers (8) in the league and are sixth against the run (70.3 yards per game). They’ve done most of this with key guys out due to injury or having to go through COVID protocols. What’s more impressive is that the Cowboys’ defense is being led by several youngsters who are showing that they’re already forces to be reckoned with. With the Carolina Panthers coming to town and a bit hobbled on offense themselves, it will be yet another opportunity for these players to prove they’re ready for big-time NFL action in their young careers.
