Grades are in, and the Dallas Cowboys once again scored high marks in their Week 8 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Dallas managed to win with a backup quarterback, a feat the so often failed to do over the past few seasons when their starter went out.
The win moved the team to 6-1, as they continue to place themselves among the league’s best as the season nears its halfway mark. Dallas still has some holes though, dealing with nagging injuries and now losing a core special teams player for the rest of the year. But riding a six-game winning streak and showing no signs of slowing down, the Cowboys are very much in a good spot with plenty of football left to be played.
Here’s how the Cowboys graded out in Week 8, along with the playtime percentage breakdown.
