As usual, there will be all sorts of pressure on the Cowboys to succeed in 2012–especially with Tony Romo returning at quarterback. This team will be heavily tested once again not just because they play in the NFC East, but their opponents outside the division as well. How far this team will go this season relies heavily on what level Romo plays at and considering the weapons he has on offense–there’s no excuse for him not to be anything but successful.
Unfortunately for Dallas though, the rotating schedule has them matched up against the AFC North for 2012–which sent three teams to the postseason last year between the Bengals, Steelers, and Ravens.
