The Dallas Cowboys will be relying on their offense once again in 2014. With a terrific offensive line and a bunch of weapons, the Cowboys will likely send a couple of players to the Pro Bowl. On the defensive side of the ball, the Cowboys look a little shaky and there are still plenty of questions. Here are five Cowboys who could make the Pro Bowl in 2014.
Barry Church is a tackling machine. Last season, Church broke out and established himself as one of the leaders on this football team. Church had over 130 tackles and there is no reason why he shouldn't have around the same amount this year. Church is always around the ball at the end of plays and it shouldn't come as a surprise if he makes the Pro Bowl.
Tyron Smith is quickly and silently becoming one of the league's best left tackles. The Cowboys awarded Smith's play with a huge contract extension. Smith is athletic and strong enough to hold it down on the blindside. Smith is so good that he makes the guard next to him better. Smith is a Pro Bowl type of player, but he will need to beat out other prominent left tackles.
The offense Tony Romo has in front of him is the best he has ever had to work with in his nine-year career with the Cowboys. With a stellar offensive line and weapons like Dez Bryant, Jason Witten and Cole Beasley around him, it wouldn't surprise me at all if Romo threw for over 5,000 yards. This team will go as far as Romo takes them.
DeMarco Murray is entering his contract year and there is a feeling going around in Valley Ranch that he is finally over his injury issues. That should be music to Cowboy fan's ears because he is the x-factor of this offense. Murray is a contributor in and out of the backfield and play-caller Scott Linehan has already said that Murray will see his fair share of carries. Murray is in for a big year in 2014.
Well this one was pretty obvious, right? Dez Bryant is arguably the best receiver in the NFL not named Calvin Johnson. Bryant proved in the 2013 season that his 2012 season was no fluke. Last season, Bryant consistently faced double teams and he did a good job adjusting to that. Bryant is a leader on this team and he knows that. Romo's favorite weapon is No. 88 and this relationship needs to be a good one for the Cowboys to score points.
