The Dallas Cowboys 2015 schedule features five games in prime time with three games on NBC, they have a game on ESPN and a Thursday night game on NFL Network. The Dallas Cowboys open up the summer season on NBC’s Sunday Night Football on September 13th as they host the New York Giants. Their bye week for Cowboys is going to be early in Week 6. The Dallas Cowboys in my opinion have an easy schedule since it ranks the 24th most difficult in the NFL in 2015.
The Dallas Cowboys have an excellent overall schedule in 2015 but there are several potential trouble spots. Early season schedule won’t be easy as they have to face the New York Giants twice in the first eight weeks and likewise have games at Philadelphia and at New Orleans along with tough home games against New England and Seattle. If they lose their first home game of the season they may easily be 1-4 going onto their bye week and the worst case scenario has them 1-6 after their first seven games. What’s promising for Dallas is if they can cope with their first eight games at 4-4 or 5-3 they’ve a good schedule down the stretch.
Two times this season the Dallas Cowboys will have short rest, but both games come within 12 days as they’ve a hardcore game at Green Bay after playing in Washington on a Monday night in December and chances are they host the New York Jets on a Saturday night after playing the Packers.
