Grading Dallas Cowboys' Positional Units at the 1st-Quarter Mark

Through the first quarter of the 2013 season, the Dallas Cowboys have been an average team in just about every sense of the word. They have a 2-2 record, of course, ranking ninth in points and 11th in points allowed. They’ve witnessed just about every type of game thus far: a win they shouldn’t have won (Giants), a close defeat (Chiefs), a blowout victory (Rams) and a two-score loss (Chargers).

Through all of that, the Cowboys have gotten a lot of help around the division. They’re the only division leader with a 2-2 record, and they actually don’t even have to share that title with anyone else; the Cowboys are a game up on the Eagles and Redskins and two games up on the Giants.

Having said that, the Cowboys have a lot of players who will need to perform better moving forward if they want to maintain their lead. Let’s take a look at the Cowboys’ positional grades through Week 4.

The methodology used to obtain each grade is primarily a stat comparison between each position with others around the NFL at that position. There’s always some subjectivity too, but sticking to the numbers allows for a more objective assessment.
