Cowboys Top List of NFL's Elite Teams

Joshua GarveyContributor ISeptember 23, 2008

 

#1) Dallas Cowboys (3-0)

  • If Tony Romo can keep making the big plays at the right times and minimize his mistakes the Cowboys will be tough even with their sometimes "soft" defense.

 

#2) New York Giants (3-0)

  • Probably would be number one if they didn't need overtime to beat the lowly Bengals. Defense hasn't lost a beat without Strahan.

 

#3) Green Bay Packers (2-1)

  • Aaron Rodgers looks good. Defense stopped T.O. but the Cowboys offense is really clicking right now even without him.

 

#4) Tennessee Titans (3-0)

  • Kerry Collins is showing why he is still in the league. The Defense is leading the league allowing only 9.7/points per game.

 

#5) Philadelphia Eagles (2-1)

  • McNabb is back and if he stays healthy along with Westbrook the NFC East will be sending 3 teams to the playoffs again.

 

#6) Buffalo Bills (3-0)

  • Defense is playing great especially stopping the run. Trent Edwards is becoming a 4th quarter magician. Would be higher if they didn't need a last second field goal to beat Oakland.

 

#7) Baltimore Ravens (2-0)

  • Defense looks amazing despite its age. Joe Flacco is maturing with the help of a solid running game.

 

#8) Denver Broncos (3-0)

  • Team needs to learn how to play better defense and hold a lead. Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall are very dangerous but the defense needs to play better to be a solid AFC team.

 

#9) Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1)

  • Only loss coming to Philadelphia in a low scoring affair. If Ben Roethlisberger can get steady protection from the front line the team will only get better.

 

#10) San Diego Chargers (1-2)

  • Phillip Rivers and the offense are looking good. Team would be 2-1 if it weren't for Jay Cutler's "incomplete" pass. Defense needs to get it together without Merriman.
