The 2019 Dallas Cowboys season has officially come to a close and it’s hard to imagine that anybody will really miss it. The last few months have been exciting, terrifying, uplifting, and exhausting; however, the marathon is over and it is officially time to rest. Not really, though.
We can certainly expect to see plenty of changes to the Dallas Cowboys over the offseason and those will take a while, but they will all ultimately end in one thing... the 2020 season.
We now know exactly who and where the Cowboys will play in 2020. While the dates won’t be known until April, we can at least lock in the opponents. Here they are.
The Cowboys are scheduled to play the NFC West and AFC North in 2020 which is why you see those eight teams among the traditional NFC East rivals. As Dallas hosted Seattle, Los Angeles, Baltimore, and Cincinnati last time they played those divisions they will travel to those venues and host the opposite teams from those divisions.
As you are likely aware 14 of each team’s games for every season are known for all of time due to the NFL’s rotating schedule formula. The final two games are determined by the place that a team finishes in their own division and they play the two teams from the divisions in their conference (excluding the one division they will already be playing as a whole) that finished in the same place as them. For the second-place Dallas Cowboys that means that they will take on the Atlanta Falcons (home) and Minnesota Vikings (away).
Welcome to the offseason.
