The Dallas Cowboys have had one of the NFL’s most talented teams over the last couple of years, but they have failed to get past the Divisional round of the playoffs.
They do have new hope for the 2023 season, as they have added wide receiver Brandin Cooks and cornerback Stephon Gilmore.
Still, their biggest weapon is wide receiver CeeDee Lamb, who is just starting to hit his stride.
During training camp, he made an amazing one-handed catch of a pass that almost got away from him, via PFF.

Lamb had his best season yet in 2022, posting 1,359 yards and nine touchdowns, both of which were career highs, while getting his second straight Pro Bowl nod.
After Amari Cooper departed for the Cleveland Browns last offseason, Lamb has become Dallas’ No. 1 option on offense.
The addition of Cooks, who has surpassed the 1,000-yard mark six times in his nine-year career, should take a good amount of pressure off Lamb and possibly free him up a little more.
But ultimately, how far the Cowboys go in the playoffs will rest on how well quarterback Dak Prescott plays.
He is a solid signal-caller who has made two Pro Bowls, but he has been criticized for not raising his game when the stakes are high.
In last season’s Divisional round against the rival San Francisco 49ers, Prescott threw two interceptions and just one touchdown pass in Dallas’ 19-12 loss.
During the regular season, he led the league with 15 interceptions, and his 91.1 passer rating was the second-lowest of his career.NEXT: Jerry Jones Gets Brutally Honest On Dak Prescott Expectations
