The Dallas Cowboys thought that the 2021 season would be a successful campaign.
They blitzed through the regular season with a 12-5 record, enough to claim the third seed in the NFC playoffs.
However, the San Francisco 49ers had other plans.
Their defense limited the home team to 17 points, leading to an early postseason exit.
The Cowboys had the weapons to make a deep playoff run.
But the 2022 Cowboys have a different look with Cooper joining the Cleveland Browns.
Cedrick Wilson also signed with the Miami Dolphins.
Yet if fate would have its way, the Cowboys will lift the Vince Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl LVII.
The Dallas Cowboys won the Super Bowl during Troy Aikman’s seventh season in the NFL. That game was played in Arizona.
The Super Bowl this season is in Arizona.
Dak Prescott is entering his seventh season in the NFL.

Aikman and the Cowboys defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona.
But their victory wasn’t driven by coincidences or numerology because they were one of the best teams that year.
They won the NFC East with a 12-4 mark and blitzed through the playoffs.
Cowboys Will Have Uphill Climb To Win The Super Bowl
Maybe the football gods will let the Cowboys win it all in 2022.
But that’s easier said than done because they are not even the best team in the NFC, let alone in their division.
The Philadelphia Eagles had massive upgrades this offseason to improve on both sides of the ball.
Then there’s the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who have Tom Brady back and the New Orleans Saints who revamped their defense.
The Los Angeles Rams also has a roster capable of defending their title.
Therefore, it’s difficult to see the Cowboys surpassing these teams.
