Dallas Cowboys 2024 NFL Season Win/Loss Total

By Jeff Stinger

The Dallas Cowboys have won 12 games in each of the past three NFL seasons but haven’t returned to the NFC title game since the 1995 season, the last time the Cowboys won the Super Bowl. There could be a lot of changes next offseason if the Boys come up short again in 2024 – although owner Jerry Jones certainly won’t fire himself as GM.

Dallas has the 12th-toughest schedule in the league this year, as the Cowboys’ opponents had a combined .505 winning percentage in 2023. They are 1-point underdogs for Week 1 in Cleveland. The Browns last hosted the Cowboys in Cleveland in 2016, when they lost to Dallas 35-10. The Browns have played the Cowboys 32 times since 1960 in franchise history, including three postseason games in the 1960s. Cleveland leads the overall series 18-14.

The Cowboys then have two tough home games vs. New Orleans and Baltimore. The annual home Thanksgiving game is vs. the Giants. The November and December stretch of the season will see the Cowboys take on just three playoff opponents.

A Pretty Solid 2023

Thanks in large part to a dominant unbeaten mark at home, the Cowboys finished the 2023 regular season at 12-5 and won the NFC East by a game over Philadelphia. Because of how good Dallas was at home, winning the division was considered vital, as the Cowboys got a wild card game at AT&T Stadium. However, they were upset 48-32 by Green Bay – Dallas coach Mike McCarthy’s former team, which made it even more painful.

It was the Cowboys’ first home loss since the 2022 opener, as they had won 16 straight games at AT&T Stadium. Dallas didn’t trail by more than eight points at AT&T Stadium all the 2023 season before falling behind 27-0 in the first half against Green Bay. The 48 points allowed overall were the most ever by the Cowboys in a playoff game.

There was some talk that Jones was going to fire McCarthy after that defeat, but he gets one more chance. He has a 42-25 record in his four years as Cowboys head coach, including three straight 12-win seasons. However, Dallas has struggled in the playoffs during his time in Texas, losing three times and winning just once in the postseason.

“I believe this team is very close and capable of achieving our ultimate goals, and the best step forward for us will be with Mike McCarthy as our head coach,” Jones said of keeping him. “There is great benefit to continuing the team’s progress under Mike’s leadership as our head coach.”

Will There Be Changes Within the Team?

Dallas still has not signed either QB Dak Prescott or star WR CeeDee Lamb to long-term extensions, and risks losing one or both after this season — although the Cowboys could slap the franchise tag on one of the two. Prescott reportedly wants an NFL-record $60 million per season after coming off a career year. He finished second behind Lamar Jackson for NFL MVP and had career highs in completion percentage (69.5) and quarterback rating (105.9) while leading the league in touchdowns. The career season coincided with McCarthy taking over as play-caller in 2023 which helped maximize Prescott’s mobility while also making it easier to find open receivers in a “Texas Coast” offensive system.

Jones believes Prescott can be even better this year: “[Prescott] can play better than he has maybe, we could argue one of the best years he’s ever had in his career. But the good news is, I’m convinced that he can play better, and I’m convinced that we can do some things better all the way around, and so we’re all in.”

Prescott should still show up at training camp, which opens on July 25, but Lamb is expected to skip the start of camp without a new deal. Lamb is due close to $18 million in 2024 under the fifth-year option on his rookie deal, but he’s scheduled to hit free agency following the season. He could conceivably command at least $30 million per year on a new deal. A two-time All-Pro honoree, Lamb logged a career-high 135 catches for 1,749 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2024, serving as a centerpiece of the Cowboys’ offense.

Defensively, the team did lose highly regarded coordinator Dan Quinn as he took the head coaching job with division rival Washington. Quinn was replaced as DC by former Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. The 67-year-old was also a Cowboys assistant coach from 1994 to 2006, starting as a defensive assistant, moving to defensive backs in 1995 — the last season for which Dallas won a Super Bowl — and serving as the coordinator from 2000 to 2006 under two different head coaches, Dave Campo (2000-02) and Bill Parcells (2003-06).

The Cowboys were largely quiet in free agency as their biggest moves were for cornerback Jourdan Lewis, linebacker Eric Kendricks and running Ezekiel Elliott, each getting less than $3 million in fully guaranteed money.
