Teams undergoing a coaching change and system shift are at a disadvantage this offseason, and the transition could be even more seismic if quarterback Dak Prescott chooses to play hide-and-seek over his contract demands. The NFC East shouldn’t be too tough — we’re not buying the Giants or Redskins as contenders, yet — but drawing the NFC West plus the Minnesota Vikings and Baltimore Ravens doesn’t set up coach Mike McCarthy for smooth sailing.

Upset watch: Going to Cincinnati sets up as a risky trip for the Cowboys in what is the first meeting between the teams since 2016 and Dallas’ first trip to play the Bengals since 2012.

Longshot wager: PointsBet has the Cowboys at +200 to miss the playoffs, and we need flip back only a few months to realize this is beyond plausible. The schedule isn’t kind to the Cowboys, and an offseason of uncertain could be a stormy brew leading to a slow start for a team with a recent history of bombing in December.
