Cowboys' 2020 Opponents, Draft Status Finalized


Just like that, the Cowboys' season is over. No playoffs and another 8-8 record.

While there will be plenty of uncertainty regarding this team, from the coaching staff to the players, some things have been finalized already.

For one, the Cowboys will have the 17th overall pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. The Cowboys, Steelers and Bears are the only teams in the NFL to finish 8-8 this year.

This will be the fifth time the Cowboys have had the 17th overall pick. Both Emmitt Smith and Mel Renfro were drafted 17th and ended up in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Also, the Cowboys' opponents are finalized as well. By finishing second in the NFC East, they will host Atlanta (NFC South) and play at Minnesota (NFC North). Both the Falcons and Vikings finished second in their respective divisions, rounding out the two open spots that were not solidified before Sunday. 

Here's the home and away opponents for Dallas in 2019:

Home:Redskins, Giants, Eagles, Cardinals, 49ers, Browns, Steelers and Falcons 

Away:Redskins, Giants, Eagles, Seahawks, Rams, Vikings, Bengals and Ravens
