CowBuzz: Cowboys Make Big Jumps in Week 4 NFL Power Rankings

The Cowboys improved to 2-1 on the season after a 31-17 victory over the Bears in primetime Sunday night at AT&T Stadium. The rookies had standout performances during the win. Dak went 19-of-24 for 248 yards and threw his first NFL touchdown to Dez Bryant. Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 140 yards on 30 attempts, giving him his first 100-yard game. The victory gave the Cowboys their first back-to-back wins since Sept. 20, 2016 when they beat the Eagles 20-10. With all that in mind, the Cowboys did enough to move up in the Week 4 NFL power rankings.

The Cowboys have steadily moved up the power rankings throughout the first four weeks but made the biggest jump this week from No. 13 to No.10:

With Elliott's breakout performance that was capped off with his #ZekeLeap in the fourth quarter and Prescott's continued improvement, the Cowboys are making progress the first month of the season.
