The Dallas Cowboys have always been one of the most popular teams to use in Madden games.  That won’t change in Madden 16.  They have a great offense and improved the defense significantly though the draft.

Below you can find the Dallas Cowboys team breakdown in Madden NFL 16

Team: Dallas Cowboys

Offensive Strategy: Balance.  You have a great quarterback, a good running back, a great wide receiver, a great tight end, and arguably the best offensive line in Madden NFL 16.  You should stay as balanced as you possibly can with the Cowboys.  If you become one dimensional, it makes your offense much easier for the other team to defend.

Defensive Strategy: Get a few stops.  You don’t need to do too much with the Cowboys defense in Madden 16.  If you can get a stop and 1 turnover each game then you should have no trouble winning games provided that you aren’t terrible on offense.

Impact Players: QB Tony Romo, HB Darren McFadden, WR Dez Bryant, WR Terrance Williams, TE Jason Witten, LT Tyron Smith, RE Greg Hardy, ROLB Sean Lee, CB Orlando Scandrick, CB Byron Jones

Key Newcomers: HB Darren McFadden, RE Randy Gregory, CB Byron Jones, Greg Hardy

Strengths: Offense.  We covered this above but the Cowboys really do have an exceptional offense.  Tony Romo is mobile enough to make the defense think about his scrambling ability but he has the passing ratings to make all of the throws on the field. Dez Bryant is the 2nd most dangerous receiver in Madden 16 only to Calvin Johnson.  Jason Witten just always seems to be open.  And the offensive line should create plenty of big holes in the running game.

Weaknesses: Big hitters over the middle.  Sean Lee is one of the best user linebackers in Madden but he is much better as a coverage linebacker than as someone who forces fumbles routinely.  The Cowboys don’t have that one guy who makes you scared to go over the middle.

Overview: The Cowboys are a top team heading into Madden 16.  They improved their defense through the draft and the offense is always extremely dangerous.
