    Last time the Cowboys were this good on the road, they were the best team in the NFC.

    At 7-3 heading into their bye week, the Cowboys are again among the best teams in the conference. The success is a product of their play outside of Arlington.

    Dallas won its road game at Jacksonville by way of London on Sunday, upping their road record to 4-0. Just think if they weren’t a mediocre 3-3 at AT&T Stadium.

    Last time the Cowboys won their first four road games in a season was 2007, when they started 7-0 en route to a 13-3 regular season.

    Obviously the Jaguars are a wretched outfit and Wembley Stadium wasn’t exactly a hostile environment for Dallas, but the disparity between home and road is nonetheless head-scratching. The Cowboys are averaging 30 points per game in road games, and only 23 at home. In all three of their losses they’ve managed only 17 points in Arlington.

    Good news: Jason Garrett's squad will be healthy after the bye and their first game is on the road against a Giants’ team that’s out of the playoff race at 3-6.
