Dallas Cowboys legend and three-time Super Bowl champion Michael Irvin has given his thoughts on how many games his former team will win in 2022. The NFL releases the full 2022 season schedule on Thursday, May 12, and for Team America, there’s some tantalizing play in the game. horizon.
Irvin was on the NFL Network and asked how many games Dallas will win in 2022 after looking at their schedule. The 56-year-old is adamant that Dallas will match their 12-win tally from last season, possibly one more.
“12 years ago and I think I predicted it was right on the button and I think they’ll come right back and hit 12 again, give me a baker dozen.”
Dallas has not had an 11-game winning season since the days of Irvin, Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith. Can they do it again in 2022?
How will the Dallas Cowboys fare in 2022?
The Dallas Cowboys had a fine season last year, winning 12 of their 17 games but were dropped from the playoffs by the San Francisco 49ers. With their full schedule now, we can see who they will be playing and when and where.
Looking at their schedule, there must be some tough matches. Opening with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home is a tough way to start the year. Dallas also played the Cincinnati Bengals, Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts, and Tennessee Titans in a rather tough game.
After losing Amari Cooper to the Cleveland Browns and Randy Gregory to the Denver Broncos, along with Cedric Wilson and La’el Collins, the Cowboys will be a bit weaker.
But that didn’t stop Irvin from saying that Dallas could win 12 games this season. Being at NFC East, many thought the Cowboys would win the division again this season, which would guarantee them an automatic spot in the postseason.
Looking at their schedule, Dallas should win at least 10 games, if not more, but as with their ability to hit and miss, nothing can be a certainty.
There are some blockbuster matches too. The Packers, Rams, Buccaneers, and Bengals games all have a playoff feel to them, not to mention the Titans.
Exactly where Team America will finish in 2022 is the subject of much discussion, but based on their play, they should have won just as much as they did in 2021.
