The road to the Super Bowl is never easy. For some teams, the path is even more treacherous than it is for others. Yet, in the NFL, there’s often more standing in the way of a franchise and its ultimate goal than just a difficult opponent. Before it even takes the field of battle, a team must conquer the hardest adversary of them all — itself.

Unfortunately, no matter how well this team starts — which could actually prove to be difficult in 2017 if the recent suspension to star running back Ezekiel Elliott holds up — it’s been ages since the Cowboys managed to finish the year on a high note.
In fact, it feels like the Dallas Cowboys are stuck in a terrible loop that, ultimately, ends in disappointment. See for yourself. These are the 10 stages of a Dallas Cowboys football season.
