Dallas Cowboys: How good can the defense be?

The Dallas Cowboys spent much of the 2014 season trying to prove that they had overcome the punchline their 2013 defense had become. While no one will remember the 2014 unit as a dominant one, they did bring themselves back to respectability. The Cowboys offense was clearly the strength of the team, but the defense always managed to do enough to help the team win. After a year of...

It is now or never for Dallas Cowboys’ cornerback Morris Claiborne.
