Cowboys' Team Rankings Remain Largely Unchanged

The Cowboys had a better defensive performance last week, but it did not help the team in terms of the defensive rankings. The Cowboys still have the 22nd
ranked defense in terms of total yards, while the offense is still ranked second in total yards per game.

Tony Romo’s performance against Atlanta resulted in his passer rating increasing from 86.5 to 94.7, which was significant. The team’s (i.e., Romo’s)
rating was ranked 17th last week, the current rating is ranked 10th.
