The Cowboys took a step backwards defensively, struggling in the 3-4 scheme. Dallas ranked just 19th defensively and allowed 25 points per game. This led to many changes this offseason, most notable moving back to a 4-3 alignment. The Cowboys certainly have the talent to turn things around on this side of the ball. Dallas has two of the best pass-rushing ends in the game in Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware. These guys have huge sack potential but need to play more consistent than last season. The pass defense needs to be more consistent. Cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne have ability and potential but the tendency to give up the big play. They'll need to be more consistent if the defense hopes to take a step forward this season. The special teams is alright with Dwayne Harris and Lance Dunbar handling much of the return duties. These guys aren't elite at their position but capable of good things. Fantasy Outlook: This is a fantasy defense with top-five potential. The Cowboys are a good buy-low candidate. They have huge sack potential and should improve on their point and yards allowed totals from lasts season. The secondary is the big concern but could be helped if the pass rush causes all sorts of havoc, which is possible.

Dallas Cowboys LB Bruce Carter had big problems covering his opponents in the team's Week 4 loss to the San Diego Chargers, in which the team allowed QB Philip Rivers to throw for over 400 yards. LB Ernie Sims saw more time at the expense of Carter. 'We wanted to give Ernie Sims some chances to come play, particularly in that nickel package, so a combination of those two things. Bruce was also dealing with a little bit of a foot injury in the second part of that game,' head coach Jason Garrett said. 'So we mixed those two guys in, gave Ernie some chances, and we've just got to get better there. Bruce has been a good cover linebacker for us, and he'll be a good cover linebacker for us again.' Sims may remain in nickel packages over Carter starting in Week 5 against the Denver Broncos.
