Dallas Cowboys Opponents 2024: Visit 49ers, Ravens, and Texans Come to Town

The 2024 NFL schedule hasn't been released, but everyone's opponents have been. Who are the Dallas Cowboys' 2024 opponents?

The 2024 NFL schedule hasn’t been released yet, but we do know everyone’s opponents. The Dallas Cowboys’ opponents include their usual NFC East rivals but also include some daunting AFC opponents, as well as the NFC champion on the road.

The Cowboys will face a first-place schedule in 2024 after coming out on top of their division in 2023. The schedule includes their four-year rotation with the AFC North, which will bring star power to their tough schedule.

Dallas To Face Schedule Gauntlet

In a schedule packed with big games, even in their division against the Eagles and Dan Quinn-led Commanders, the Cowboys’ toughest test may come from an entirely different conference.

With two road tests versus the Browns and Steelers, their home slate includes a slate of games that include the C.J. Stroud-led Texans, MVP-led Ravens, and Joe Burrow-led Bengals, the AFC slate may take the cake for the toughest matchups of 2024 for the team.

Despite the challenge their AFC schedule brings, their NFC slate is no walk in the park either. With a road matchup against the 49ers, as well as their customary Eagles matchup, they have home games against the Lions and Buccaneers.

The Cowboys are a good team who are fresh off winning 36 regular season games over the last three seasons, but this may be the toughest slate of games on their schedule in quite some time. A lot can change throughout an offseason, but as it stands right now, Cowboys Nation needs to buckle in for what could be a wild 2024 season.

Cowboys’ Head Coach in ‘Lame Duck’ Year

Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy enters 2024 in the last year of his contract without any assurances beyond this season. Some in this scenario may find a way to rise in the occasion, while some may feel the weight of the pressure.

Both McCarthy and the Cowboys hope this brings out the best of the team as they enter 2024 looking to make it to an NFC Championship Game for the first time in 28 years. The Cowboys have struggled when it matters most, and for that, there seem to be far more questions than answers.
