Aaron Rodgers' torn Achilles tendon gave the New York Jets cause to be optimistic after the injury. Even after losing
their star quarterback just a few plays into the season, they were able to come out on top and defeat a team that was in the race for the Super Bowl.
The Jets then faced the Dallas Cowboys, the only team in the NFL that has appeared to start the season in a completely dominating fashion.
With their 30-10 victory on Sunday, the Cowboys have already outscored their opponents by a total of 60 points in the first two weeks of the season
This point differential is twice that of the squad currently in second place. Dallas' victory was its second consecutive
defeat of its opponent, following a 40-0 thrashing of the New York Giants in the season opener.
The Cowboys' performance should come as no surprise given that they won 12 games in each of the previous two seasons
One of the reasons it is so surprising that they made such a substantial move during the offseason is because they had been so successful in recent years.
They did this to take the next step toward winning the iconic franchise's first Super Bowl in over three decades.
