When was the last time the Dallas Cowboys won a postseason game on the road?
The Dallas Cowboys will begin the next phase of their campaign to win the Lombardi trophy which has eluded them since their last Super Bowl victory in 1995.
The Dallas Cowboys are making a playoff appearance for the second year in a row, and they will be trying to redeem themselves from their disappointing loss to the San Francisco 49ers at home in the Wild Card Round last year.
Off to face the NFC South champs
They will be traveling to Tampa Bay to face Tom Brady and the Buccaneers at the Raymond James Stadium on Monday Night Football. The Cowboys ended the regular season with a record of 12-5, much better than that of the NFC South champions, which stands at 8-9.
However, one factor that could work in the hosts’ favor is that their quarterback has a flawless all-time record against Dallas. He has won all seven games that he has played against America’s Team prior to their Wild Card meeting. The Buccaneers have also won their last two matchups, including their Week 1 opener which saw quarterback Dak Prescott’s thumb being injured, causing him to lose five games.
The last time the Dallas Cowboys won a postseason game on the road
Another detail that bears examination is the Cowboys’ record of postseason wins on the road. The last time that they won in an away playoff game was 30 years ago. Since they beat the San Francisco 49ers in 1992, they have lost all eight of their postseason games, which is also the longest active string of playoff defeats second only to the Detroit Lions’ 11. In the 2022 regular season, Dallas had a 4-4 tally on the road.
The Cowboys’ weapons
While these points seem to stack up against the Cowboys, they do have things going for them. Their explosive offensive is one of the best in the league, and they’ve scored an average of 35.1 points per game since they got Prescott back. They are also ranked seventh in scoring defense.
Perhaps the Cowboys’ strengths will be enough to finally put an end to Brady’s perfect record, as well as to their streak of losses in the NFL playoffs.
