Odds to Win the 2011 Super Bowl: Dallas Cowboys

by BigpoppaThaShowstoppa

The Dallas Cowboys' 12 to 1 odds to win the 2011 Super Bowl show that they're clearly considered major contenders, However, they'll need to make strides this season to avoid feeling major heat from their fans and front office.

Dallas didn't acquire much fresh talent in the offseason aside from drafting Dez Bryant, who may or may not be ready to contribute at the NFL level. But they'll still score plenty with Tony Romo under center and breakout star Miles Austin, not to mention reliable Jason Witten, catching passes. Felix Jones may get a chance to start on his own, though it's tough to say if his smallish build can handle that assignment.

Thanks to their offense and solid pass rush, the Cowboys should be in the NFC playoff mix again.
