Shutdown Corner NFL Power Rankings: Dallas Cowboys, please rise (Shutdown Corner)

Let’s be serious for a moment here. And I have to kick the really over-the-top crazy Dallas Cowboys fans out of the room now so we can have a real conversation. OK, good. Now … what in the heck is going on in Dallas? Look, you didn’t see this coming, I didn’t see this coming, nobody did. But now there’s no getting around it: The Dallas Cowboys look good. They look great. Had Tony Romo not made some big Week 1 mistakes against the 49ers, they might be 4-0 with some quality wins. I just don’t know how we got here. The Cowboys didn’t add much in the offseason, and the defense lost Jason Hatcher, DeMarcus Ware and Sean Lee. Romo was coming off back surgery. They’ve been the epitome of mediocre for years. All of a sudden, they’re good. Logically, it makes little sense. Sunday night’s dominant win over the Saints was their statement that they’re for real. Now, “for real” comes and goes in the NFL in 2014 as quickly as Jon Gruden compliments a mundane play on “Monday Night Football.” Teams look great one week and incompetent seven days later. Nothing is permanent. But right now, the Cowboys deserve a huge bump up the rankings. Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli would be my coach of the year vote at this point. He has been that good. The Cowboys’ offense have reinvented itself by building around DeMarco Murray and a great run-blocking offensive line. They deserve all the credit you can give them. I guess that’s the beauty of the NFL. Things that are completely unforeseen can actually happen. We’re seeing it in Dallas. Here are the post-Week 4 power rankings: 32. Oakland Raiders (0-4, LW: 31) Head coach Dennis Allen got fired, and general manager Reggie McKenzie can’t be far behind. Remember, they have the oldest roster in the NFL. Bad, bad, bad. 31. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4, LW: 30) No one player is going to totally turn this team around, not even a huge upgrade at quarterback. They’re just not good at all. But they’re also very young and you’d assume they’ll improve as this season goes on. 30. Washington Redskins (1-3, LW: 28) Or maybe I was right to be skeptical of Kirk Cousins. 29. Tennessee Titans (1-3, LW: 23) How in the world did they look so good at Kansas City in Week 1? That’s the weirdest result of the NFL season so far, right?

Minnesota Vikings get pre-game inspiration from Adrian Peterson’s text (Shutdown Corner)

Adrian Peterson is persona non grata right now for the Minnesota Vikings, unable to play while sitting on the NFL’s exempt list, but he did what he could to help his teammates in Sunday’s big victory against the Atlanta Falcons. Peterson texted head coach Mike Zimmer and offered his support, per the Pioneer Press . We don’t know what Peterson said, but those words were used directly by Zimmer in his pregame speech that he gave to players. The message hit home. “The words that Adrian texted Coach Zimmer, [they were] very deep,” Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater said after their 41-28 win over the Falcons at TCF Bank Stadium. “One thing that I took away from that message was, play each down like it’s your last because you never know when it’s going to be your last opportunity. I think the guys got that message pretty well. We went out, we fought. It was just a great overall team effort.” For Bridgewater, that message hit home doubly. He was outstanding in his first NFL start, with zero turnovers, leading six scoring drives in just over three quarters. But Bridgewater came out early after spraining his left ankle, having to turn the ball over to Christian Ponder, which is akin to a Detroit Tigers starter turning the ball over to Joe Nathan with a three-run lead. Peterson’s message also rubbed off on his replacements in the backfield. Rookie Jerick McKinnon, who said that Peterson had been texting him tips before the game, had 18 rushes for 135 yards, and Matt Asiata rushing 20 times for 78 yards and three touchdowns. In the two prior games without Peterson, the Vikings rushed for a mere 113 yards with an average of 2.8 yards per carry. At least you can say that Peterson is trying to do something to earn the salary he’s still earning while sitting at home. – - – - – - – Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.
