While the Dallas Cowboys have both endured losses this offseason, and made some promising additions to their roster, fans appear unanimously excited about the outlook of the team's 2020 season.

Last week when the NFL schedules were released, it was revealed one interesting NFL record would be possible for the Cowboys to set this season.

No team in NFL history has ever beaten all five teams that are named after various birds in the same year. The Cowboys do indeed play the Falcons (Week 2), Seahawks (Week 3), Cardinals (Week 6), Eagles (Weeks 8 & 16) and the Ravens (Week 13).

It is quite the odd feat to aspire to, but anytime you can achieve something no one in the NFL has, it'll be an interesting storyline to follow.

That being said, pulling this off will be no easy feat. Three of those teams come into the season with top-eight Super Bowl odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. That includes the Ravens, who have the second-best odds to win it all, trailing only the defending champion Kansas City Chiefs.
