Nothing about the 2020 NFL season will be conventional. From no fans in most stadiums to all new protocols, and even some crazy training methods. we thought we had seen it all until 2020 arrived.

With almost no offseason activities, a limited training camp and zero preseason games, the Dallas Cowboys are taking a different approach than they usually would heading into Week 1 of the season.

Heralded as arguably the most talented offense in the NFL, the Cowboys have to deliver in 2020. In an effort to seemingly avoid any injuries before the games start to count, the Cowboys aren't doing any tackling to the ground in practice.

It's certainly not ideal, and there's no way to predict how this will effect the team in Week 1, but then again, in 2020, you've got to be thinking outside the box.
