If recent practices are any indication, the Dallas Cowboys have another NFC East title in the bag.
Fresh off a 12-4 season, the Cowboys have their sights set on a deep playoff run. Apparently the team is doing everything it can to get better, as evidenced by a rather interesting training mechanism it employed on the wide receivers and tight ends during Tuesday’s training camp session.

Yes, that’s Jason Witten, and yes, he’s wearing a laundry bag — OK, a “vision-obscuring hood” — on his head.
We’d imagine this is a pretty effective drill, because if you can catch a football with a bag over your head, chances are you’ll do the same with a clear field of vision. A photo taken at last year’s camp suggests this isn’t the first time they’ve tried the drill, either.[tweet https://twitter.com/JOBIE__1/status/495252778827395072 align=’center’]
We also have video proof of another fun exercise Dallas’ pass-catchers participated in earlier this summer. [tweet https://twitter.com/toddarcher/status/627276537750945792 align=’center’]
Gotta love training camp.
