Dallas Cowboys NFL's Best In Week 1; Carolina Panthers the Worst

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Aug 28, 2013



The following information comes from the NFL.

The Dallas Cowboys remain the NFL's best team on opening day, powered largely by a record streak of 17 straight Week 1 wins from 1965 to 1981.

Dallas has gone an impressive 35-17-1 (.673) out of the gate, dating back to the franchise's founding in 1960. Tony Romo's recent vintage Cowboys are 4-2 in Week 1 games in which the productive but controversial quarterback has started.

The Denver Broncos are the best of the AFC, with a Week 1 record of 33-19-1.

The NFC in general struggles in Week 1, as six of the seven worst teams in Week 1 come out of the NFL's senior circuit: Philadelphia Eagles, Arizona Cardinals, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers.

The sad-sack Buffalo Bills are the worst of the AFC in Week 1 action, with a record of 21-32 (.396).
