The 2015 NFL season can be considered an absolute disaster for the Dallas Cowboys.
Tony Romo and Dez Bryant both picking up injuries in week two derailed the Cowboys season massively, from which they have failed to recover.
And things got even worse in Dallas' loss to the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night, with Romo suffering a season-ending injury to his shoulder.

Romo had already missed seven games this campaign with a broken clavicle, before returning and breaking that same clavicle in just his second game back. However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn't believe that the team unfairly pushed him back into playing too soon.
“I don’t think push is the word for it,” Jones reportedly said, via ProFootballTalk. “We felt the risk was worth the potential for having him be the impact he can be and really having a fairytale turnaround and doing something that was special."
"And to me, that’s what we’re about, that’s what sports is about. You shouldn’t ever quit trying to do something extraordinary."
Jones went on to add that the Cowboys were dreaming that Romo could have returned and seen the franchise turn over the undefeated Panthers before starting an incredible comeback to reach the playoffs.
Instead of their dream comeback, Jones has admitted that the season has quickly turned into a nightmare.
“I had a nightmare last night and I was hoping when I woke up this morning it was just that,” Jones said.
