So the Dallas Cowboys have finally tasted victory in February after they won a contest in February for the first time.

Even though the Cowboys have won five Super Bowls, all of those wins took place when the games were played in January.  

So as opposed to the annual championship title game that now takes place in February every year, the Cowboys have today won the right to the 16th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft in May.

They battled out with the Baltimore Ravens Wednesday over a coin toss and won out.

The coin toss was needed because both the Cowboys and Ravens finished with 8-8 records, and a .484 strength of schedule. 

Rather than the toss having to be called in the air, the NFL decided to use a coin with both teams logos on either side of the coin. 

The actual winning or losing of the 16th overall pick is not likely to matter too much. 

This is because both teams have very different views on what they need in the first round of the draft. 

The Cowboys are very likely to pick up a defender and the Ravens need a receiver, according to recent NFL Draft mock reports
