MOST DISAPPOINTING PLAYER: Receiver Dez Bryant led the Cowboys with 69 catches for 838 yards and six touchdowns. But, he averaged a career-worst 12.1 yards per reception, was among the league leaders in dropped passes and did not record a 100-yard receiving game. He also struggled with knee tendinitis since November. There is a chance the Cowboys could ask Bryant to take a pay cut from his $12.5 million salary for next year or be cut in what could be an offseason of changes.
MOST SURPRISING PLAYER: Defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence had no sacks as a rookie, eight sacks in 2015 and one sack last year. He broke out with 14.5 sacks in 2017. He would have had more if not for the officials missing a number of holding calls. He played his way into a big-money contract extension if not a franchise tag worth $17 million or more.
