Cowboys in Super Bowl XLV in Arlington? Don't Bet on it.

Cowboys in Super Bowl XLV in Arlington? Don't Bet on it.

We all know Jerry Jones' grandiose vision: For the Dallas Cowboys to play in Super Bowl XLV.

Furthermore, to be the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl in its own city. Everything's bigger in Texas, including the dreams.

But odds - and next season's schedule - say it ain't likely to happen.

The NFL is a year-to-year, even a week-to-week league these days. But the Cowboys seemingly will have the NFC's toughest schedule next season. Ouch.

Upcoming Events

Dallas faces both Super Bowl teams - the Colts and Saints - and only three games on the schedule (Detroit and Washington twice) are against teams with a 6-10 or worse records in 2009. Overall, Cowboys' opponents have a .543 winning percentage (139-117).

Only two teams - the Texans and Titans - have tougher schedules based on opponents' winning percentage in 2009.

Good luck.
