The Dallas Cowboys have always fared well in popularity contests. Anyone that looks at annual top-rated television programs will undoubtedly find several Cowboys games at the top of the list. When the team is doing well, that popularity is often measured in the fan vote portion of the Pro Bowl process and 2021 is no exception.
With Dallas sporting a comfortable lead in the NFC East a little past the halfway point with a 7-3 record, the standout individual performances have motivated Cowboys Nation to flood the voting process. As a result, several Cowboys are in in good position in the early going for one-third of the overall selection process. Cornerback Trevon Diggsis doing the best among them in fifth place overall while running away with the interception lead with eight in 10 games including two Pick 6s.
