Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
Quarterback Troy Aikman connected with many of his fastest receivers during this season while Emmitt Smith and others kept rushing for impressive yardage. As the featured clips show, Shante Carver, Chad Hennings, and Tony Tolbert provided the team with numerous sacks. Yet the Dallas Cowboys' best efforts failed to propel them to the top of the NFC East division. In fact, the fall of 1997 was a period of transition, since it was Coach Barry Switzer's fourth and final season with the Cowboys. Game footage and commentary by the coaching staff and players help recall some of the team's best plays of the season.
