Carrying confidence: Dallas Cowboys custom playlist to help bounce back after Week 1 woes (2022)

The Dallas Cowboys are "America's Team"because they have excellent branding—spanning from coast to coast.

Three Lombardi Trophies in five years is impressive by any standard, but theCowboys of today are not Jimmy Johnson's Cowboys.

On Sunday, Dallas stumbled during a 19-3 loss to Tom Brady andthe Tampa Bay Buccaneers to begintheir 2022 season. To make matters worse,quarterbackDak Prescottsustained a fractured joint near his thumb in the fourth quarter, according to team owner Jerry Jones. The two-time Pro Bowler will have to undergo surgery andbe out for "several" weeks.

The start was less than ideal forDallas, which hasnot made it to the Super Bowl since 1996. The glory days' triumvirate of Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith are no more.

But the Cowboys are still coming off a 12-5 season in 2021 where they made the playoffs for the first time since 2018 — also the last time they posted a winning record.

Is either the next Deion "Prime Time" Sanders? They'vegot a while to go before that comparison, but having the legacy woven into the team's DNA sure helps.

The beat pays homage to 2Pac's classic "Ambitionz Az a Ridah"and Big Tuck's "Southside Da Realist," a Southern anthem that samples the iconic piano loop. It's a blend of SoCal-meets-Dallas that All-Pro tackle and USC grad Tyron Smith could appreciate as he motivates himself to recover from a knee injury and cheers his teammates on in the meantime.

The D.O.C.- "It's Funky Enough"

Even though The D.O.C. made history with the West Coast as a key figure of N.W.A and the gangster rap movement,he actually hails from Dallas.

Usher ft. Lil Jon & Ludacris - "Yeah"

At this point, Usher is an international superstar, but it all began in Dallas. Of allUsher's songs, "Yeah" has to be the best hype track.
