How nice of the Cowboys…

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

It was really nice of the Dallas Cowboys to let New Yorkers have a little moment of happiness on the tenth anniversary of 9/11. That’s the only reason why I think that Tony Romo would decide to throw a pass directly at all-world corner Darrelle Revis late in the fourth quarter.

It was the first time in the Cowboys’ history that they had lost a game after leading by 14+ points in the fourth quarter. That was a streak of 247 games (all wins except one tie) that went down the drain thanks to two crucial turnovers.

All said, I was actually impressed with the Cowboys performance. Going up against one of the toughest defences around and starting nearly an entire new offensive line, they stayed a potential Super Bowl contender. If not for Jason Witten being pushed out on the three – eventually leading to Romo’s fumble – or that terrible interception, this would have been a huge win to start the season for Dallas.

Well, at least they get to face the 49ers next week.

This week: 5-9-0 (With NE -7.5 and DEN -3 tonight)
