Whoa, that was close.
I try hard not to let this "deteriorate" into a sports blog, but I have to throw a bone to the Cowboys.
They're 5-0 and won a game they had no business winning.
Tony Romo (never had his ribs, but I hear they're good) threw five (5) interceptions, 2 of which were returned for touchdowns, and lost a fumble.
Yet, through some very unlikely events, the Cowboys escaped with a victory.
They scored a touchdown with 20 seconds left in the game to trim the lead to 24-22, but they missed the 2-point conversion. They recovered the onside kick and moved the ball down the field with a few quick passes. Then the rookie kicker kicked a 53 yard field goal with 2 seconds left. But, it didn't count since Buffalo called a timeout just before the snap. So, he kicked it again, whereby the Cowboys scored 9 points in the final 20 seconds to win the game.
Whoa, that was close. They EASILY could have lost that game and I'm sure they would have, had they been using "the other guy's" break pads.
- The defense only gave up 3 points. Last week, the defense gave up zero (0) points. The defense had a rough start to the season, but it's pretty good.
- For the first time in a while, the Cowboys just may have a kicker.
- Jason Witten is Tony Romo's bread & butter.
- Tony Romo had a bad, bad Leroy Brown type game.
- The running game is more than a bit anemic.
- Terrell Owens continues to go hot & cold, dropping balls in important situations.
- For the 2nd week in a row, the special teams have let a kick be returned against them for a touchdown.
In case you missed the game, watch a 5-minute video recap.
Next Sunday the Cowboys host the 5-0 New England Patriots. They just might get a pretty harsh wake up call this week and they're be doomed if they play anything like they did tonight. But ... that was a game for the ages and a very exciting one to watch.
