A wise man once said, “Winning cures all!” What an amazing win. I don’t know about you, but I seen a prepared and focused team Sunday night, not one filled with turmoil and drama as the media projected. A very well deserved “W” puts the Cowboys in the number one seed in the NFC wildcard race to the playoffs.
The Dallas defense absolutely exploded on the New York Giants. A healthy Terence Newman showed up to play, intercepting 2 passes and leading the team in tackles. While Demarcus Ware continued to impress the world with his attack, racking up 3 sacks. Ware is leading the league now with 19 sacks. In all, the Dallas defense sacked the reigning Super Bowl MVP Manning eight times.
As starters have been struck down all season long by injuries, several rookies have been given unforeseen opportunities to shine. Third string running back Tashard Choice has been one of those lucky stars, and hasn’t let us down. Choice accumulated 91 rushing yards and his first NFL touchdown. Cornerback Orlando Scandrick also had a nice game with 4 tackles, second only to Terence Newman’s 6 hits.
Tony Romo took some hard hits that at times worried the Cowboys faithful, but the resilient quarterback never backed down. Romo went 20 for 30 with 244 yards and touchdown passes to Patrick Crayton and Deon Anderson. As stated in his post game interview, Romo may wake up sore tomorrow but will be fine after a few days rest.
During the game Romo, Witten and Owens were seen laughing and smiling together, and immediately after the game the three musketeers were interviewed and seemed like one happy family. Though Terrell denied the ‘drama’ allegations in his postgame press conference, it doesn’t matter anymore. A nice win solves everything and the media is certainly eating their words now. Especially a certain ESPN reporter who was specifically called out by Terrell Owens. Whose laughing now?
Its a wonderful day to be a Cowboys fan! Enjoy it!
